This webinar continues the PSDI webinar series, in this webinar representatives from PSDI Partner the Henry Royce Institute present their Ampletracks sample tracking system.

This webinar will be presented by Stavrina Dimosthenous (Henry Royce Institute) and Ben Jefferson.


Ampletracks is a configurable web-app built, originally, for sample tracking in and out of laboratory environments. In this talk, we will discuss Ampletracks in brief, and why and how we built Ampletracks. We will demonstrate Ampletracks implemented for a materials science audience. We will demonstrate the ‘User’ workflow, and Ampletracks features across the multiple ways to register a sample record, and intrinsic (like record type) and extrinsic (unlike record type) relationships between records. We will then demonstrate how to set different permission profiles for users, and ‘superuser’ permissions. To finish, we will briefly discuss other domains to apply Ampletracks, and how we use Ampletracks to track the development of Ampletracks.

The pathfinders aim to focus development in strategic areas with the aim to explore and establish exemplar systems that can be brought under the PSDI umbrella and act as templates for future phases of the project.
