Laboratory workflows today can be complex, and include multiple steps. Your results are important, so each step should be documented, however, documenting in notebooks or in Excel files stored on department share drives can be inefficient and create validation challenges. It is challenging to share paper notebooks with colleagues in different locations, and files stored on department shared drives can be difficult to maintain and search.
STARLIMS Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) provides a powerful, centralized electronic replacement for paper lab notebooks and other homegrown solutions used to record your lab data. Whether you are looking to capture interim result data in tables, create calculations on the fly using standard Excel formulas, add pictures and annotate, or include attachments, the Excel-like interface provides you with a flexible canvas to capture and store your data in a central repository. The ELN makes it easy to search, easy to share and maintain compliance with your organization’s record retention rules.
