A "batch" is a collection of different "Determinations" within a database.
The assignment of determinations to a "batch" can be carried out when entering the sample data at the workplace. An existing or a new batch name can be chosen. In the first case, the determinations are added to the selected "batch", and in the second case, a new "batch" is created. In the database, it is also possible to create or delete a "batch" or to add existing determinations to a "batch".
These determinations can be simply filtered out of the whole set of determinations using the batch names. The batch assignment is used for fast viewing of data that belong together. There are also further options, such as filters, etc., to find data.
The maximum batch size is 500 determinations. If an attempt is made to add more determinations, these will be ignored. New determinations are normally stored in the "Database". No data is lost.
If a "Batch" is deleted, only the links of the determinations to the "Batch" are deleted, but no data.
