Questions about the management of lab inventory and samples
Yes, there is an option to import existing data of inventory collections in the lab. We offer a tool to import samples into the system. Also, we can provide Excel templates that you can fill out to import specimens, strains, and other inventory collections. Migration from Excel templates is offered as an additional service when setting up your lab for the first time. In this way, we can help make sure the setup for your lab runs as smoothly as possible and the system is delivered as a ready-to-use solution.

In case a field is removed, the stored data in this field for stored samples remains available. When a field is added, the field is appended to the sample entry form. Read more.
