LabCollector continues its road to serve you all better. We had very challenging and interesting projects that as always helped the whole community by bringing new features.
I invite you to keep exchanging with us as needed so we can keep the pace to enrich LabCollector.On a side note, if you look carefuly to the greeting card above, you can have a hint of what’s next… Have you spotted it? Keep tuned!

LABCOLLECTOR v5.3 #Tip2
LabCollector has created, improved and changed many key features just for you in its version 5.3! Every week, we will discuss some of these changes and give you a few tips on how to become more comfortable using LabCollector v5.3.
This month let’s talk about the new Reagents & Supplies management!
Here’s a reminder of the changes that version 5.3 brought to Reagents & Supplies:
- Reagents & Supplies module now has custom fields for the risks tab.
- Risks tab fields can now be exported/printed in the Reagents & Supplies export/print.
- Risks tab fields can now be used as filters.
- Chemical lots: you can now upload a file/report and associate it with a specific lot.
- Chemical lots now retain the original lot quantity.
- Option to destroy chemical lots (only users with de-stock permissions can destroy lots).

Stay tuned for more tips!

8th Symposium / AFEM 2017
(Francophone Association of Microbial Ecology) in Camaret sur Mer, France.
AT AFEM 2017 Anne-Laure Sauvadet, Head of Support & Consulting at LabCollector, gave a talk on “How to give laboratories safe and efficient scientific management tools”.
But first let’s explain what AFEM Colloquim is:
Microbiomes : from Natural Environments to Man
“The purpose of this VIIIth AFEM Symposium is to facilitate the exchange of ideas, tools, approaches, analyses, results and theories between microbiologists interested in different microbiomes and different fields of research. (bacteria and / or archaea and / or micro-eukaryotes, and their associated viruses) and to initiate or strengthen collaborations. The topics covered are intended to be very broad and aim to better describe, understand, control and value the microbial communities of the biosphere, from a fundamental point of view but also applied. Subjects will be grouped into 5 half-day sessions, each one introduced by an expert lecturer. A round table discussion dedicated to the problems of culture will close this colloquium.
Environmental microbiology in the era of “omics”
The aim is to discuss recent results obtained by conventional approaches and new technologies, in particular the omics tools (metagenomics, metatranscriptomics, metaproteomics, metabolomics but also culturomics), applied at the atomic level, the molecule, the gene, the micro-organism, the communities or the ecosystem.”
