Why use eCAT on your iPad or iPhone to manage freezer samples?



It's simple really.

  • You can enter information about samples anywhere in the lab
  • You no longer need to enter data by hand and later re-enter it in your computer
  • You can access information about what’s in the freezer on your iPad or iPhone when you’re at the freezer

With a couple of trivial exceptions, eCAT works on the iPad or iPhone just like it works on your computer. And since eCAT is a webapp that means you can access it through any web browser, anywhere, anytime.

That means you can access the full range of eCAT’s sample management capabilities on your iPad or iPhone.  You can create samples and aliquots, check them in and out of the freezer, monitor and record usage, search for samples and set alerts. And you can link samples to the experiments you’re recording in eCAT’s Notebook section.
