To assist with rapid inventory and weighing of seed stocks, we've developed an application to inventory and weigh barcoded seed samples. Inventory uses an Elane USB Scale to quickly weigh and categorize samples. In addition to Box and Sample ID, a timestamp and the name of the inventory person are also collected. Data is exported to a text file ready to be uploaded to a database.
Inventory is compatible with most Android phones and tablets. The app can be installed by downloading from the Play Store. Alternatively, the .apk can be installed by moving the file to the tablet memory, allowing installations from non-Market apps, and opening the .apk file. Information about the hardware we use can be found here. Inventory is free software released under the GNU/GPL2 License.
