On the Characterization page, the Delete button is now left-justified.CANANOLAB-264
An Error message no longer appears while deleting a Functionalized Entity.CANANOLAB-464

The Elsevier link for caNanoLab now works properly. When a user performs an Elsevier search, caNanoLab returns a caNanoLab logo if the publication has linked samples in the caNanoLab database. If not, caNanoLab sends a transparent one pixel image.

The following is the URL format that searches caNanoLab for a DOI ID.

For example:

On the Samples→General Info tab, the Delete and Copy buttons are now left justified and the Reset and Update buttons are right-justified.CANANOLAB-512
When Adding or Editing on the Samples→Composition→Functionalizing Entity page, the box no longer has a broken right border.CANANOLAB-514
When Editing a nanomaterial entity for a Composing Element on the Sample→Composition→Nanomaterial Entity page, the box no longer has a broken right border.CANANOLAB-515

When you Search for Samples, select a long Sample name (such as, HarvardU_Harvard_MIT_BWH_HarvardSCA-JApterkarAN2009-11), and click the link in the Data Availability column, the data table borders no longer appear beyond the popup box.



The following table lists and describes the new feature(s) in this caNanoLab release.

 Description of the improvement(s)JIRA issue link
In the Sample->Characterization→Data and Conditions segment, if you add a Column Type, Datum, you can add up to three cell viability Column Names: cell viability, cell viability B, and cell viability C.

With this arrangement, you can, for example, have columns for cell viability standard deviation, cell viability mean, and cell viability median.


In the Sample->Characterization→Data and Conditions segment, when you add values to each row of the matrix, you can preface each value with one of the following: Maintain the default, equal to (=), or select greater than (>), less than (<), or infinity (approximate).


Button sizing, color, and spacing are now consistent across all pages in the application.


Known Issues and Workarounds

The following table lists and describes how to work around the following remaining issues in caNanoLab.
