Traceability of data is crucial in research. In Labguru, all your data is traceable, including all uploaded attachments, calendar and task events.

Labguru's search functions:

1. Global Search engine

The Global Search, located on the top right of every Labguru page, is the most completed and powerful search tool of the system. All the account data can be found with it, including any text within your experimental research, attachments, images or any entry title; even all data owned by one team member.

NEW Boolean Search: Now, it is possible to combine keywords with operators (or modifiers) such as AND, NOT and OR to get more accurate results.
For example, search for "method" AND "RNA"  will output results to Labguru entries containing the two keywords.

Furthermore, within your search results you can narrow the hits by specifying the category. For example, clicking on 'Experiments' category will filter the results list to show results from experiment pages only.

NOTE: if you have more than one page of results the category filters will only affect the current page.

Advanced Search

This is a useful tool to find items in index pages (inventory lists/stocks/equipment). The basic search bar can be used to find items by name or SysID. Below the Search bar, there is a direct link to the advanced search tool. The advanced search tool enables you to filter by any of the fields in the collection or, by a combination of several fields by clicking on 'Add New Search Term' below the drop down menus.

Search by filters

The new filtering function in our Experiment and Inventory index pages allows you to display the needed information in a personalised view.

To do so, click on the more menu (3 dots) > Choose Columns to customize the fields you want to see, then choose filter to further narrow the results to the values you'd like to see.
When the more menu background is white, it indicates the fields where the filters values are applied.

NOTE: The system will remember this filter until cleared, even after logging out.
