Even today, many scientists still use spreadsheets or traditional notebooks to document their experiments, despite the fact that modern electronic tools are available. Laboratory instruments are now capable of tracking run and user information as well as connecting to digital lab notebooks like eLabJournal® from Eppendorf. eLabJournal allows you to document data generated, for example, by your smart multipurpose centrifuge Centrifuge 5910 Ri, in a safe and efficient manner.

This article appeared first in BioNews, Eppendorf’s customer magazine since 1993.
Documentation: a love-hate relationship
Documentation is one of the most important and, at the same time, most unpopular tasks in the laboratory. Traceable documentation of research data is essential in any laboratory, both in academia and in regulated environments such as the pharmaceutical industry. Whether data, text, or figures need to be retained for scientific publications, or for the purpose of meeting GxP/GLP standards – the most challenging aspect is typically not the data creation, but rather the manual documentation effort behind it.

Paper-based documentation – still found in many laboratories today – has the disadvantage of different aspects of the data being documented in different laboratory books (e.g. a centrifuge logbook in addition to a personal laboratory journal). These locally stored data are not accessible to every employee and from every location, and they could be lost or damaged.

Documentation: efficient and safe

Our smart Centrifuge 5910 Ri records all the details of the run that would otherwise have to be noted by hand: user, time, temperature, speed, whether the run was stopped manually, which program was used, etc. The centrifuge stores up to 1,000 of these “run records”. The option of filtering by date, user, or program makes it very easy to export only the records you need. Data are exported as either PDF or CSV file, which can subsequently be documented in the eLabJournal.
The digital lab notebook is used for easier documentation in the lab
The eLabJournal software is a fully integrated solution for data, sample, and protocol management. It helps you streamline your workflows, for example, by documenting and searching research data, tracking sample collections, and more.

eLabJournal is web-based, so you can view your data anytime, from anywhere, on any device. Do you work in a regulated environment? With eLabJournal, your lab can work in compliance with Good Laboratory Practice (GLP). Tests can be electronically signed and countersigned in accordance with FDA 21 CFR part 11, protecting them from further modification.
