Sample Type (of Raw data)

Overview

Sample type is a text descriptor that identifies the origin of a Sample Measurement. For example,
If no sample type is specified, Katmandoo assigns an Unknown Sample Type.

Detail

Unknown Sample Type

The SampleType table has a record for Unknown Sample Type (Sample Type Name = Unknown Sample Type) which can be used when the sample type information is not available.

The string value of the "UnknownSampleTypeName" key in the .config file must match the Unknown Sample Type record in the Sample Type table. Please read important information before making any changes in the config file.
