Chain of custody can relate to many tasks within a company – from as simple as tracking a piece of paper or to a more complex chain of custody e.g. tracking the request of a compound from the dispensary, recording and following the request, the individual stages of production of the item, collection and final receipt.

With Logbook’s electronic signature and audit trail facility using Logbook to keep an electronic chronological order of the chain of custody activities gives the time and cost saving benefits to quickly find where and who is responsible for an item at any time point.

Help speed up the QC checking by using the search facility to highlight missing or out of compliance values.

Using Logbook’s form designer you can design many different chain of custody forms for different areas and functions. Make them as simple or as complex as you want.

Use Logbook to act as your electronic chemical repository. Laboratories produce many types of chemical analysis information and data – raw data (e.g. Chemical Name, Chemical formula, Synonyms, CAS Number, key properties), processed data, observations, chemical structures, graphs, images, analytical reports, conclusions, references etc.

Use Logbook to store all or some of this information and/or documents and take advantage from all the benefits holding this information electronically offers –

  • Centralise all your data electronically
  • No legibility problems
  • Tailor user security to allow specific data to be accessed outside of the department
  • Limit user’s access to read or update the information.
  • Multiple user access to the data from various places within the laboratory/country
  • Quick and powerful search capability
