The ability to automatically control stocks of consumables whilst processing samples can be a major time saver for busy laboratory managers, which is why Two Fold Software Limited is adding a Consumable Stock Control software module to its Version 1.1 release of Qualoupe LIMS software.
The Consumable Stock Control LIMS software has been specifically developed to ensure that laboratory users do not require any additional effort to keep control of their constantly changing stocks of consumables. The software has been tailored to enable users to avoid the stress associated with discovering they do not have a suitable consumable when processing a vital sample.
“Many test methods and analysis procedures performed on samples in a laboratory depend on the use of consumables to complete the task. For example, even a simple microbiology test often requires consumable items or materials such as a petri dish, a quantity of culture medium such as agar plus the necessary reagents,” explained Clive Collier, Two Fold Software’s Managing Director. Using Qualoupe’s new Consumable Stock Control LIMS software all the consumables used within the laboratory can be defined and a record created for each associated consumable. The record contains all the consumable’s details such as name, code, supplier, cost, shelf life and such like”.
The Consumable Stock Control software is one of a trio of modules now available as part of Qualoupe’s Version 1.1 LIMS software release. The other modules provide enhanced solutions for managing Stability Trials as well as providing a Multi-Group capability that offers complete data management flexibility for organizations and companies that not only have multiple sites but also include multiple laboratories within each site.
