SampleNavigator can work with all kind of labels, in a very practical way.
People cannot read barcodes
It is obvious, most people cannot read barcodes.Fot people to select the right tube, you need more information on your empty tubes than just a data-matrix barcode.
With SampleNavigator you can define your own labels. If you only want the number of a subject, you can print it. If you also want the first name, birth data, your own special research code, you can print it.
Often is forgotten that you also need to print labels for the boxes in which you send the empty tubes. In SampleNavigator you just add it to your research structure.
For more information download our Clinical Trial Example (PDF). In this document we explain how to set up the research structure, your own datasets, attributes and the labels and integrate them in a very flexible, extendable work processes.
SampleNavigator has a very flexible, powerfull label-system and it is not restricted to barcodes on labels.
You can create label templates, as many as you want and include elements and printer control information in the label template data.
Data element names
Each data-element in SampleNavigator has a name, you can use that name to include it in a label. You are not restricted to the fixed data-elements of SampleNavigator, you can define your own data-elements. In SampleNavigator you do that by using attributes.
Multiple Label Printers
In SampleNavigator you are not restricted to the use of just one label printer. To facilitate testing you can use your normal printer to test the labels and of course to print lists of samples in the format you want.
Integrated in work-processes
The advanced architecture of SampleNavigator assures that label printing is just another action in a work-process. So you can include the printing of labels at the right moment. There are no restrictions, you do not have to scan first, before you can print a label.
