Get Started with Inventory 🧪
Quick links to relevant help content for getting started with RSpace Inventory, our inventory and sample management system!
Inventory API Introduction 🧪
All of the actions that can be performed through the user interface can also be performed through the API.
Add a Note to a Subsample 🧪
You might want to add notes to a subsample as a means to record observations and activity on that particular subsample.
eCAT was our original ELN with an inventory capability. We are now focused on the development of RSpace Inventory.
Import Samples into Inventory 🧪
You can bulk import your samples into Inventory by uploading a CSV file, which you can generate from Excel or Google Sheets.
Navigate Inventory 🧪
Inventory is divided into three panels: the left panel, the right panel, and a collapsible sidebar.
Create and Use Sample Templates 🧪
By creating templates from existing samples, reuse the structure of a sample for consistency.
Using Inventory Lists of Materials in the ELN 🧪
By adding Lists of Materials to documents in the ELN, you can easily associate Inventory items to experiments.
Move Samples and Containers 🧪
You can move samples and containers using the Move action. Note that moving a sample will move all of its aliquots.
Search Inventory 🧪
You can search for specific items by typing in the searchbar and hitting enter, or use the advanced search.
Create a Container 🧪
There are three types of containers: list, grid, and visual. To create a container, use the Create > Container buttons.
Create a Sample 🧪
To create a sample, use the Create > Sample buttons, then follow the creation wizard.
Link to a Sample or Container (Global ID) 🧪
The Global ID of an item can be found at the top-right when viewing the item. Clicking on the Global ID will copy a link to the item.
Customise Axis Labels for Grid Containers 🧪
You might wish to change the default axis labels of a grid container from the default.
Select Items in Inventory 🧪
Containers support various views, such as list, card, tree, grid and visual. In list view, simply use the checkboxes to select items.
Edit Locations in Visual Containers 🧪
To use and place items into visual containers, you first have to add locations to the container.
Permissions and Sharing in Inventory 🧪
Inventory has core permissions and sharing functionality, including sharing within a LabGroup, and transferring item ownership.
Toggle Inventory and Container Views 🧪
It is possible to toggle between different item views, based on which view suits your needs best or which one you prefer.
Add a File Attachment to an Inventory Item 🧪
You can attach files of any type, such as images, documents, or chemistry files to an item in Inventory.
Edit Quantities in Lists of Materials 🧪
You can easily update quantities of Inventory items as you use them up during experiments while editing an ELN document.
Use Benches in Inventory 🧪
Benches are a place for storing newly created subsamples and containers, imported subsamples, or anything else you decide to move into it.
Add a Custom Field to a Sample or Container 🧪
You might need to add additional information to a sample or container that is not available as a template field.
