LabWare ELN v2.0
16 January 2013
LabWare has released version 2.0 of its ELN system, a key component of the company’s Enterprise Laboratory Platform (ELP) solution strategy. According to LabWare, the ELP refers to its ability to deliver an integrated and scalable solution that has the functional breadth to span broad areas of customer business operations.
LabWare ELN is an experiment and workflow driven software application that enables customers to electronically document their experiments including relevant scientific content and observations, instrument results and attachments such as spectra and chromatograms. The product works with LabWare’s flagship product, LabWare LIMS, allowing any data within LIMS to be accessible by ELN and vice versa.
In addition to its ability to automate scientific experiments, the system also provides guided Laboratory Execution System (LES) capabilities. Laboratories that work on GMP samples are required to follow standardised testing methods (STMs) when testing samples in the laboratory. LabWare ELN helps ensure that laboratory technicians are performing STMs according to the proper sequence of steps stipulated in the standard operating procedure, improving operational efficiency and enhancing regulatory compliance.
