How to add requests for items without catalog numbers (like primers/oligos, services, etc.)

Requests for primers and oligos should be added to Quartzy in a slightly different way than a normal request. Instead of adding multiple requests for each individual primer (which can be up to hundreds at once!), submit one request for the entire order and attach the order spreadsheet. 

1. From the Requests module, click the Add Request button.


2. On the next page, click the Skip Lookup option to get to the Add Request Form.


3. In the Item Name field, enter "Custom primer synthesis [see attached]." Click the Upload File button and attach the order spreadsheet that your purchaser needs, so they can place the order for those primers with the vendor. 

Note: Different vendors may have different order spreadsheets


4. Once the items have been delivered, someone in the lab will want to mark the order as Received. When marking primer/oligo orders as Received, uncheck the Add item to Inventory box, so the item details are not added to the Inventory. 

Instead, upload the primers as individual inventory items using these instructions.
