The inventory application allows you to search for containers, boxes, plates, and locations based on a variety of attributes. 

To begin, click on the Storage button on the side panel and then click Filter:


You can search on fields inherent to the container itself, such as name, creator, date created. If you have set up customized fields for the container, you can select "Field."

Container contents 

If you want to search for containers based on the entities or batches that are contained inside them, you can select the options under Container Contents:


The contents filter allows you to specify one or more entities or batches. You can then specify if you want to search for items that have one of, all of, or none of these entities or batches.

Content type

This filter specifies an entity or batch type that is stored within a container, box, or plate.

Content field

The content field filter allows users to specify fields from the registry to filter on. In this example, a user specifies they want to search for containers that have a cell line that express a particular gene.
