2. Offline mode using LabCollector Stock Manager app (Only for Reagents & Supplies module)
You can find the application under Google Play. The N5000 is for professional use, thus it does not come with Google Play, so you need to download and place the application package in N5000 through USB. Once saved on your device, disconnect from the USB cable and under Menu > File Manager click on the application on the path you have saved, then the application will be installed.

This application will allow you to work offline, by scanning your Reagents and Supplies. You can declare the quantity to destock, stock or replace, and press save.
