E-LABNOTEBOOK ENTERPRISE FROM CAMBRIDGESOFT
David Spender, Michael Swartz; CambridgeSoft Corp., Winchester, UK
The E-Lab Notebook is designed specifically to help chemists keep track of lab work in a fully searchable electronic environment. The principal functions of the notebook are to store collections of organic reactions, to perform stoichiometric calculations, and to track other related data such as laboratory procedures and spectra. Users can enter reactions, incorporate pertinent MS Office documents, and then search this data by text and substructure.
The E-Lab Notebook allows scientists to organize their notebook pages at either the personal level as a stand-alone desktop application, or throughout groups or enterprises as a client-server application. Electronic pages can be easily organized by therapeutic areas, projects, or as needed. Since enterprise groups can organize their notebook pages in a single data repository, colleagues can take advantage of each other's work when designing new experiments or analyzing their results. E-Lab Notebook is designed to work with industry leading database engines, such as Oracle (for small groups to large-scale enterprises) and Microsoft Access (for individuals or small groups). This ensures that the integrity of data is maintained using robust, secure systems.
