Data import dialog. Shown is the data import dialog for importing a batch of 384 well plates, read from the FLUOstar Optima. If the barcode reader has failed, or if a file format is read that does not contain barcodes, the barcode field has to be entered manually, based on the order of the plate run. The system shows whether or not a plate with the corresponding barcode exists in the database. If such a plate exists the user can select to import the data for it.
