Tip #143: Restoring an Empower Project Archived in NuGenesis LMS

Welcome back to Get Empowered! In the last Empower tip-of-the-week post for Empower Chromatography Data Software, we learned how to use NuGenesis to automatically archive an Empower project (Tip #142).

In this week’s tip, we will learn how to restore an Empower project that has been archived by NuGenesis Laboratory Management System (LMS).

Let’s get started.

Step 1

From the NuGenesis Scientific Data Management System (SDMS) web interface, select Browse Projects (figure 1).

Step 2

Navigate to the NuGenesis SDMS File Capture project that contains your Empower project(s) to be restored and pick a view to show your projects. Select your project(s) of interest and click ‘Restore icon’. (figure 2)

Step 3

Pick the temporary restore folder where NuGenesis will unpack the project data prior to importing into Empower and click ‘Begin Restore’ (figure 3).

Step 4

Select the Parent Project for your restored project, and optionally give your restored project a different name, then click ‘Restore’. You will be prompted with a success message followed by an activity summary. Click ‘Exit Restore’ (figure 4).

Step 5

NuGenesis has now restored your archived project back into Empower. In cases where you might have many projects archived into NuGenesis, the powerful search features of NuGenesis allows you to search across those archived projects for many pieces of metadata including but not limited to Sample Name, Acquired By, and Instrument Method. The results of our work can be seen in figure 5.

It’s that easy!

Final notes:  

  • Your Empower user will need to have the appropriate privileges to restore projects.
  • Your NuGenesis user will need to have the appropriate privileges to access NuGenesis SDMS.
  • You need to have a created a temporary holding folder for Step 3.
