Shared lab challenges
One of the challenges that ABI-LAB faced was finding an easy way to coordinate reservations of tenants in their shared labs. Not having a system in place led to schedules clashing as several tenants wanted to use the same instruments at the same time.
Having oversight of available tools and equipment was extremely important thus leading ABI-LAB to search for lab management tools to ease their daily life and reduce their admin work.
To save time and get help coordinating bookings in shared labs, ABI-LAB implemented Clustermarket’s lab equipment booking system with multiple easy-to-use features.
The system helps ABI-LAB avoid any conflict between tenants as all the reservations for shared equipment are made online and visible to the lab members with access.
In addition ABI-LAB’s lab manager has a clear oversight of which instruments are being used, by whom and when. This oversight enables ABI-LAB to analyse shared equipment usage.
