Lab inventory – HCP

Lab Inventory Overview

The Lab Inventory section contains the list and details of all inventory items and their components in the system. Authorized users can manage those items, including details like type of substance or item, manufacturer, supplier, amount on hand, expiration dates etc., as well as add new items, dispose of expired items and the like. Users can also upload associated files, e.g. MSDSs, SOPs, etc.

Enter all available information. Fields in Bold are required. The item must be Active to be available for assignment to batches, and Published to prevent further modification.

  • NOTE: Once an item has been made Published and Active, you may add – BUT NOT REMOVE – Components. It is best practice to Save with minimum information filled in, then finish all information completely before making Active and Published.
