OpenFreezer Laboratory Reagent Tracking and Workflow Management System is an open-source information management system for biological laboratories.

The system tracks information on all reagents within the laboratory, including specific properties of each reagent (i.e. sequences, external identifiers), and on all the physical preparations of these reagents (storage locations, physical characteristics). Complementing this repository are workflow tools, such as primer design and automated feature mapping, making OpenFreezer a valuable tool for the bench scientist.
