Equipment Logbook for Enhanced Tracking and Error Reduction

A comprehensive equipment logbook is essential for any laboratory. Auditors expect a complete record of equipment events and a usage log of where and when the equipment was used.

SciCord’s Equipment Logbook solution replaces paper or spreadsheet asset inventories for enhanced tracking and reduced errors.

The Need for Compliance and Efficiency in the Lab

SciCord leverages a spreadsheet paradigm to offer you the best no-code engine on the market and provide rapid implementations and minimal ongoing overhead. Our customers see at least 30% efficiency improvement.

SciCord provides a comprehensive Equipment Logbook that ensures Check Events and Alerta, Data Integrity, and Error Reduction. A package like this is a must-have or compliant pharmaceutical laboratories.

Check Events and Alerts

Electronically document equipment/instrument inventory. Record daily checks and alert users if they attempt to use the equipment before the check is performed.

Data Integrity

Record instrument maintenance and attach vendor documentation.
Automatically link equipment use with the logbook to quickly identify instrument usage.

Error Reduction

Reduce the risk of manual error in labeling, recording, and handling equipment to minimize the chances of misidentification or improper result recording. Equipment data is recorded without fear of manual transcription errors.

Equipment Logbook Entries

Equipment can be quickly logged into the system using our predefined equipment types – such as balance, pH meter, etc. These types can be customized or expanded with additional types that are relevant for your lab and capture all of the vital information.

Each type has a predefined set of attributes for things like Asset ID or calibration info. These can be changed based on what data the lab needs to store, to do additional things like keep links to third party asset management systems.

All equipment types also have access to the connection string module (for connecting to IP or Serial instruments and directly reading data) and the Next check module for ensuring that the equipment is not used if there is a pending check (such as for daily balance checks). Direct connection ensures that accurate data is transferred from the piece of equipment to the appropriate location in a workbook.

Logbook Documents

For equipment that requires more in-depth logging, a specific Equipment logbook document can be assigned to the piece of equipment and base attributes brought in automatically.


Track maintenance events, such as cleaning or calibration, in the equipment logbook document. Upcoming events can be scheduled and then marked as completed as they are performed. If performed by a vendor, certificates can be uploaded as an attachment.

Check Event

For equipment that needs detailed check event tracking, such as a balance, a dedicated page can be provided to track each day’s check based on specified check weights. This synchronizes with other documents in the system to ensure the equipment can’t be used before it is checked.

The documents where the equipment is used will also be tracked to provide quick usage logs of each instrument.

What Our Users Say


Don’t take our word for it. We exceed our client’s demands everyday to make their research and discovery process simpler and more efficient.

“Not a day goes by where I don’t reflect on how much easier your system makes this job.”
“We have been audited by FDA twice and they had no concerns about the system nor any findings.”
– Deb Carr, Director, IPD
“The implementation was quite smooth. The team came onsite and worked in parallel with our IT team.”
“Really cool to have data and CofA in the same system. I’ve used other solutions which require access to multiple systems to get the full picture.”
– Radu Mihaila, Director CMC at GBT & Pfizer
“[After sales support is] consistently excellent. They respond quickly, investigate thoroughly, and they can explain everything in a way that we understand and can convey.”
“My experience with the entire team (US & Europe) has been amazing. They are just a phone call away. My work has never suffered because of the lack of the support from their team.”
-Indu Chowdhary, PhD
“In a head to head competition, SciCord was 3x more efficient at documenting a typical work process than [competition]. A complete ‘Assay’ work process required 60 minutes in [competition], while only 20 minutes in SciCord!”
“Very impressed with the Demo. We actually had a call with another vendor just after your demo and they didn’t have half of the capabilities that SciCord was able to show.”
“We can scale our production up to 40% thanks to [SciCord].”
“Other LIMS systems are more challenging to implement”
– Radu Mihaila, Director CMC at GBT & Pfizer
