Why Buy an ELN - The Original Electronic Lab Notebook TM?

Here are 5 good reasons to purchase LABTrack:

1. Improve Productivity

A recent independent university study shows that even in a research only environment significant productivity gains can be achieved by implementing LABTrack. The Indiana University/Purdue University study showed a 15% productivity improvement in the university pharmaceutical research lab studied. The laboratory workers studied actually spent less time at computers documenting their work and more time at the bench doing science.

A 15% productivity gain is very significant. And we believe even greater gains can be achieved in production, quality control and analytical testing laboratories since the work in these labs are more procedural driven and routine.

2. Improve Communications

Communications within an organization involving lab notebook data (such as witnessing approving, sharing results with other researchers and customers - both inside and out of the organization - and disseminating the knowledge of an out of spec result, an out of process condition or simply that the experiment is done to the appropriate person) can be speeded up and improved by LABTrack..

We like to say that with LABTrack "there is no more chasing down people and chasing down paper work. It is all at your finger tips. Each LABTrack user has access to the information they need when they need it."

Automating communications is easy with LABTrack's Subscription function. You can easily create subscriptions that will automatically send emails to the people who need to know - automatically.

3. Improve the Science

Imagine being able to quickly search and find results from experiments or procedures done weeks or even years ago. Has someone done something similar? What method did they follow? What results were generated? If it was stored in a LABTrack notebook these types of searches are easy to do. Even if that researcher no longer works for your organization - or the person is out of the laboratory. You can have the information that you need when you need it.

We believe that being able to perform searches on knowledge within your organization can only help improve the science in your laboratory. Consider for a moment all of the times that you had the feeling that someone in your organization probably had some relavent information - but you had no choice but to continue working "blind" since you didn't have access to that information.

4. Help Ensure Compliance - Regulatory and Legal

If you work in a GMP, GCP or GLP environment - following regulations is very important. Proper signing, dating, witnessing and approval are critical to meeting federal and state regulations. LABTrack's built in functions address these rules including 21 CFR Part 11 and predicate rules.

If you work in a research environment complying with legal requirements for documenting and protecting intellectual property is very important. Again the rules that ensure that your ideas can be patented and defended if necessary are built into the software.

LABTrack is designed to enforce the rules needed to meet these requirements. And the data stored in LABTrack's database is hash encoded to ensure that it will stand up in a court of law. LABTrack uses the same hashing technology that many police agencies use (such as the FBI) to prove the authenticity and accuracy of electronic evidence. Hashing has been accepted in the US courts for over 30 years and has never been rejected as a protection technique*

5. Get a very quick Return on Investment

Implementing a LABTrack system can provide a Return on Investment (ROI) in just a few short months. We have calculated that the ROI for a 10 user LABTrack Team edition can be less than 5 months! And the larger the organization the greater the savings and increase in productivity that can be achieved.
