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.
BLOG FOR RESEARCHERS WHO WANT TO GO DIGITAL
In this article we will give you an overview on what HIPAA is and how electronic lab notebooks can contribute to the institution’s HIPAA compliance.
Many labs today are facing the dilemma between a cloud server and a dedicated private server to store the valuable research data. In this article, we gathered useful thoughts and facts to calm your concerns.
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.
Have you ever had to prepare the full set of documentation for the FDA or similar inspections? How many grant proposals could you have written in that time? How can an electronic lab notebook help?
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.
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.
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.
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.
sciNote encourages scientific ingenuity, exploration and new ideas, which is why we were excited to support iGEM 2016, the premiere student team competition in Synthetic Biology. At iGEM we met the team focused on the issues we are also passionate about, the big data challenge and the potential of using DNA for data storage.
