ArxLab Notebook - ELN

Web-based Electronic Laboratory Notebook (ELN) and Workflow for Chemistry and Biology

The ArxLab® Electronic Laboratory Notebook and cloud-based suite of applications is a fully integrated data management platform for collaborative research across internal and external partners.

The Arxspan ELN is an out of the box, web-based solution that allows scientists to:

  • Keep a record of everything that happens in the lab
  • Generate innovative ideas and design experiments to test those ideas
  • Record and track development of intellectual property
  • Work with multiple global external CRO partners
  • Request, manage and prioritize all ongoing projects within an organization with ArxLab Workflow

Arxspan’s products are 100% web-based commercial off the shelf (COTS) applications used as enterprise-wide data management and collaboration solutions. The platform provides the opportunity to manage all aspects of laboratory process and workflow in a single system without the need for any custom code.

Centrally Manage all Research Activities

  • Securely store data in one central repository
  • Easily access integrated cross-study, experiment, assay, compound or material data, without the need for time-intensive data processing

Collaborate Better across Internal and External Partners

  • Share knowledge across the entire organization
  • Work with multiple global external CRO partners
  • Seamlessly share information and request assays from outside partners

Deploy ELN globally in minutes

  • Deployment in the private, secure Arxspan Cloud environment eliminates costly hardware acquisition, maintenance and IT overhead

Make more informed scientific decisions based on data drawn from across the entire suite of ArxLab products

  • Use ArxLab Search’s Decision Support Tool to visualize and act on the centralized data
