Combining features from both an electronic laboratory notebook (ELN) and laboratory information management system (LIMS), Matrix Gemini from Autoscribe provides a complete laboratory data management capability. The company states that this single unified technology returns the emphasis to identifying the needs of the lab and finding a total solution that meets those needs, rather than choosing one type of product or the other. Matrix Gemini can be configured to track all actions related to analytical methods typically used in a QC/QA environment, which involves the capture of data from balances and other laboratory instrumentation as part of the process.
