The inventory management system within katmandoo allows storage of items. An Item might be a seed packet, a cutting a tube of tissue intended to be linked to a genotype. Items require a unit barcode identifier and a stocktaking application can be used to keep track of weights, quantities and storage locations of the associated items.

An initial Katmandoo installation only includes one organisation, called Unknown Organisation.
