Labguru helps you specify the physical storage location of all materials in your lab: define shelves, freezers and closets, through racks of boxes down to a single tube.

After mapping the lab's storage locations, you can "place" each consumable, molecular entity or a specimen collection in their respective location. One of the main advantages is the ability to combine knowledge with logistical information while still keeping both well-defined and in context - Lab knowledge regarding a consumable/collection item, is saved and managed in one module (Inventory) and exact position is kept under the storage module.

Start with adding all the rooms in which your items are being stored such as lab room, hallways, equipment room, tissue culture and so on. Then set the storage locations - freezers, shelves, closets and liquid N2 tanks. You can settle for that but we do recommend to set the shelves, drawers and the racks within each unit. You can add boxes to racks and storage locations. Then you will be able to find exactly what you are looking for, even if you haven't been using it for a while - Labguru will keep you on top of everything.
