Optimise sample management process
The Shangaris Group encountered obstacles in managing a growing volume of research samples, as they needed a comprehensive digital lab management system. This led to difficulty tracking the samples, creating additional work for the team. An Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) that offered ease of use and security was a top priority. Additionally, the team sought to integrate barcode scanners to streamline the scanning process while complying with GDPR.
A user-friendly platform and integrated barcode scanners make sample storage easy
When the Rutepo project commenced, the group identified eLabJournal, an Electronic Lab Notebook with a user-friendly interface and unparalleled security measures, as the ideal platform for tracking their project’s samples. By implementing this new tool, the team has streamlined their sample management process and can confidently ensure GDPR compliance through a complete audit trail. The integration of eLabJournal into their lab workflow was seamless and took only an hour, thanks to its smooth integration.
Before implementing eLabJournal, other methods were not explored, and this decision seemed to have paid off, given the notable advancements in productivity and data integrity observed.Dr Panicos Shangaris
