Creating A New Supply Order

Modified on: Fri, 20 Jan, 2023 at 11:09 AM

If you need to create a new order, the Supplies tab is where you want to go. You will be taken through a multi-step process to submit your order. The invoice and report information should be populated the same way you would populate your Chain of Custody or eCOC when submitting samples.

Orders can be created based on the tests that you require or you can simply order bulk supplies. Keep in mind that ordering by test will allow you to quickly turn your order into a new eCOC template or submission.
