We have found that bar c oding is good but it is never 100% accurate. Our process goes as follows:

1.       Chemicals are opened in the loading dock and tag w/bar codes.

2.       Then are they are delivered to the users or stock areas

3.       The users woul d scan their badge when they start using the container at their lab locations

4.       When they are done, they would put the bar code in another container so that we can cancel out the chemical as used.

We fortunately use Chemi co Mays for chemical inventory. It does however, requires bar code readers in every lab or zones.

We use CisPro for our inventory management. It is very easy to use; however the initial set up can be a bit of work. You must input everything, but the more detail you do at this point, the easier your job is down the road.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Inventory bar coding

We are interested in a  bar-coding system for Bio logy and chemical supply inventory and related.

 I would appreciate any input, pros and cons and any suggestions of systems you may be using.

Thank you,
