LabWare's electronic laboratory notebook (ELN) is a key component of its enterprise laboratory platform strategy. LabWare ELN provides scientists and other laboratory personnel with the automation tools necessary to manage experiments, properly execute tasks, and to capture, preserve and safeguard intellectual property. LabWare ELN is an experiment and workflow driven software application designed to give the laboratory scientist a platform to electronically document their experiments, including relevant scientific content and observations, instrument results, and attachments such as spectra, chromatograms, and chemical structures where appropriate. LabWare ELN works seamlessly with LabWare LIMS, allowing any data within the LIMS to be accessible by the ELN and vice versa. Adding samples or tests to an ELN experiment is facilitated by simple-to-use mechanisms, such as drag and drop, bar-code scanning the samples into ELN, or selecting the samples from a list.
