For every sample stored in eLabJournal, a barcode must be generated, printed and scanned using the Mobile App or a barcode scanner. For labs that already handle barcode labeled samples, the existing (external) barcode can be linked to a sample. Add the sample to the inventory when arrived in the lab and click Link Barcode.

Next you have the option to scan the external barcode present on the sample you want to store. After scanning the barcode, click the appeared Save button to link the external barcode sample.

After saving the sample, the external barcode is associated with the sample. When scanning the barcode, eLabJournal will be automatically open and display the sample information sheet of the scanned barcode.
