Ziath announced a sample management tool for laboratories that are tasked with keeping smaller inventories of stored samples well organized.

Samples is a powerful and easy-to-use software suite that includes a host of features designed to streamline sample storage workflows and makes adding and searching sample information quick and simple, the company says. Highly intuitive data import tools allow rapid integration with existing sample databases, while its range of sample entry options and fully editable set-up parameters means the system can be optimized for a laboratory or storage facility. 

Samples software includes facility for customizable tracking tags and sample types allowing users to associate fully searchable data with samples. Creating an unlimited number of tracking tags enables laboratories to precisely describe their samples using a variety of descriptor formats including free text, quantities, dates and even links to documents such as safety or regulatory datasheets. Laboratories using samples software can simply switch between viewing graphical displays of container layouts or a list of all containers and samples.

Designed to save Labs time, Samples software allows users to save frequently used searches and customize them for future use. An archive function provides access to historical data, even when a container has been permanently removed from storage.

Ziath specializes in instrumentation control and information management in both the academic and the pharmaceutical/biotech industry sectors with a focus on the application of laboratory automation. In particular, the company focuses on managing large sample libraries (compound management, biobanking and sample management) using 2D datamatrix tubes.
