About us

UseScience system was developed to catalogue, record and locate their kit effectively. UseScience contains laboratory equipment, ICT and specialist tools. Each item includes its specification, custodian, location,  access requirements, usage data and photos. By using UseScience organisations are able to work towards more efficiency, utilising the assets already in existence and lessening the need for duplication of material assets to become a more sustainable campus. Benefits include:

  1. Reduced need for heating and occupation of additional space within buildings for duplicated equipment
  2. Avoids unnecessary purchasing, manufacturing and shipping of products
  3. Maximises opportunity for re-use of specialist equipment locally by HEIs, industry and Small to Medium Enterprises (SME).

UseScience system is based on KIT-CATALOGUE- the open source PHP/MySQL system, based on the existing online laboratory equipment database, developed by the Centre for Engineering and Design Education at Loughborough University.
