  • Suggested Tablet for Core facility

    I work in a Core DNA sequencing lab and wondered if anyone has incorporated use of a tablet into their day-to-day work? If so, what type of tablet seemed to work best, what kind of qualities were you looking for?

    What else do you need to connect to/use?

    If you are in a windows-based shop then most new windows tablets (which can be joined to the domain if administration/security is a consideration) with full windows (not RT) would work. If you are worried about spilling stuff toughpads from Panasonic may be a good albeit expensive option.

      I think the main connector is going to be a barcode scanner to track lot numbers so I don't think it even needs to be that large. I will look at toughpads, thanks.

        My question about the connections was in terms of websites/programs (LIMS) etc. that you need/plan to use.

        Some tablets have a scanner built in or for you could use the camera as a 1D barcode scanner (not sure if it will do 2D).

            We use Microsoft Surface tablets. They're powerful enough to do pretty much anything we'll need to do at the lab bench, they have good connectivity, and ease of use and application support is also good. You can use barcode scanning software (although we don't) for scanning any type of barcode via the camera. You can also plug in a USB or bluetooth barcode scanner, if that suits better.
