Once the experiment is completed, the report of the execution - that contains all information about both the preparation and the execution phase of a protocol – is generated and displayed to the user.
In this article we will see how to release this experiment report and “e-sign” it in order to make it available for a later peer-review.
Note: After experiment completion, connected devices will be available (“Ready” status) without the need of releasing the report.
1 - Release and optionally Sign your experiment report
After providing all the information necessary about your samples (See article: Complete and retrieve 🏷️ sample info at the end of the experiment), you will be invited to release the report of the execution.
This step is necessary to publish the experiment report on your OneLab project and make it accessible to your colleagues.
How to do it?
a. Click on the “Release report“ button on the top right of the screen
b. Enter the mandatory reason behind this action. This reason will be displayed directly in the report.
Optionally, you can enter both email and password to “e-sign” this experiment report.
Important: This e-signature has two purposes:
Since the experiment report contains metadata gathered during the experiment, a e-signature can be required to meet regulated environment requirements.
It’s a mandatory step to make your experiment report available for a peer-review
c. The experiment report is now properly released and signed with your information
2 - (Optional) Review an experiment report
This step is only available if the experiment report has been previously released AND signed.
Note: The review can only be done by someone else than the experiment performer
How to do it?
a. On your project experiment list, Filter the list with only “Signed” reports and open a signed report.
b. Click on the “Review” button next to your experiment title.
c. Enter the reason of your review and please re-enter your credentials in order to “e-sign” your review.
d. Your review has now been recorded and is directly accessible in the report as well as the previous release and signature of this experiment report.
