Biologics: Freezer Management

This section is under construction for the 22.3 (March 2022) release of LabKey Biologics. For the previous version of this documentation, click here.

Managing the contents of your freezers is an essential component of sample management in a biologics research lab. There are endless ways to organize your sample materials, in a wide variety of freezers on the market. With LabKey Freezer Management, create an exact virtual match of your physical storage system, and then track where each sample can be found.

  • Match your digital storage to your physical storage.
  • Represent your exact physical freezer system, with shelves, racks, boxes, canes, bags, etc.
  • Track overall available freezer capacity helping you decide where to store new samples.
  • Answer questions about overall volume of samples by type and source; i.e. is there enough material from experiment A to complete the series of assays I want to run.
  • Find specific samples and know if they are available.
  • Move samples as needed and track each location change, including updating freeze/thaw counts and tracking amounts used.
