Sample tracking and retrieval module

The sample tracking and retrieval system, AutoSTARS, provides for the capability of retrieving and tracking various samples for both initial testing and follow-up add-ons ordered by laboratory clients. Samples are stored and retained in various areas of the laboratory based on container, or lab type.

Fully integrated with the AutoLIMS advanced laboratory information system, AutoSTARS alerts laboratory personnel of tests pending for a specific sample as they scan samples for storage. This ensures that the sample is distributed to the proper department.

  • Includes the ability to print a pending work list with the rack and position of the samples therein.

  • Automatically purges racks according to client time definition.

  • Provides the ability to see the rack and position of the scanned sample in the history screen within AutoLIMS.
