Symyx Technologies has released its Symyx Notebook - a new, enterprise electronic laboratory notebook (ELN) that is configurable to meet the needs of biologists and analytical chemists out-of-the-box. Symyx Notebook simplifies laboratory operations and lowers costs by enabling R&D organisations to replace multiple discipline-specific ELNs with a single, multi-discipline application that is deployable across the enterprise. Symyx Notebook gives project teams the freedom to experiment with confidence in a collaborative research environment. Symyx Notebook has the following features:

  • Full Software Developer Kit permitting rapid creation of custom¬†functionality and extensions including incorporation of third-party¬†software
  • Searching and browsing enabled via full-text searching of data-entry forms, experiments, embedded files and annotations; Boolean searching of data-entry forms quickly narrows result sets
  • Consistency and streamlined editing of experiments with ability to create different experiment templates spanning multiple scientific disciplines; ability to drag-and-drop files and annotate experimental data and images
  • Single application to deploy and maintain significantly minimises IT setup while facilitating systems management and integration; new functionality and third-party add-ins automatically downloaded from the server when needed
  • Citrix compatibility eliminating need to install application on researchers' desktops, facilitating remote access and enabling operation¬†with Microsoft Windows, Mac OS and Linux operating systems

Symyx Notebook uses the Symyx Vault document management platform. Symyx Vault supports document browsing and searching, 21CFR11-compliant electronic signatures and audit trails, enterprise-level security and configurable, highly flexible document workflows with secure versioning for single- and multi-site deployments of all sizes.
