Medical manufacturer invests in ELN solution
Maquet, a French manufacturer of medical products, therapies and services for operation rooms and intensive care units, has purchased the Agilent OpenLAB ELN, bundled with Surety's AbsoluteProof third-party, digital time-stamping service. The combined solution bolsters Maquet’s long-term ability to protect and legally defend the authenticity and ownership of its scientific intellectual property (IP).
Previously, to protect scientific intellectual property, Maquet personnel were regularly shuttling paper notebooks to an off-site notary office to be manually time stamped. By implementing an automated digital notarisation process, Maquet expects to streamline the efficiency and effectiveness of this process. The company says it was also seeking a tool to facilitate collaboration between research teams in France and Germany.
