IDBS workbook chosen for biomass waste work

5 June 2013



IDBS, a provider of data management, analytics and modelling software, has announced that Netherlands-based BiChem Technology BV (BiChem) has selected E-WorkBook to support its drive to create novel processes for the production of base and specialty chemicals from biomass waste.

E-WorkBook, the IDBS electronic laboratory notebook and scientific data management platform, will support BiChem’s team by speeding up experimental data handling, ensuring knowledge is captured and secured in one place, and preventing unnecessary repetition of work.

José Rafael Hernández, BiChem's project leader for the introduction of the electronic notebook, said: 'In order to further develop, prove and commercialise technology, we required in-depth R&D and wanted a neat way to organise and handle our data.

'We chose E-WorkBook to manage experimental information electronically and to facilitate collaboration within our business. The flexibility the solution provides in terms of implementing our workflows and the ease of sharing and recalling data will allow us to realise improved outputs for our projects.'

Using E-WorkBook, BiChem can secure chemistry R&D data more efficiently than its previous paper-based methods. Calculation and workflow templates from one project can be copied and implemented into new projects, saving time and tedious duplication.

This use of templates also helps standardise research processes. Finding and integrating existing data from across the company then takes just seconds with a simple query. By implementing E-WorkBook BiChem will improve information flow across all of its projects.
