The data matrix code is read using a barcode scanner; the corresponding ID is transferred and then saved in your digital laboratory notebook, for example, the eLabNext software.
All saved data are combined with the sample ID and their respective sample description. SafeCode is available for a series of cryostorage vials and for 5 mL, 15 mL, and 50 mL tubes. What about documentation?
For the purpose of certification and documentation, more and more users must save and retain all information. For vials with SafeCode, we make the information that is relevant to your process documentation available online in a “dataport”. Using the respective individual code of the vial, you can retrieve the following information here:
- Lot number
- Order number
This information can be exported manually to local databases, or it can be transferred automatically to sample management software – for example, Eppendorf eLabNext.
