Functionality and Superb Customer Support

5,0 há 10 meses

Comentários: Our overall experience with eLab Journal has been exceptional. We are glad we chose to partner with them because they were definitely the right choice! They have helped us immensely and we would not have achieved a successful project outcome without them.

Vantagens:

Working with the team at eLab Journal to implement our LIMS and make enhancements as our laboratory has grown has been a wonderful experience. Everyone we have worked with is responsive and collaborative. The software itself has amazing functionality and provides the features we need to act as an efficient, high throughput testing laboratory.

Desvantagens:

When we implemented the software in 2020, some of the menu items and navigation seemed disjointed and not exceptionally intuitive. eLab Journal has evolved since then and we have seen improvements. The team is also open to our feedback as system users.

Thank you for your review of eLabJournal, Maura happy to hear that you've noticed our improvements, and we always appreciate the great feedback! Since October 2021, we have implemented several new UI updates, reorganized the navigation tools, and taken a more multi-disciplinary approach to the menu items so that chemists, biologists, research techs, and lab directors can easily access their unique day-to-day workflows within the system. Stay tuned for additional major updates by 2023!

Keeping Track of the Research

5,0 mês passado Novo

Comentários: This has been a great experience. At first had only planned to use for single aspect of research project and now pushing for us to incorporate into other areas. Customer support has been excellent. Always quick to respond when have questions or requests, and so very willing to work with us to customize the system to our needs.

Vantagens:

Although there was a learning process to using the system, it did not take more than a week for us to build the framework that needed for managing samples and recording experimental data. Have multiple users with different levels of comfort with technology and hearing more and more from group that so glad that set this up for this research project. Really appreciate that Microsoft Office integrated into system, not only for editing files but as sections within a entry. This has allowed users that do not have access to office to work with us with ease

Desvantagens:

Lacking some options that know are available on other electronic notebook freeware (To Do Lists, Task assignment, Calendar, Messaging center, view only of integrating Microsoft office components, comment tracking, tags for indexing entries). One option that would love to have that seen in other electronic notebook software is the option to share study with outside user so can view (not edit) for defined period of time without using a licensed space. Would be happy if there was a limit on how many of these could exist at a time

Alternativas consideradas: Labguru

Razões para escolher o eLabJournal: Needed a inventory system that allowed better handling of aliquots and lineage. The permission management system was better for the needs of the group. And that hardly anything is every truly gone, can track history of pretty much everything.

Software anterior: Labfolder

Razões para mudar para o eLabJournal: The customer service, the rep who set up our demo provided such good information. Was impressed that during the demo period (which was a month), he not only respond well to our questions but took our feedback and entered as requests for modification of the system. Demonstrated to us that would work with us to help us use the system to fit our particular needs

Online journal

3,0 há 3 anos

Comentários: Better for the environment and also don't have to worry about losing/spilling stuff on lab notebook.

Vantagens:

Once again it allows for easy access to other lab mates by simply sharing it with them. No issues with legibility or whatever.

Desvantagens:

Takes a while getting used to actually typing in experiments, protocols, data, etc. but it can be more convenient than conventional paper.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with eLabJournal, Alex! It's common to have a period of adjustment when transitioning to a digital lab solution, which is why eLabNext assigns every client a dedicated account manager to provide consultations and additional training as needed. If you're not sure how to contact your account manager, feel free to send a message to our Support Team and they will be happy to connect you! Our goal is to have you be very comfortable in the system within 2-3 weeks, so please don't hesitate to reach out if we can help you reach this point!

eLab has helped manage a veritable flood of samples

4,0 há 2 meses

Comentários: Overall, I'm very pleased with eLab. It has greatly streamlined the tracking of sample receipt and downstream processing for thousands of samples, allowing me to set up standard procedures that even novice undergraduate students can follow without difficulty. Likewise, the pricing was very competitive and the team at eLab has been very responsive and pleasant to work with.

Vantagens:

This product has greatly facilitated the standardization of sample intake and inventory. Likewise, I really appreciate the ability to set up lab protocols (with version tracking) and standardized experiment templates. These features, in particular, make it easy to bring on new lab helpers in an undergraduate setting. There is no need to manage and track shared files or folders, and when a student leaves, their records and activities are preserved. The interface has generally been quite intuitive and easy to maneuver, and customer support is responsive and helpful if a user runs into problems.

