Increasing Productivity With Electronic Laboratory Notebooks

Selection, Implementation and Strategies for Compliance


Order Button

Electronic Lab Notebooks are rapidly replacing conventional paper note books. They are expected to increase lab efficiency and help to protect IP. The real advantage comes from better sharing data within the laboratory, but also across the enterprise. There are many notebooks on the market with prices ranging from a couple hundred dollars to the 10 or hundred fold. And most of them sooner or later will be used in FDA regulated environments. So industry is unsure what to buy and how to use the in regulated environments.

Key Questions related electronic laboratory notebooks are:

  • What types of note books are on the market?
  • How should we select such notebooks: price, functionality, vendor reputation?
  • How can we get the most productivity gains through ELNs?
  • We have notebooks, but want to use them for FDA work, what should we do?
  • How can we use ELNs to share information across departments and the enterprise?
  • Are there any FDA specific requirements for ELNs
  • How to validate ELNs?
  • Should ELNs comply with Part 11?
  • How can we make existing ELNs compliant?
  • Which laboratory records do we have to keep?
  • For how long should we keep electronic records?

How does the audio seminar help:

Answers will be presented by Dr. Ludwig Huber in a new interactive audio seminar. During the seminar, the speaker will present strategies and give practical recommendations. After the seminar, an extensive list of reference material like SOPs, templates and examples will help immediate and cost effective implementation.

During the interactive presentation you learn about:

  • Benefits of Electronic Lab Notebooks (ELNs)
  • Applications of ELNs in different departments
  • Selection criteria for specific applications or departments
  • Legal requirements for laboratory notebooks
  • FDA requirements for ELNs
  • Requirements for e-record keeping
  • Approach for validation of ELN systems
  • Writing specifications for ELN
  • Installation and testing for initial and on-going use
  • Implementing Part 11 requirements for existing ELNs
  • Preparing an ELN System for an FDA inspection
  • Integrating laboratory notebooks with other systems
  • The ultimate benefit: Sharing information across departments and sites
  • The future of ELN's
