Analysis templates are kind-of similar to Analysis Profiles, but allow the values to be changed when adding new Samples and to pre-define Sample Partitions as well as the selected analyses per partition.
Another key difference to Analysis Profiles is that only one Analysis Template can be added when adding a new Sample.
Add global Analysis Templates
Analysis Templates can be added globally for the whole LIMS or per Client. Here we are going to add one that is available globally.

Add now the remaining required fields and press the Save button when you are done.
Receive the sample after creation by selecting it in the list and press the Receive button. The partition view opens now automatically with the selected analyses from the template assigned to each partition.
