GBG Batch Planner™

Schedule Throughput in the Lab with GBG Batch Planner

GBG Batch Planner is a calendar-based plug-in for Green Button Go Automation Scheduling Software that eliminates bottlenecks in the lab and increases the use of your high-value lab equipment. Using GBG Batch Planner, multiple users can plan time-course experiments, schedule batches of plates on readers, imagers and flow cytometers.

The GBG Batch Planner builds a calendar that maps the availability of the workcell to that anyone in the lab can access to schedule their runs. The result? High-priced equipment no longer sits idle overnight and scientists don’t waste time returning to and checking the equipment's availability.
