Freezerworks Base Edition

Freezerworks Base is essential for successful laboratory managementBase Edition offers the essentials for effective sample management and freezer inventory. It is for the site that operates as one group, needing a limited number of data fields, and accessing Samples and Aliquots from the same entry, search, and viewing screens.



Structure

  • You can create an unlimited number of Samples.
  • Each Sample can have an unlimited number of Aliquots assigned to it (children).
  • Each Aliquot can have multiple Transactions (e.g., records reflecting work done to aliquots, aliquot transfer, etc.) assigned to it.


Freezerworks assigns a unique identifier to each Sample and Aliquot. It also assigns a “globally unique” number to each Sample and Aliquot so that Samples and Aliquots can be transferred between different installations of Freezerworks and still maintain their unique identities.

Features

User Defined Fields: Create up to 30 configurable fields to store valuable data on each Sample and Aliquot. The User Defined Field “toolkit” includes several field types and properties from which to select. See the Ascent Edition for additional field types.
