LabWare ELN provides scientists and other laboratory personnel with the automation tools necessary to manage experiments, to properly execute tasks and to capture, preserve and safeguard intellectual property.

LabWare ELN is an experiment- and workflow-driven software application designed to give the laboratory scientist a platform to electronically document their experiments including relevant scientific content and observations, instrument results and attachments such as spectra, chromatograms and if appropriate, chemical structures.

The system works seamlessly with LabWare’s flagship product, LabWare LIMS, allowing any data within LIMS to be accessible by ELN and vice versa. Most freestanding ELN products do not integrate well with LIMS and very often require the creation of a customised interface to achieve even simple data exchange between ELN and LIMS.

The benefit of LabWare ELN is the inherently elegant interface that exists between the two systems and the simplicity by which both LIMS data and LIMS functionality can easily be shared and leveraged from within LabWare ELN. The ability to seamlessly interact with LabWare LIMS and to utilise any data or content stored in the LabWare LIMS relational database including customer-defined fields, tables or record types is at the heart of the power of LabWare ELN. As the user works in LabWare ELN, they have the ability to select relevant records from LIMS to document their experiment, such as instrumentation, standards or reagents and, of course, samples and tests. Adding samples or tests to an ELN experiment is facilitated by simple-to-use mechanisms such as ‘drag and drop’, bar code scanning the samples into ELN, or selecting the samples from a list.

Laboratories that work on GMP samples are required to follow standardised testing methods (STMs) when testing samples in the laboratory. LabWare ELN can help an organisation to avoid these inefficiencies and costs by ensuring that laboratory technicians are performing standardised test methods according to the proper sequence of steps stipulated in the SOP. LabWare ELN can associate an SOP document with an Experiment Template and, using a very straightforward tagging scheme, can then link specific steps in the SOP with sections of the experiment worksheet. Thus, as the laboratory analyst completes a given step in the procedure, the next step in the procedure can be visually presented to the user with the appropriate SOP instructions for performing that step.

LabWare ELN is a key component in LabWare’s Enterprise Laboratory Platform solution strategy which aims to deliver an integrated and scalable solution that has the functional breadth to span broad portions of its users’ business operations.
