Agilent Technologies Inc. has announced the release of its OpenLAB Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) version 4.1. The new version offers scientists in analytical research and development an optimized way to document and share experiments and results.

OpenLAB ELN v4.1 introduces experimental templates that enable scientists to create, share and reuse their own custom experiment views. The new flexible templates facilitate data entry by allowing scientists to view the experiment desktop as they prefer. These templates can be designed for SOP-driven processes, increasing laboratory efficiencies.

Agilent has also streamlined the analytical request workflow by reducing the number of steps between request and result. This dramatically improves lab productivity. A specific analytical module has been added for documenting analytical methods, generating sequence files and capturing results.

The new module facilitates report creation across one or more samples and techniques. Chromatograms and result files from Agilent ChemStation, Waters Empower or other chromatography data systems (CDS) can be automatically uploaded and associated with the experiment through the seamless integration with Agilent OpenLAB ECM scientific data management system. Agilent offers the complete solution.

In addition, the new delegation workflow facilitates collaboration. Multiple scientists can collaborate on a single experiment, enter data and results from multiple techniques on a single sample or multiple samples. Audit trails are maintained in an environment that delivers the highest level of intellectual property protection.

“Ideally, software helps people be more productive with very little additional thought or effort,” said Bruce von Herrmann, vice president and general manager, Agilent Software and Informatics. “This is the motivation behind the entire Agilent OpenLAB portfolio of laboratory systems.”

OpenLAB ELN is a Web-based scalable, integrated system to manage experiments and results. It is designed for multiple disciplines including analytical chemistry, synthetic/medicinal chemistry, biology and other research environments. OpenLAB ELN supports 21 CFR Part 11 requirements and is built around an open architecture.
