Planning and Implementation of an ELN Application

LabAnswer is a market leader in the planning and implementation of Electronic Laboratory Notebooks (ELN) and Laboratory Execution Systems (LES). ELNs have become increasingly vital for companies operating in highly regulated and IP-rich environments. We understand that an ELN’s experiment templates become the embodiment of the end user’s daily workflows, and their importance with respect to securing end user adoption and overall system effectiveness. 

Research ELN’s enhance researcher productivity, reduce experimental duplication, and provide a vehicle for securing a company’s Intellectual Property. LES ELN’s provide an automated mechanism for harmonizing test methods and ensuring that their execution supports regulatory compliance for GxP operations.

In order to achieve maximum value, a successful ELN project first requires the ability to discern which product type best meets the needs of your particular laboratory environment, and to select the appropriate vendor. Once a platform is selected, a successful deployment requires resources that have a solid foundation in laboratory informatics and first-hand experience with ELN implementation.
