eLabInventory assures quality for Utrecht University Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences

1 min read 18 Feb 2021

eLabInventory gives us full insight and control over all our used cell lines, plasmids and their history. Tracking down if a cell line is recently tested for mycoplasm before sending to a collaborating scientist is easy with eLabInventory, every time it gives me the confidence that I am in control over the quality of our work.

Utrecht University 

Utrecht University is an international research university of the highest quality–alma mater of many leading names, academics, and scientists who have made significant contributions to the advancement of society.

The core activity of the department is the design and pre-clinical testing of tailor-made drug delivery systems for site-specific, time- and/or rate-controlled delivery of small molecular weight drugs, therapeutic proteins, nucleic acids (including DNA and siRNA), and antigens for the therapy and prevention of life-threatening diseases such as cancer, inflammation, and infectious diseases.


Developing new strategies to solve delivery problems encountered by pharmacologically active compounds.


Organize and have a clear overview of GMOs, viruses and DNA storage

The Pharmaceuticals Department of Utrecht University (2021) works with genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and viruses in a lab specialising in cell culture systems. They needed a tool to help them track all of the cell lines, plasmids, antibodies, and probes in their storage freezers and fridges.


Clear overview of samples and facilitated monitoring of all groups

eLabInventory is an easy-to-learn, access, and adjust tool that helped them get a handle on all of their samples. It keeps track of batch numbers, clones, medical technology assessments (MTAs), contaminations, and GMO registrations through its GMO Permits.


Easy track and trace of samples with a history overview

Their GMO database is up to date and still growing with additional data about our samples. They even have a history of usage now, making the reporting process much more manageable.
