The protein acronym must match an approved sample in the proposal ERA. Approved samples are highlighted according to the safety level, for automated collection only green samples are permitted.
For automated MR or DIMPLE analysis, also add your protein sequence and any homologous/apo pdb files at this point.
Tick the automated/imager box (first experiment date will disappear).
When you are satisfied with the parameters you have entered, click the "+Queue" button on each puck, and they will join the automated queue. Your pucks will not be collected until after they have been queued.
The interface to upload samples has been updated in April 2022. See Registering Samples for details on the puck creation process. The minimal information on the Basic tab is:
The Unattended Tab:
When Samples are added, and the puck is queued for UDC, default information is added
The fields that are required for unattended collection are:
Fields dependent on the screening mode.
Note that screening mode is a required field, which defaults to None, which behaves as UDC did before Screening was available (before april 2022).
Screening mode: None

Ship your dewar as normal but please make sure you print and attach the shipment labels as these indicate to staff that the dewar is intended for automated data collection.
Your samples will enter our queue and you will receive an email once the data collection has finished. You may find it easier to view the results on ISPyB by using the filter or project features if your samples are across multiple pucks.
See Uploading samples using CSV file for uploading a larger number of samples.
