Track Lab Inventory With QR Code Or Barcode Scanning

Use smartphones and a mobile app to track lab inventory and supplies. No additional hardware is required: mobile devices (smartphones or tablets running iOS or android) can be used for barcode scanning, processing inventory transaction, data entry and look up.

A QR Inventory software allows you to create custom inventory transactions that work for your lab process and workflow. You can record receiving new inventory and inventory lots, storage, inventory use for a process or an expirement, adding inventory lot to the product batch or sample, discarding, and more. Lab employees do inventory tracking in real time by scanning a QR code or barcode label with a mobile app. A QR Inventory software automatically adjusts inventory stock, and keeps records of all inventory transactions.

Authorized software users can access real time inventory stock and locations in the mobile app or via a cloud software web dashboard. You can set min and max inventory levels, and receive alertd when the lab supplies need to be re-ordered.

Lot Tracking And Traceability For Laboratories

A QR Inventory software significantly reduces the amount of manual labor and paperwork which are required for the lab inventory management and traceability. Instead of using paper notes or spreadsheets, you label each inventory lot, scan a QR code and record all traceability information for this lot. Then scan a QR code label on the lot when you transfer or use it - and your lab "paperwork" is done. You will be able to review lot information, add or update it when needed, and review the lot transactions history and all collected info.

You can easily record which inventory lots are used in the final product batch in the mobile app by scanning a lot number QR code against ingredients list.

You can always review the complete lot history and the list of the lot numbers used for each process or final product batch. You can do so by scanning a QR code with a mobile app, or on the office computer via a cloud software web dashboard.

Lab Sample Tracking: A Complete Lifecycle Of The Lab Samples

A QR Inventory software has methods and tools that allow you to track lab samples from the sample source to the end of the sample workflow process, through all workflow steps, and collect required data on each step. Lab sample chain of custody and date / time of the process steps are recorded automatically and are included in the sample lifecycle reports.

As you receive or produce a sample, you label it with a barcode or QR code, and record all initial data that you need to keep track of. From there lab employees track each sample through the process steps using a barcode / QR code scanning mobile app. They can record any extra info on each step in the mobile app using digital forms.

On any step of the process an authorized lab employees can access sample info in the mobile app with one scan of a QR code or a barcode.

Based on your workflow, you may need to enter all sample info in the beginning, or enter it gradually as the sample is moved through the lab process. A QR Inventory software allows you to do both. You can record extra data as needed, and this info is instantly available in the sample lifecycle reports.

If you split the lab sample into several parts during the process, you do not need to re-enter all traceability info for each part. All you need to do is scan the QR code on the original lab sample, and all sample properties will be passed on to the split parts. You can then add more data for each split off lab sample as it moves further through the workflow.

IoT Lab Temperature And Humidity Monitoring System

An IoT temperature and humidity monitoring system allows you to monitor conditions in different parts of the lab remotely without a need for the manual measurements. Make sure that your lab inventory is always stored at the proper conditions. Prevent waste, spoilage and the need to re-do lab tests.
