When creating storages in Labguru, there is an option to set a type, the types are: Room, Shelf, Closet, Drawer, Refrigerator, Freezer, Cryo container, Vertical rack, slide rack, Horizontal rack and Other.

First step: when starting a new account, the best practice would be to define all the rooms in which your items are being stored such as lab rooms, cold rooms, equipment room, tissue culture, etc.

Second step: then you can set the storage locations such as closets, freezers, refrigerators, and cryogenic tanks.

Third step: inside of these locations, you can add more specific details and add your racks, shelves and drawers.

In Labguru there are three types of racks that can be added to storage units:

Vertical rack:

It's commonly used for tanks like liquid nitrogen tanks or deep containers. Only rows can be added to this type of racks, and boxes can be added into each one of the wells.

Slide rack:

These type of racks can be found in freezers and refrigerators for keeping boxes more organised. This rack has to be defined by number of rows and columns.

Horizontal rack:

Similar to the slide rack, this one also has to be defined by number of rows and columns, and a box can go into each empty cell.

Images and specific details of each storage location can be added in the description


If you're uncertain of which type of storage location you need to set, we recommend using the "Other" option in the menu
