To register samples, it is first necessary to create a new shipment. Please see the other tutorials for instructions on how to do this.
Once a Shipment has been created click the "Add Container" button on a dewar in the shipment
This will take you to the register container page. Here you can register samples for this puck.
Firstly you need to give the new puck a name. After that each sample needs to be given a protein acronym and sample name as a minimum. Barcode and spacegroup can also be specified if needed. The "+" icon can be used to clone a sample in a similar mannar to the GDA client.
When a protein acronym and sample name has been specified ISPyB considers the sample to be valid and shows this as a green circle in the puck graphic. You can navigate to a particular sample position by clicking on the puck graphic
If you need to add a new protein acronym, simply type into the protein acronym box and press Tab
You will be prompted to confirm the new protein addition
Click "Ok" and the new protein will be created
Finally to save your new puck click "Add Container" at the bottom of the page
Although not recommended, ISPyB2 supports the old style Excel Spreadsheet. First fill in the spreadsheet as you would usually.
Now select the current spreadsheet using CTRL-A (CMD-A on Mac) to select the spreadsheet. Depending on your location in the sheet you may need to press this twice.
Now press CTRL-C (CMD-C on Mac) to copy the contents of the selection to the clipboard. Now go back to ISPyB2 and click the "Paste from Spreadsheet" button
This will show a popup. In this popup press CTRL-V (CMD-V on Mac) to paste the contents of the clipboard, then click "Insert"
The copied samples will now be inserted into the current puck
