Storage Location Management and Biobanking

May 28 2012 Read 12607 Times

Many organisations have a need to track the storage location, movement and disposal of samples, and other materials.

LabWare LIMS now includes a flexible Storage Location Manager module allowing customers to configure storage location hierarchies such as site, building, room, refrigerator, shelf etc.

The storage capacity of locations can be specified, including dimensions of containers such as boxes and plates and a highly intuitive explorer style interface is provided to navigate through available locations.

Storage Location Manager is seamlessly integrated into LIMS workflows.

For example, when samples arrive in the laboratory they can be received, automatically labelled, and then assigned to available locations which meet storage requirements such as freezer temperature and whether samples have to be stored together, such as, in contiguous box positions.

Finding a sample is easy. Storage Location Manager will quickly display a samples storage location after an operator enters the sample ID, or other identifying information.

Configurable forms are provided to capture important information when samples are shipped from the laboratory or disposed including the option to require a witness.

Storage Location Manager supplements the functionality already provided by LabWare LIMS Inventory Manager which tracks the quantities, usage and reorder levels of materials.
