eLabJournal automatically generates a unique barcode for every sample that users create, which can printed and scanned using the Mobile App or a barcode scanner. Labs that already handle barcode-labeled samples can link their existing (external) barcodes to their sample records in eLab. When adding the sample record to the inventory, click the Link Barcode link.

Scan the external barcode of the sample you want to store into the pop-up window. After scanning the barcode, click Save to link the external barcode to the sample record.

Once the sample has been saved, the external barcode will be associated with the sample. When the sample's barcode is scanned, eLabJournal will automatically open and display the information sheet of the associated sample.
