Scientists check out containers when they take them out of storage and use them in the lab. Checking out containers helps keep the inventory up to date, and lets other users know when a container is unavailable.
To check out a container:
1. Select the container(s) you wish to check out
2. Select the test tube icon in the top right followed by "Check-out".
3. Fill in the Assignee field with the user who is checking out the containers. Optionally add information in the comment field to let other team members know why the container is checked out and add the containers to a worklist, if applicable.
4. Select "Check-out". The containers will be checked out until a user checks them back in by selecting the test tube icon once more followed by "Check-in".
