OpenFreezer Location Page
This module is used to track the locations and properties of all preps of reagents in the laboratory

  • Each reagent is associated with an isolate (e.g. when cloning vectors or cell lines – different colony picks) and a prep (a physical preparation of a particular isolate that is stored). For each reagent, a certain isolate is selected for downstream applications and is marked as the selected isolate. If a particular reagent does not need isolates (currently oligos), then it is marked as isolate inactive.
  • To make a new container - a user chooses a container size and a container group (e.g. Vector 96 well plate)
  • It is in the location tracker that we track isolates and preps of various reagents and designate which isolate is active. We also flag certain preps that should not be used.
