Inventory management

Unlimited inventory lists and items

From lab-made (primers, plasmids) to purchased products (antibodies, chemicals), Labregister offers you the flexibility to organize and manage all your laboratory inventories in one place.

Import & Export of inventories

In Labregister you can add items manually, import them in bulk from pre-existing Excel files or use our API. Similarly, each inventory list can be exported as Excel or via API.

Define custom attributes

Define all the properties you need to describe the items inside each inventory list. You can also pick from several types including text, numbers, dates, dropdown and hyperlink.

For an antibodies list, these attribute properties could be clonality, lot number, application and expiry date.


In Labregister you can generate barcodes (2D and 3D) or scan them directly from the materials using a barcode scanner. The barcode is displayed as an image file to the item and you can search for materials using it.

File Attachments

You can attach multiple files to your inventory items to store important information, like chemical safety data sheets. PDF and images files can be directly previewed in Labregister. Other file types can be stored and downloaded.

Sample tracking

Connect inventory items to Labfolder

Seamlessly connect Labregister and Labfolder to reference inventory items directly in your lab notes. Set up protocols which link to samples and devices so that anyone accessing that protocol will see the properties of the material items.

Track inventory usage

For each inventory item in Labregister, you will be able to access all ELN entries, where the item is referenced.

Simple Search

All alterations in are recorded as different versions in Labregister. If you mentioned an item in your ELN entry, that reference will always link to the version of the item that was used, regardless of how many times it was changed afterward. You will also be able to easily navigate to the newest version of that item.
