Did you know that BICON has some new features that can help you filter that long scientific name list?

You no longer have to open the entire scientific name list located within the case.

It is divided into alphabetical order and you now can open just the portion of the list you need.

Once in the case you will have access to filter the scientific name list for that case.

For more infomation go to  How do I search by Scientific Name
