Creating a Specimen from a Culture Harvest

You typically can't find cultures and culture harvests in LDMS Specimen Management , in Shipping , or in Storage . This is due to the way harvests are derived from an aliquot, and most parts of LDMS were designed with aliquots as the smallest unit of information.

It is possible to create a special specimen from a culture harvest, allowing you to utilize LDMS's storage, shipping, etc. features, just like any other specimen. These special specimens are called culture derivatives.
