Lab instruments and devices are used on a daily basis in almost every workflow in the lab. These devices take care of analyzing, storing, and handling samples and allow you to collect data during experiment execution. It is crucial to fully track any event that occurs during an experiment and be aware of those events when the need arises. eLabNext supports an open device connectivity protocol to connect any lab devices directly to our products. Solve the overhead of collecting data from each device separately, archive device log files automatically, and monitor and control lab devices from behind your computer.
Instruments that measure samples generate digital data. Storing and analyzing these data in a traceable manner can be labor-intensive, as data from every experiment usually need to be collected manually and separately from each lab device. By connecting lab instruments to eLabNext products, all data recorded by lab devices are automatically linked to the associated experiment, thereby saving your team time and effort.
Be in control of your experiments and monitor devices in real-time even when you are out of the lab. Access your lab device from anywhere in the world to see how cultures are growing. Be notified automatically in case of an alarm or when growth conditions alter. Easily control or change growth conditions during the course of experiments from outside of the lab. Bring lab devices to life and let them communicate the information that is relevant to your experiment setup.
Connect devices to eLabNext products to automatically receive and store log files of those devices as they are generated during your experiment. Retrieve and verify the exact experiment conditions of a device during an experiment. According to GLP compliance, logs are received and associated with the corresponding experiment.
eLabNext products have a device-connecting API that is based on an open standard. End-users can connect lab equipment themselves by linking their devices to the API. See below for an example of how Eppendorf Devices are able to connect to eLabJournal.
