AssetGather for Lab equipment tracking

Lab and Scientific Equipment Tracking Software

Overview

Corporations and Government Agencies invest tens of millions of dollars on equipping their labs, regardless of the type of lab – electronic, bio tech, geological, materials, mechanical or industrial. There are multiple stakeholders interested in knowing whether the lab equipment is where it is supposed to be. The most high profile of them are the Finance and Lab management personnel. They have a common need to know whether the inventory of their lab equipment is accurate and if their location is known.

Lab equipment may be fixed or mobile. It is essential to know where lab equipment is at any point of time to save valuable time that may otherwise be wasted by scientists, engineers or medical personnel in locating this equipment.

Lab Inventory managers need to be able to quickly locate equipment when there is a request for it and always keep abreast of which team is using which lab equipment and if it was indeed still being used. Further, the current whereabouts and status of the lab equipment needs to be gathered without impeding the activities of the scientists and technicians.

RFID Based Laboratory Equipment Management & Monitoring

Handheld RFID reader and/or fixed RFID readers can be used to monitor presence of equipment in lab areas and to perform very accurate and comprehensive inventory audits quickly. With easy lookups in AssetPulse RFID asset inventory management software, engineers, scientists and technicians save valuable time searching for equipment or prototypes.

Additionally, across all industries and with the medical or pharmaceutical specifically, it is essential that lab managers adhere to numerous regulatory compliances to ensure product integrity, which include proper instrument calibration in a timely manner. Lab equipment is sent out to third party calibration centres or in-house calibration teams and a calibration certificate is issued against equipment after validation. Calibration certificate is a mandatory document that is referred for compliance standard prior to producing pharmaceutical products.

As with any manual process, keeping track of calibration certificates and calibration-due-dates is subject to human error.

RFID Based Lab Asset Management System For Auditing Inventory rapidly
