AutoQC importing replicates with the same name bonnie baker  2018-07-11
 

I'm trying to use AutoQC-daily to control chart our daily instrument QC data in Panorama. Each day we submit the same batch, but change the date on the output *.wiff file. As such, the QC data all has the same name and the AutoQC log file shows the error:
"The replicate MRM 100ng_mL 001 already exists in the given document and the --import-append option is not specified. The replicate will not be added to the document."

Is there a workaround?

Hi Bonnie,

I can't think of a workaround for this. Sorry about that. The sample file names have to be different between *.wiff files for Skyline to be able to import them via AutoQC Loader. We should probably use a combination of the wiff file name and sample name or the acquisition time to recognize that even though the sample name is the same the data is new. We will work on implementing this in a future release. I will keep you posted.

Thanks,
Vagisha

Vagisha,
I saw the recent Skyline (01/08/2019) release and gave AutoQC uploading another try. It appears the AutoQC Loader is still unable to upload *.wiff files with repeat sample names. I'm just checking in to see if I missed something or if it's still on the "to do" list for the future.
Thanks,
Bonnie

Hi Bonnie,

The current release does not include the ability to import wiff files with the same sample names. But it should be added to the next release. I have added it to our issues list (https://skyline.ms/issues/home/issues/details.view?issueId=627).

Thanks,
Vagisha
