Storage Management

Sample Manager Help
Managing the contents of your freezers and other storage systems is an essential component of sample management. There are endless ways to organize your sample materials, in a wide variety of systems on the market, both freezers and non-temperature-controlled options. With LabKey Storage 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 system, with shelves, racks, boxes, canes, bags, etc.
  • For freezers and other temperature controlled units, you can track storage temperatures and freeze/thaw counts for samples.
  • Track overall available storage 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 blood from patient X to complete the series of assays I want to run.
  • Find specific samples and know if they are available.
  • Assign samples to storage locations in groups of any size you need, including across multiple locations.
  • Move samples as needed and track each location change, creating a full timeline of any sample.
  • Control access to physical samples using storage-specific roles.
