Lab inventory automation is one of the most effective ways that biotech startups and scaleups can save time and improve biotech R&D workflows. Effective laboratory management is essential for ensuring that a startup’s R&D projects run smoothly and efficiently. Without proper lab inventory management, scientists can face a range of challenges, including a lack of critical resources, disorganization, and wasted time and effort. This can lead to delays in biotech R&D projects and ultimately, a failure to bring a product or service to market.
One of the biggest challenges biotech startups face when it comes to laboratory management is inventory management. Keeping track of the materials and equipment needed for experiments can be a daunting task, especially for startups that handle a large volume of materials. Furthermore, manual inventory management can be time-consuming and prone to errors, which can lead to costly mistakes and delays in experiments.
This is where Scispot's advanced lab inventory automation features come in. By automating inventory management, biotech startups and scaleups can save time and reduce the risk of errors, allowing them to focus on what really matters: making new discoveries.
Connecting Lab Inventory to Your Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN)
Scispot's advanced lab inventory automation features allow biotech startups and scaleups to create databases for their inventory using Labsheets. These Labsheets can be customized to include all relevant metadata such as threshold quantities and expiration dates, making it easier to keep track of inventory levels and ensure that materials are always available when they're needed.
But that's not all. Startups can also connect Labsheets to their Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) and integrate inventory requirements into their ELN page. This means that researchers can easily track inventory levels and manage their resources without having to switch between different applications or systems.
Email and In-App Notifications
To make sure that startups always know what's going on with their inventory, Scispot's advanced lab inventory automation features include email and in-app notifications. These notifications can be customized according to the startup's preferences, ensuring that they receive alerts when inventory levels fall below a certain threshold or when expiration dates are approaching.
Automating and Tracking Lab Inventory with Every Experiment
Startups can link lab inventory management to their experimental workflows. Inventory Automation tracks the consumables and reagents used in a particular workflow and deducts those inventory items from Labsheets, providing real-time automated updates of inventory levels. This means inventory is always up-to-date and startups are always aware of the real status of the materials they need to conduct experiments.
Connect Your Inventory with Quartzy
Scispot also integrates with Quartzy, a popular inventory management and product ordering platform. By connecting Scispot with Quartzy, biotech startups and scaleups can automatically sync their inventory levels and set up automated re-ordering, reducing the need for manual inventory ordering and making it easier to keep track of inventory levels across different systems.
When the quantity of an item goes below a specified threshold, it is automatically added to Quartzy. When an item is fulfilled from Quartzy, the new quantity of the item is automatically updated in Scispot and Scispot notifies users. This means that researchers can rest assured that their inventory levels are always accurate and they always have the materials they need to conduct experiments.
Scispot's advanced lab inventory automation features offer an integrated, user-friendly solution for startups looking to optimize their lab workflows. By automating inventory management, connecting inventory to ELNs and Quartzy, and providing email and in-app notifications, Scispot simplifies lab management and reduces the risk of costly errors. Biotech startups can focus on conducting their experiments and making new discoveries without worrying about running out of critical materials or wasting time on manual inventory management. With Scispot's advanced lab inventory automation features, startups can revolutionize their lab workflows and take their scientific research to the next level.

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
