I've been using Filemaker Pro for this and several other lab type databases, 
and I find that it works great.  The database was easy to set up, and the 
final user interface/forms are easy for other less-computer oriented lab 
colleagues to use.  I found Excel would work, but required more effort on my 
part to design something that was accessible for others to easily and 
willingly use.

Just my $0.02.
