Every sample can be configured to have an owner (or owners) on whose behalf you are storing the sample. This may be a patient, another establishment, researcher or anything you want to associate the samples with. As with item types, properties are configured to hold information about an owner you wish to track.
As in the Items window, there is a search window displaying all the fields, both system and user defined. You type into the filter grid fields, specific details about the owners you want to display. Once you have entered all the details, clicking search will return the matching owners.
From the Owner window, you can easily call up the Items window to show all of the selected owner’s samples.
