Webinar: Sample tracking in Ampletracks

We would like to invite you to our upcoming webinar on 28th March 2024 at 1pm GMT – ‘Data to Knowledge’. This webinar, presented by Stavrina Dimosthenous (Henry Royce Institute) and Ben Jefferson, continues the PSDI webinar series and in this webinar representatives from PSDI Partner the Henry Royce Institute present their Ampletracks sample tracking system.

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.
