How you manage your stock of reagent and other consumables may not seem like the most important part your responsibilities, but it is vital to your diagnostic lab’s operations.
The Stockroom Struggle for Small and Mid-sized Labs
If your lab is like most, you still track stock in spreadsheets and logbooks. Unfortunately, such inefficient and error-prone manual methods can disrupt your workflow, strain your budget, and burden your techs. Most importantly, depleted or expired stock will delay—or even halt—your ability to perform tests. Small and mid-sized labs tend to think that their volume doesn’t justify a more advanced solution.
