Fighting Sisyphean lab tasks with timely reminders. Order requests that aren't marked as received longer than usual would receive timely reminders!


Have you ever wondered what happens to your lab when ordered chemical arrives, but neither marked as received nor checked-in?

Your lab gets into the deadly loop and inventory becomes out-of-date. With every new item that skips the check-in process, whole system integrity is compromised, which at some point will haunt lab members back.


The solution

We have great news for our whole lab community!!!
Starting from today, LabSuit helps you to follow up on every order request!
For example, let's say you submit a request for imidazole. At some point it's status is advanced to "Ordered", but never changed to "Received".  It's likely that the piece of a lab supply was received a long time ago, but no-one marked it as received. Or maybe the item is still stuck at supplier's site. When you have a lot of tasks to take care of, it becomes extremely challenging to follow up on these cases. Also,  sometimes it may seem like a Sisyphean task.



How it works

From now, every item which is expected to be received, but takes longer than usual will trigger a reminder email. Every item type has it own typical delivery time. LabSuit takes advantage of that, and that's how items that are usually delivered in 4 days would trigger reminder email in a week, items that are usually delivered in 10 days, would trigger reminder email in 2 weeks and so on.
That's just another way of how LabSuit makes your lab work smart and not hard.

Lab Fairy embraces Eli Lewis's lab at Ben Gurion university of the Negev

When there is a job for Lab Fairy it doesn't matter whether it's in the Noth or in the South - Lab Fairy packs its tools and embarks for an assignment! This time Lab Fairy has got a call from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev.  It's a pure pleasure to work with a professional lab manager Having boarded a train heading South, the Lab Fairy had an hour ride to Beer Sheva. At the campus which is shared by hospital and university, Lab Fairy was met by amazing lab manager - Ronen Schuster. Ronen was so positive and cooperative that Lab Fairy had a true pleasure of working with him. Ronen accompanied us to the lab and gave very accurate instructions, so the expectations on both sides were very clear.  Lab Fairy plunged into work. Lab Fairy's target was a fridge full of antibodies. On previous  Lab Fairy  assignments,  there were containers  mostly  with chemicals, therefore dealing with the new type of inventory items made it even more interesting and exciting!

Case study: social media comes to help to accelerate one's research

Even Lab Researchers have their WOW! Moments “Labs-Around-Me” is a sharing economy concept for the world of research laboratories. Such labs can share chemicals, antibodies, plasmids and more, with other labs around them. As LabSuit's concept of “Labs-Around-Me” has evolved, more and more researchers have experienced  amazing WOW! moments when they begin to understand the benefit of our platform. True Story This is a story of something experienced by a LabSuit subscriber not so long ago. As we all know, “Labs-Around-Me” allow facilities and researchers to participate in a special LabSuit community. The community includes hundreds of labs - and, through a simple interface, allows them all to collaborate in locating and exchanging chemical reagents. Events begin in December 2015 Every day LabSuit delivers hundreds of messages between universities - as well as internally, within the same campus. Researchers ask questions about chemicals, buffers,
