Base Edition offers the essentials for effective Sample management and freezer inventory. It is for the site that operates as one group; needing a limited number of data fields, and accessing Samples and Aliquots from the same entry, search, and viewing screens.
- The parent record is the Sample, you can create an unlimited number Samples
- Each Sample can have an unlimited number of Samples assigned to it (children)
- Each Aliquot can have multiple Transactions (e.g., records reflecting work done to aliquots, aliquot transfer, etc.) assigned to it. Aliquots can have multiple Transaction records.
Freezerworks assigns a unique identifier to each Sample and Aliquot. It also assigns a “globally
unique” number to each Sample and Aliquot – a number created using an algorithm based on the serial
number so that Samples and Aliquots can be transferred between different installations of
Freezerworks and still maintain their unique identities.
Create up to 30 User Defined Fields to store valuable data on each Sample and Aliquot.
New Field Types and Field Properties
We have added more field types and properties to increase the overall functional power of Freezerworks:
Multi-Select Choice List
We’re putting more choices and more power in your hands with the Multi-Select Choice List field. Upon click, the field opens a small list box of possible choices, which you check on or off for multiple different selections.
These fields are set up like Default Values, but when triggered they become ‘read only.’ This allows you to set up automatic values that cannot be edited. In this version this feature works for records created manually and automatically.
Auto & Read Only
Required Based on Value of another Field
If you check on this field property, you can define scenarios where this field automatically requires entry before the record you’re working in can be saved. Like Default Values once again, you select another field and determine the value, values, or range of values that will make your field required.
We have added the option for Calculated Fields to be treated as hyperlinks, so that calculations that create valid webpage names can be used as such. If you check on URL Link while configuring your calculated field, a clickable icon will appear to the right of said field whenever it appears on entry forms; clicking the icon will automatically open your default browser to the designated webpage.
Powerful and flexible bar code label printing feature.
Track Aliquot lineage through sub-Aliquot feature. Excellent for cell lines and tracing the parentage of Aliquot passages over time.
Easily move boxes and racks of vials from one freezer to another with
visual drag and drop. Audit trail tracks all Aliquot movement
Batch Update small or large numbers of Samples, Aliquots, transactions and Freezer positions to correct or record changes.
A Powerful Import feature allows fast entry of Samples and associated Aliquots from spreadsheets, as well as updating existing Sample and Aliquot data.
Search and report on any number of fields.
Export Sample and Aliquot data to spreadsheets or other programs.
