Technology and products
eLABInventory, eLABJournal, and eLABProtocols
eLABInventory is a web-based sample tracking system (with LIMS-like features) that helps laboratories electronically track samples, consumables, chemicals, and more. In addition, the system offers tools to generate barcodes for all lab inventory, create custom sample types, and facilitate collaboration and communication between colleagues. All sample information is stored in an intuitive web application, while keeping automatic version histories of all data.
eLABJournal is a web-based electronic laboratory notebook (ELN) that helps laboratories document research data electronically in a GLP-compliant manner. In addition to ELN functionality, the system also incorporates the functionality of eLABInventory, offering tools to standardize lab protocols or standard operating procedures, keep track of samples, and facilitate collaboration and communication a between colleagues. Experiment data are digitally registered in an intuitive web application, while keeping automatic version histories of all data.
eLABProtocols is a web-based protocol management system to design protocol templates and standard operating procedures (SOPs) and is available standalone or integrated in eLABJournal.
