Create Lab Samples when a Lab Test Batch "Required Testing" (LTB Option) is required.
METRC requires a Lab Test Batch (LTB) "Required Testing" selection or "LTB Option" when creating a lab sample package in specific states such as Massachusetts and Michigan.
The METRC API currently does not support passing the LTB "Required Testing" selection from Flourish to METRC. Due to this METRC limitation, you must create the lab sample directly in METRC and sync it back to Flourish.
Please follow the steps below:
- In METRC - Create the lab sample package.
- In Flourish Software - Go to Inventory and click the "Sync METRC Packages" button.
- Follow the standard outbound process to transfer the package to the lab.
Lab Test Batch "Required Testing" Selection, also referred to the "LTB Option" in METRC
Currently, in Massachusetts and Michigan, when you create a lab sample package, METRC requires you to select the lab test's purpose (LTB selection).
You can see below that you have to select from the multiple options when creating the lab sample package.
