In my experience, eLABJournal has been a great help in organizing our data and products. This software is very user-friendly and very professional to use both for students and researchers.
Thanks to eLABJournal, FOx Biosystems is able to accurately and efficiently manage all generated laboratory research data. The user-friendly and straightforward Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) software enables us to centralize orders, collect and track sample information, make reservations for our devices and generate protocols. Implementation of eLABJournal within FOx Biosystems went very fluently, since everything is accessible with only a few clicks. We can strongly recommend the use of eLABJournal to other companies and academic institutions, since they will benefit from all its advantages.
eLABJournal combined our various projects into one, was amazingly fast to implement, and managed the storage and retrieval of samples using the eLABInventory function.
eLABJournal is the cornerstone of our documentation processes. We use it to document experiments and protocols, manage biological samples, organize our -80 freezer, print labels, and even order consumables—essentially using all of the features it offers. Clean documentation is the basis for reproducible research and progress in commercial R&D.
Thanks to eLABJournal, we managed in just 3 months to organize the documentation of our R&D for four different projects. Experiments stay with excellent inner division, easy to cross-reference and faster to fill out, compared to our previous organization. The procedure section helped us in organizing our protocols and finding its weak spot for someone who should read them for the first time. However, the cherry on the top for our researchers is Sample documentation which is extremely useful, especially since we work in physically separated laboratories across the city and with a different working hour, and with the production up to 100 samples of a different kind per week. It helps us to track down not only details about each sample but to easily find out which was the parental sample.
eLABJournal allows our team to work closely together on one platform with the possibility to store and share any information without losing context. In addition with eLABJournal we can manage all experiments easily but never lose flexibility.
We have been using eLAB for about 6 months now and it has greatly improved our organization and efficiency. My favorite part is having the COA and QC documents pertaining to each individual antibody/protein all in one place. Shortly our company will be kicking off a 1,250 patient clinical trial and eLAB is going to be an integral part of managing the study. eLAB is very customizatable and capable of meeting many different needs, I’m sure that with continued use we will discover even more features that will help improve our workflow. Additionally, the eLAB team is incredibly responsive and easy to work with. Thanks for the help getting us going and answering all of our questions.
Before purchasing eLABJournal, all research experiments were documented in lab notebooks with much time spent copying and pasting results into the notebooks. It was impossible to put all of the results in the notebooks as there were so many electronic data. Since we have gotten eLABJournal, all research experiments are documented electronically with the ability to append all of the electronic data associated with the experiments. This has been a game-changer for us in terms of saving time but also it has increased productivity as it allows us to easily search the database using keywords for any experiment written. In addition to the ease of using eLABJournal, the eLAB customer support group is incredibly responsive with any questions we have.
eLABJournal has made the set-up of our laboratory very easy. It gives us the tools to organize the laboratory and share our projects and data.
eLABInventory gives us full insight and control over all our used cell lines, plasmids and their history. Tracking down if a cell line is recently tested for mycoplasm before sending to a collaborating scientist is easy with eLABInventory, every time it gives me the confidence that I am in control over the quality of our work.
