Mobile App

eLabNext’s Mobile App was designed to help you work efficiently with your electronic lab notebook through your smartphone or tablet. Our Mobile App is an extension to the web application. No need to carry your notebook to the lab anymore. Draft your experiment in the comfort of your office and take to the lab only what you really need. Be more efficient when accessing experiments, samples, or protocols, or take notes and pictures to track your results.

Electronic Lab Notebook

With the Mobile App, you have access to your data on your smartphone or tablet. Navigate your projects, studies, and experiments to access your data. Browse through experiments sections to find the information you need. All data is intuitively visualized and provides direct links to all associated sample information in your ELN.

Activity Stream

With the activity screen, you have a chronological list of the most recent events or actions. In the Scan History, you can access your scanned items, open samples, or make equipment bookings.

Accessing Lab Protocols

Use our Mobile App to access personal protocols or SOP’s set up in the WebApp. Protocols shared in the group or even procedures shared within your organization can be accessed on your mobile device. Change the experimental settings in dynamic protocols to customize your protocol in a few clicks and execute the experimental procedure step-by-step, according to the desired experimental settings.

Inventory Barcode Scanning

With the camera on your mobile device, you can scan barcodes of samples, sample series, storage compartments, and equipment. Retrieve and display all information of samples directly on your mobile device. Samples can be archived or moved to another compartment directly with your mobile device.

Device Booking

Scan the 2D barcode of all lab equipment to view existing bookings made by your colleagues or to reserve a device in the lab.

Syncing Images and Notes

Take notes and pictures and sync them from your Mobile Device to the WebApp. Access your notes or images and associate them to experiments in your Electronic Lab Notebook.

Enhance Security with Two-Step Verification

Add an additional layer of security to your account with two-step verification, also known as 2-factor authentication (2FA). Activating two-step verification with the Mobile App requires the entry of an additional 6-digit code after login with username and password. After activating, a code that changes every minute is generated on the Mobile App. This means that even when a password is exposed by a key logger or obtained from a hacked site, the two-step verification secures your account with the two-factor code that can only be generated from your mobile device. To make two-step verification easy to use, you will receive a push message to confirm your login request with the Mobile App.

Always be up-to-date and informed about important events in the lab. Aside from receiving notifications in the Mobile App about new system updates, you will be notified when signing or counter-signing of experiments is requested and when samples or consumables in the lab inventory are running low in stock.
