LASTRADA's Laboratory Logbook, which can also be used as an inventory control system, allows you the flexibility to log as little or as much information as you choose about the sample you just received.
How to Add a Sample and Print a Sample Tag
From within the Sample Management Module, you can create a new sample by simply giving it an ID and adding a few very basic details about the sample. The process is quick and easy:
- Click to add a new sample.
- Assign a Sample ID, Department, Description, and the "Sampled By" name.
- Click to save the sample.
If you have the time to add more detailed information, such as notes for the technicians, the date the material was received, who received the sample, a description of the containers received, a project assignment, and so on, you can add it right away, or you can come back and add it later.
Once the information is added, click the Document Icon to generate your sample tag.
Utilizing Sample Management
Using the sample information is easy. For example, a material producer who is doing testing for another location in the organization can simply create a new sample and pull the sample data from within Sample Management.
Likewise, an engineering lab who is creating a testing program can access the sampling logbook from within the testing program window, pull in the sample data, and add the relevant tests.
