iPlanner Instrument Booking System Module
This instrument booking system module works with the Matrix Gemini LIMS. The system allows for the automatic allocation of sample-tests to the appropriate instrument within constraints which include the booking of pre-requisite tests, test order, sample availability date and instrument capacities. The plan can be viewed over desktop or browser clients. Instrument bookings are displayed on a plan which is color-coded to represent either an empty instrument, a partially used instrument, an instrument at capacity or an offline instrument. The view of the instrument plan can be expanded or compressed so that the user can view a wider or narrower date range.
