Removing a specimen from storage

Removing a specimen from storage removes its storage location assignment.

About this task

Specimens that are removed from storage are not deleted. They can still be found and viewed using the Specimen Management task and various reports.


  1. From the LDMS menu bar, click Tasks > Storage Management.
  2. Locate and select the specimen to be removed from storage.
    You can select multiple specimens at once by holding down the Ctrl or Shift keys.
  3. In the LDMS tool bar, click the Delete button.
  4. Optional: To assign the never store property to the specimen, select the Permanent Delete From Storage option.
    Never store means that the specimen will not be listed as available to be stored again in LDMS.
  5. Click Yes.
    To remove all specimens that were selected without being prompted, click Yes to all instead.
