Merck-Serono Adopts Agilent Technologies’ Electronic Lab Notebook for Biology Research
News Nov 23, 2010
While financial details were not disclosed, approximately 600 Merck-Serono biology researchers at facilities in Geneva, Darmstadt and Boston will be using the Agilent OpenLAB ELN to collaborate on research projects.
“The Agilent partnership with Merck-Serono illustrates the strength of OpenLAB ELN as a collaboration platform protecting research IP,” said Bruce von Herrmann, vice president and general manager, Agilent Software and Informatics. “It is gratifying to work with their researchers -- across multiple scientific disciplines -- with tools to build a knowledge base integrated into their overall discovery system landscape.”
OpenLAB ELN features the ability to design and customize experiment templates that enable scientists to create, share and reuse these templates. Additionally, scientists can create an experimental desktop according to their preferences and work practices.
Other benefits of OpenLAB ELN include delegation workflows and audit trails. Delegation workflows facilitate enterprise-wide collaboration, as multiple scientists can collaborate on a single experiment, entering data and results from multiple techniques on a single sample or multiple samples. The audit trails maintain an environment that delivers the highest level of intellectual property protection.
