Bio-ITech launches eLABHybrid:

enabling local storage of data within a Cloud ELN Solution

April 9, 2018, Groningen, The Netherlands.

Bio-ITech announces the launch of its new add-on eLABHybrid for eLABJournal®. A cloud-based Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) offers unparalleled access to your data from any device, anywhere in the world. A drawback when working with cloud-based applications, however, is that storage of large data files is limited. Besides the bottleneck of bandwidth when uploading large files, storage of large data sets in the cloud is costly. Many research laboratories generate terabytes of data, for instance with live cell imaging, genomics or proteomics research, that cannot be linked efficiently in a cloud-based ELN. A frequently used workaround for this problem is to store data files on a local server and refer to those files in the ELN. However, this solution is not compliant with 21 CFR part 11 and GxP, as files can be modified without updating the reference in the ELN.

With eLABHybrid you can overcome this problem. Install eLABHybrid on a local server and all files will automatically be stored on that local server, while your eLABJournal remains hosted in the cloud. Once the file is uploaded in the ELN, eLABHybrid and eLABJournal work seamlessly together to guarantee file authenticity without any transfer of data over the internet. eLABHybrid is a 21 CFR part 11 and GxP compliant solution. The entire audit trail of file modifications is logged automatically. eLABHybrid is available for both the eLABJournal Cloud and eLABJournal Private Cloud installation. For more information see:
