Electronic Lab Notebooks: How ELNs are shaping R&D workflows for a more competitive future
Following up on our guide to lab information management systems (LIMS), we have released a guide to Electronic Lab notebooks.
Despite the advances in software that have pervaded other industries recently, most materials companies are using decades old ELN software. Such software is typically disliked by chemists within the company, and useful only as a historical back reference for patent and audit purposes.
