OneLab offers you the possibility to execute the protocol you designed in different ways (see the article “How to execute your protocol”). Only logged in users can execute protocols and depending on the status of the user, more or less rights are acquired (see the article “Permission management system”).
To see which experiments were executed, you go to the Projects tab (1), and on the left side click on “Experiments” (2) to list the automatically generated reports of the execution of your protocols. The subscript (3a) indicates how many experiments were executed, while all of them are listed below (3b). When you click on the contextual menu button on the right ( ⋮ ), a pop-up menu appears giving you two choices: “Go to protocol” and “Archive” (4).
When you click on one of the entries, you will be brought to your desired experiment report.
OneLab automatically generates a report during the execution of your protocols. If your experiment is successfully finished or aborted along the way is tracked. OneLab also keeps track of many other important pieces of information:
- The title of the experiment (1)
- The setup that is used (manual or semi-automatic) (2)
- The operator who executed the protocol (3)
- Any potential errors that occurred during the execution (4)
- The protocol (owner, description, project folder, creation, last modification) (5)
- A material list (devices, tools, pipettes, tips, reagents and consumables/labware) (6)
- Protocol steps and duration.
The arrow indicates the contextual menu, giving you the option to print the report (as a PDF file).
The protocol steps and the total execution time are listed at the bottom of the report:
