A solution for any lab

SLAM (SQL-based Laboratory Asset Management) is a web-based tool to help research groups organize and maintain important information on their research samples.

It was designed from the ground-up to be intuitive to use and easy to modify in order to suit each lab’s unique needs. Many solutions are often too complex and cumbersome to use, while providing many unnecessary features.

SLAM is designed expressly to address these problems while using the industry-standard MySQL database system. SLAM’s innovative approach is to utilize the database not only for storage of data, but for the structure. This ensures that your data will always be easily retrievable, even by third-party utilities.

The SLAM client is Open Source and licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL). This makes it free to anyone to download, use, and modify. For more information, please check out the SLAM introduction, the installation instructions, or the easy to follow step-by-step tutorials.
