Standardize & Automate your Lab with Scispot’s Labflows

Every life science company juggles numerous projects, protocols, experiments, material lists, databases, and notes. As scientists and lab operators hop in between various tabs, files, and platforms, human error can only be avoided by workflow standardization. Lab workflow standardization and lab automation have served to eliminate dysfunctional workflows. Standardization of protocols and standard operating procedures is key to streamlining and easily updating your workflows, all while ensuring regulatory compliance.

Standardize life science R&D

With Scispot’s Labflows (aka Templates), you can easily build templates for repeatable and reusable protocols, experiments, and workflows. Scispot offers dozens of ready-made editable templates of scientific techniques, such as multi-omics, flow cytometry, in vivo studies, bioprocessing, etc. while also allowing you to create and execute your own templates from scratch while maintaining full version history and audit trail.

Each template contains your task objective,  procedures, needed materials (e.g., inventory, samples, equipment, and animals, etc.) preparation and results tables, all in one place. You can also take notes about the procedural steps within the template to better capture protocol deviations and metadata and make your tasks reproducible.  

Scale up lab operations
As your company grows, the number of procedures you have will expand in turn, making it harder to keep track of when to do what procedure. By using Labflows, you can order procedures to design experiments, and subsequently create entire workflows by ordering your experiments. Updating this workflow is a breeze, as changes to your procedure and experiment order can be done with a simple drag and drop. As easy it is to update your protocols, undoing changes that you have made is even easier. Labflows version history guarantees never losing your old protocols.

By storing and organizing all of your procedures, experiments, workflows, and even notes all in one platform, you can easily access, update your workflows, saving hours of time.

What’s a Rich Text element?

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.
