Container Manager

Container Manager is a barcode ready application of Matrix Tracker which allows full traceability of re-usable sample containers through the production / laboratory / sampling process.

By allocating each container a unique identifier and storing information, (plant, sampling point, and container type), you can ensure that only the correct containers are used when collecting samples, thereby preventing cross-contamination, mislabelling of samples and incorrect testing of samples. Container Manager also tracks which sample is held in a container providing a fall-back method of identification should sample labels be removed or damaged.

All actions are audited and container chain-of-custody is easily tracked. Container Manager is a fully configurable product with the option to include information such as maintenance dates and other customer specific fields. The product is unique in that it may be configured for both desktop and web use without the use of esoteric scripting or basic programming languages.
