So far my overall experience with eLabInventory has been very good, with the customizable sample templates being a huge time saver and allowing for consistent data entry between both of our sites. There are some problematic bugs with the new inventory system when trying to find samples that were generated in the previous system but my understanding is that these are being actively addressed.

Pros

The easy generation of new samples and organization of those samples is a key mechanism that makes eLab a crucial step in our workflows.

Cons

There are some challenges with the new inventory system, particularly when searching for samples that were generated in the previous system where samples are not able to be found even when looking up the unique identifier. I know these bugs are being worked on but wanted to point out that as of currently they are persisting.

An Easy-to-Use Inventory Management System

Reviewed on 2023/09/20

eLabInventory has been an overall very positive investment and experience for our organization. We have been able to consolidate and organize our stored inventory in multiple spaces, which was originally solely tracked by Excel files or staff memory. We have streamlined our processes for accessing existing samples and storing new ones, as well as our shipping procedure. We are able to quickly locate, identify, and manipulate sample entries using eLabInventory, obtaining the additional details of each sample by easily exporting the data from the software. We remain GLP compliant through the audit-trail features of the system and can quickly search archived entries for auditing or study coordination. The Customer Serivce provided by the US Eastern team has been phenomenal and they are extremely knowledgeable; they are very quick to respond and very helpful when issues arise. All customers also can submit requests for new features, some of which eventually make it into the software configuration in future updates.

Pros

eLabInventory allows users to enter, search, locate, relocate, and export data in a simple UI. The interface is clean and relatively easy to navigate, with only needed features visible. It is completely customizable as far as sample type, field options, label templating, and storage/equipment configuration. The add-ons for barcode automation and bulk sample manipulation are extremely useful and make the software more robust on a daily-use basis.

Cons

There were unique implementation challenges when first setting up the software, like not being able to transfer samples between groups with having Shared storage locations or specific automation steps not executing to manipulate samples in the most efficient ways. Once the capabilities and limitations of the software were learned, then these were relatively straight-forward items to work with, but not having a clear understanding of how the software operates leading up to implementation, along with an overwhelming Help document library, made fast implementation unsuccessful. Better/more training from the vendor, tutorial videos rather than text or screenshots, and a pre-made framework version to fit our organization's needs would have been very helpful.

Response from eLabNext

More than just documentation

Implementation of eLabJournal improved our internal Project-Structure.

Implementation of eLabJournal improved our internal Project-Structure.

Pros

For me personally, elabjournal is not only a high-level documentation platform, it actually improves my experiment planning, design and execution. It does so by enforcing the user to follow a rigid Project structure Project > Study > Experiment with specified aims and subaims breaking a complex project into simple tasks.

Cons

view and editing tables is not integrated very well.

Response from eLabNext

Hi Georg, thank you for taking the time to review eLabInventory! I'm happy to report that our team is hard at work on a major redesign of our Inventory module that will incorporate a streamlined approach to viewing sample records in table/list view. Until your dedicated account manager is always available for a free workflow consultation and may have some great suggestions for improving your process for importing samples in bulk!
