Integrate any software tool you use in your ELN

For a seamless integration of viewing or editing files linked in your electronic lab journal, install the eLabJournal add-on: eLabWebEdit.

eLabWebedit automatically downloads the file to your computer and opens the associated program with it. When you are finished, save the file and eLabWebEdit will upload it back to the experiment that the file is associated with within the ELN.

In eLabJournal, the file will be stored as a new file version thereby maintaining data integrity according to GLP compliance. You can now focus on your work instead of having to manually ensure you have the correct version of the file saved.

You may also link files from local computers or servers with the External File Link add-on.

Joseph Green, Senior Laboratory Technologist, BRAINBox Solutions, Inc.

“We have been using eLabJournal for about 6 months now and it has greatly improved our organization and efficiency. My favorite part is having the COA and QC documents pertaining to each individual antibody/protein all in one place. Shortly our company will be kicking off a 1,250 patient clinical trial and eLabJournal is going to be an integral part of managing the study. eLabJournal is very customizable and capable of meeting many different needs, I’m sure that with continued use we will discover even more features that will help improve our workflow. Additionally, the eLabNext team is incredibly responsive and easy to work with. Thanks for the help getting us going and answering all of our questions.”


Dr. Guillermo Gomez and Dr Mariana Oksdath Mansilla, Tissue Architecture and Organ Function Laboratory, Centre for Cancer Biology

“eLabJournal has greatly facilitated our work and the close following up and easy back-and-forward of long-term experiments and the storage, in a very versatile way, of all the information that is required for the setup of highly reproducible protocols. It also has allowed us to link and maximize our resources because of the inventory function, so no more waste of time locating samples! It also permits very easy to link all types of data associated with an experiment/study either alone or in collaborations in a single hot spot. This has been working wonderful and it has been a great investment for a newly set up laboratory as is ours.”
