Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) for R&D


Notes is the function you need if you need to create a very quick note on what you did on a particular day.

Read documentation


Research and development, or R&D for short, are companies and governments who undertake extensive innovation activities in order to create or improve existing products and services. Typically, it includes the activities that companies undertake to innovate and introduce new products and services to the market. This is often referred to as the initial phase of the product development process.

The focus of research and development is usually on innovations and proof of concepts. A small set of samples is usually conducted by researchers, using different methods to accomplish this. As long as the data generated by researchers can be replicated by other researchers and meets the regulatory requirements, there are no requirements as to what should be documented as part of research and development. Scientists would prefer that such results are captured as quickly as possible with as little effort as possible. As a result, researchers tend to document their research data in a segment of each day. In other words, they prefer to just write down what they did on one particular day. A rich text editor with support for different file types can be well suited for their needs in this case.

Labii Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) released the Notes feature in response to such requirements.

Files of any type can be inserted into notes

Insert file

Notes editor and files are incompatible. Labii enables any type of file to be inserted and previewed right inside your ELN. Additionally, you can hide the preview, open the file to make changes, and download the file.

Enhance your ELN with Labii widgets

Labii has developed hundreds of widgets to aid in your scientific research. You can perform molecular biology, ELISA data analysis, chemical structure drawing, workflow management, etc. The Labii ELN now provides native support for all of these widgets. It allows you to document your scientific research in an unlimited number of ways.

Increase document efficiency by inserting text from a section or file

There is no reason to retype when the text data is already somewhere else. With the insert text function, you can insert data from a section or external file document in seconds.

Sign and witness with your team

By signing a document in Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN), you certify that the record you generated or witnessed is accurate to the best of your knowledge. A signed document ensures that the data generated meets regulatory requirements, such as FDA 21 CFR part 11 and others can repeat the results based on the signed document. A lab notebook with signatures represents a legally valid, permanently written record of a lab’s research, which can be used in a court of law in patent investigations.
