LabArchives is continuously working to improve our product offerings. Here are some of the exciting new platform releases. 

Inventory – Integration with ELN for Research

With this release, LabArchives Inventory users will be able to search their Inventory and easily add items to the Inventory list without leaving the notebook page.  Users can maintain an accurate list of items used in protocols while simultaneously reporting on usage of reagents and other Inventory items. Bi-directional links connect the entry in the Notebook with the Inventory items for quick reference.  To learn more visit here.

If your organization does not have a license to Inventory or if your 30-day trial has expired, users will be able to start a free 90-day trial (even if they had a free trial previously). Click here to start your 90-day trial.

Inventory – Bulk Update Items

LabArchives Inventory allows users with the Lab Manager role to edit multiple items at once by using the Bulk Update tool. This option allows for users to update several facets of several items, all at once.

The Bulk Update tool can be found in the Lab Management menu, which appears as the gear icon in your menu bar. To learn more visit here.

Inventory – Printer Agnostic – Create and Use Labels and QR Codes 

LabArchives Inventory now provides several options for creating and using QR codes to work with a printer of your choice.  Each item in the inventory will have a label automatically created. These labels have a QR code that can be printed and later scanned using the camera built into LabArchives Inventory on a mobile device. To learn more visit here.

Chemical Sketcher Widget NOW with Stoichiometry 

Automatically generated stoichiometry tables allow you to understand the relative quantities of each substance that takes part in a reaction or a compound that is formed without having to make these calculations by hand, which can be time consuming and can be error prone. After drawing a chemical reaction, you can create a stoichiometry table to quickly calculate multiple parameters of the reaction drawn. To learn more visit here.

Complex Passwords

As part of our dedication to users’ security, LabArchives will now require complex passwords for non-SSO users. Passwords will expire every 6 months and the past 24 passwords cannot be reused. Existing users will gradually be prompted to update their passwords with an in-app message 14 days and an email 7 days before the password expiration date. To learn more visit here.

SOC2 Certification Renewal

LabArchives continues to demonstrate our commitment to security with our renewal of SOC2 certification for our Electronic Lab Notebook. The SOC2 Type II audit of our ELN product focused on four major trust principles:

  • Security
  • Availability
  • Processing Integrity 
  • Confidentiality

Compliance with SOC2 highlights the ways customers can be confident in placing their research and education information into our ELN. To find more information about the SOC2 audit and the process to request access to the reports on our website, click here.
