KeyLAB’s powerful storeroom management system will allow you to keep track of where your samples are and enable you to efficiently run your storage space whilst not losing track of where your samples are.

Client Sample References

KeyLAB allows you to store many client reference fields for each sample and allows you to reduce transcription errors by importing your client’s sample details from an AGS or Excel file.

This is vital to avoid complex discussions on orphan test records with your client. Using KeyLAB will ensure that data supplied to your client works in the environment they will be analyzing it in.

Maintaining client sample references is especially true if your client requires a data deliverable such as AGS.  Using KeyLAB will ensure that data supplied to your client works in the environment they will be analysing it in.
