Correcting Errors in Assay Runs

There may be times that you read an assay output file and, for whatever reason, there is an error in the run. This might happen, for example, if there is a discrepancy between the placement of a specimen in LDMS and your physical assay plate. In this case, there is nothing wrong with the results, but rather LDMS expects the specimens to be in a different plate location. You correct the position of specimens on the plate, LDMS will be able to read the results again, and they will now be correct. For other issues, only a single specimen by be affected, and it will be more cost efficient to test that one specimen on another plate to correct it.

This section will describe a few common errors that can occur and how to correct them.
