Elemental Machines, a developer of universal laboratory asset monitoring technology for research and clinical labs around the world, has released a free scheduling and booking software that eliminates a longstanding source of inefficiency in the lab operations space.
The release follows a season of significant disruption to scientific operations and commemorates the long-awaited complete reopening of many labs around the world.
“Elemental Calendar is our gift to the scientific community – a response to a critical need we observed while listening to our customers,” said Elemental Machines CEO Sridhar Iyengar. “We were confounded by the lack of scheduling and asset booking solutions available to essential [lab operations] professionals. Forced to improvise, some of our customers had resorted to creating standalone Google Calendars for each and every asset under their management.”
As teams return to the lab in full, seamless equipment scheduling is urgently needed. Elemental Calendar marries a familiar calendar interface with novel features and function built for lab operations, such as the ability to reserve assets, assign users, and tag protocols for any instrument across the lab.
Existing Elemental Machines customers will find Elemental Calendar in their dashboard today, while other lab operations professionals can request access to the scheduling software without cost and with no strings attached.
