Top 3 Barriers and Solutions When Switching from Paper to Electronic Lab Notebook

 3 min read

Labs expressed their opinion in the recently published study “Electronic lab notebooks: can they replace paper?” that addresses the subject of electronic lab notebooks (ELNs) and whether they can replace paper in today’s digital labs. Here, we summarize key barriers to faster ELN adoption and solutions on how to tackle them, according to the findings.

sciNote can write a draft of your scientific manuscript using artificial intelligence

Do you ever get that feeling that you would like to have a magic spell to organize all your data?

And once it is organized, wouldn’t it be magnificent if there would be a software that could put together all relevant data from your projects, add some new references and present you with a manuscript draft you can build upon?

The role of electronic lab notebooks in genomic applications might be greater than expected

sciNote Team was one of the exhibitors at the qPCR dPCR and NGS Symposium in Freising, Germany. Key opinion leaders from academics and industry gather at this symposium with the aim to keep up with the trends, possibilities and latest research. Electronic lab notebooks are a right fit in the field of genomic applications, such as, quantitative RT-PCR, digital PCR and Next Generation Sequencing.

sciNote integration with Microsoft Office Online improves project management and team work

The first thing that crosses most researchers’ minds when they need to write a scientific paper, analyze results or create a presentation about their work would be opening one of the Microsoft Office programs. Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint are as much a part of everyone’s daily life and work as coffee or tea. These three programs are continuously improving, new functions are being added and the ways to use them are expanding.

Can electronic lab notebooks find their way into the healthcare industry?

Last week, sciNote was one of the exhibitors the Healthcare and Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Annual Conference & Exhibition in Orlando, Florida. HIMSS is known to be the place where once a year all the bright minds from the world of IT and Healthcare come together, observe the trends and talk business.

How to Handle Loads of Old Data When Your Lab Needs a Fresh Start?

One thing no one likes to face is opening the closets. Not necessarily the physical closets, even though there are quite a few of them packed with document folders in every lab as well. There are loads of files that have to be kept in a physical and/or digital format to meet the recordkeeping requirements. Data that is never used and questionably organized.

It Is Never Too Early To Start Using an Electronic Lab Notebook

Technology adoption should start early in the education process. The use of electronic lab notebooks for managing data, organizing work, writing reports and better collaboration can easily begin in high school and continue all the way through university and further career. Science is going digital, just like all other aspects of our lives and young generations will need to learn how to cope with growing amounts of digital data.

Webinar – Electronic Lab Notebooks under the Spotlight

Which are the main advantages of Electronic Lab Notebooks (ELNs)? Is your research data safe in the cloud? When is the Internet of Things coming to the laboratories? If you would like to get answers to these questions, we recommend you to listen to the ELNs under the Spotlight Webinar with Klemen Zupancic, PhD, CEO sciNote LLC and Jana Erjavec, PhD, Product Manager sciNote LLC.

Digital Labs of the Future

Today, we are having a brain-teasing discussion with Klemen Zupancic, CEO sciNote LLC, PhD Biomedicine.

We live in the age of artificial intelligence, internet of things, machine learning and exponential rise of new technologies. Today’s software could generate our photos from our genetic code, determine our age, sex and height from our voice, recognize the syndromes from our portraits, enable us to feel through bionic limbs, walk through the virtual reality labs and much more… while at the same time, we still write our notes on paper.

How hard is it to switch from paper to an Electronic Lab Notebook?

If you are working in the lab you would probably relate to the fact that new ideas and especially ideas about the use of new digital solutions in the lab can be a bit of an obstacle to be accepted by the rest of the team and the PI.

Today, we are having a conversation with Jana Erjavec, PhD about handling the situations when your ideas get stuck.

Managing and Saving Scientific Data: Going from Paper to Electronic Lab Notebooks and to DNA Storage

Science plays a big role in generating an ever increasing amounts of data. We are able to produce the “big data” with a single experiment. IDC reports that from 2005 to 2020, the so called digital universe will grow by a factor of 300, from 130 exabytes to 40,000 exabytes, or 40 trillion gigabytes, which is more than 5,200 gigabytes for every man, woman, and child by 2020.

Key Things to Do When Choosing an Electronic Lab Notebook

5 steps that matter most when choosing an electronic lab notebook

There is always a lag phase when new technology enters our lives. There is always the concern about its influence on our routine and whether we can rely upon it. Soon enough though, these concerns become obsolete. For example, we trustingly rely on meeting reminders on our phones and digital calendars without even thinking about it.
