Click Open and you will see the below screen. The Application needs Office 2010 or higher and if you don’t have one download and install the Free Access Run time Environment.

The SEQOME Free Electronic Note Book consists of 6 components.
Create Project
Add Samples
Create Protocols
Add Consumables
Add Molecular Entities
Remember, the first field in Each Form is UNIQUE and marked with Red borders. So if you input the same name again you will get an error message as shown below.
duplicate field error
And Once You have Filled in the above information, you can start putting in your Experiment Data. The Experiment Name need not be unique. Details are discussed below.

Step 2: In notes section provide information about the sample.
Step 3: Provide the storage information e.g. Fridge1-Rack2-Box24-Label34
Step 4: Select a Reference date (optional)
Step 5: Leave the status as Active till you are no longer using that sample.
Step 6: Add Record
