Add items to the Inventory

Your Quartzy Inventory is a place where everyone in your lab can keep track of everything that belongs in it. That includes chemicals and glassware that you purchase as well as plasmids and primers you create in the lab. Keep track of everything in one central location! 

1. From the Inventory module, click Add Item


Note: If you're in multiple groups, when on the All Groups page you'll be prompted to select the Group where the item will be added.

2. Enter a general search term (product name, manufacturer #, CAS #, etc.) or a specific Vendor + Catalog Number.


3. When there is a match for the search, options will appear below. Enter the quantity that you currently have, and click Add.

4. Optionally, enter information about the item's Type, Location, and specifications. Then click Add Item.

  • The item Type will default to General Supply. Select a different Type from the list if it should be categorized differently. 
  • The item Location will not default to a selection. Select or enter a new location, if needed.


5. If you'd prefer not to use the Search feature, select Skip Lookup before searching. Or there is no match for your search, select Use Add Item Form to be directed to a blank form where all request details can be entered.

Type the name of the vendor who supplies the item you'd like to add. If the vendor has given us access to their catalog, when you type the catalog number, some fields on the form will auto-complete for you!

If the fields do not auto-complete, simply enter the details in the required fields manually. (Required fields indicated by a red asterisk *)


6. Click Add Item
