Creating a Clinical Case

Clinical Cases batch samples together per 'Patient Disease Event' for analysis, it may stretch over any period time and include both human and food, water or other relevant samples. A number of additional attributes, e.g. symptoms, are captured per Case

Clinical Cases are good examples of how Senaite's underlying Batching functionality is customised for a given scenario