Desvantagens:

There are still a few glitchy (largely aesthetic) areas. For example, the "Lineage" button appears to multiply as one clicks on or manipulates successive sample records. This can be resolved by refreshing the page, but it is not guaranteed that you will remain on the same sample record when you refresh. This doesn't seem to impact the integrity of sample records, but can be annoying when working with a lot of sample records. There is not yet a function to create copies of plates of samples (e.g., whole-plate aliquots, series, or downstream product). One can work around this with batch importation, but I do look forward to this feature eventually being incorporated.

Razões para mudar para o eLabJournal: eLab offered a combined electronic lab journal and inventory tracking/management platform that was both intuitive and economical.

Thank you for reviewing eLabJournal, Elizabeth! Our team worked hard to design an easy-to-use UI and we're glad to hear that those efforts have paid off for you. The latest version of our Lineage add-on resolved the glitch you mention and is available in the Marketplace please make sure to check and update the Add-On. We're also working on a bulk cloning feature for plates and hope to release it soon. Thanks again for sharing this valuable feedback so that we can improve the eLab experience for our entire user community, and stay tuned for some exciting updates!

6 month of eLAB and don't want to miss it anymore

5,0 há 12 meses

Vantagens:

We're working with several microorganisms and getting them organized into easily trackable collections are a big plus for us. In general we're using the customizable samples a lot, also for tracking individual fermentation batches. Together with the barcoding feature, tracking and identifying samples has become really straight forward. Another great feature is the collaborative approach we can use, when we work on different projects. Everybody in the team can contribute with individual experiments and still everything is organized into the same project/study, which makes tracking the overall progress really easy.

Desvantagens:

One of the things that certainly need some improvement is the data-management system. You can store data within experiments and in a dedicated file-storage system, but these are not interconnected (at least not that I know). And to work with the file-storage is also not the most straight forward way to organize your files. A little more database management functionality here could go a long way.

Alternativas consideradas: Labfolder

Razões para mudar para o eLabJournal: Labfolder has a very bad reputation for being rather slow and most importantly unstable.

Resposta do eLabNext

há 4 semanas

We appreciate this feedback on the data management system, Bastian. Our team has created different options for File Management, i.e the eLabHybrid solution, however, we do realize that these days, the need is very different for large volume data creation, connection, and analysis. Because of this, we are actively considering options for adding new utilities to File Storage, as well as unified file management solutions. Your comment is heard loud and clear! Feel free to reach out to our Support Team if you would like to offer specific recommendations for us to consider - much of our product development is customer-driven, so your input will help us to provide software that improves the experience for the entire eLab community!

eLABJournal improves your data management

5,0 há 3 anos

Comentários: My overall experience with eLABJournal is very positive. It definitely improves my data management and it has a lot of benefits when you collaborate with colleagues and students. I definitely recommend this to any wet-lab scientist!

Vantagens:

Having worked with eLabjournal for nearly 3 year, I definitely learned to appreciate its overall function for data management. You collect everything (e.g. data, protocol, notes, analysis, conclusions) in one software and you have everything accessible with a few clicks. Furthermore, I enjoy the Inventory a lot, as I can easily find back all my samples quickly.

Desvantagens:

As with any new system, in the beginning it takes some time to get used to the navigation in eLabjournal. Logically also the structure is different than in a "diary-like" hard-copy lab book.

Resposta do eLabNext

Katharina, thank you for reviewing eLabJournal - we appreciate your commitment to the platform and hope to continue being your one-stop shop for digital lab tools in the coming years! The structure of eLabJournal was designed as a 3-tiered project management-style workflow to encourage standardization and organization within your lab records, from Project to Study to Experiment/Report. We're glad that you have gotten used to it, but we'd love to know how we can make the learning curve shorter! If you have additional suggestions for how to improve the platform, feel free to reach out to your Key Account Manager to share your thoughts! As always, the HELP section on our website is there to assist you as well.

eLabJournal helps to established a better workflow and standarised the lab work

5,0 ano passado

Vantagens:

Integration of the system is the daily work at the company has been decently easy. It takes a bit of time to make the transition but once it is in place, every step of the lab day becomes much mechanical and you are always sure that all the data is trackable and well organized. Samples, materials used, materials generated, protocols, and calculations are always available and referencable which allows higher performance and efficiency of the workers.

Desvantagens:

It is not too flexible in terms of moving through the steps, you always have to save before you move on even if you are inside the same experiment. It would be nice if in the supplies- orders it could reference a PO number or integrate the items in shopping batches.

Thanks for this great feedback, Marta. The extra save steps you mention are actually what allow eLabJournal to capture fully-compliant audit trails with a level of detail and roll-back precision exceeding that of our competitors in a fully GxP Compliant environment. A few extra clicks means a higher level of integrity and trust in the data that you collect, so we hope you agree that makes it a worthwhile trade-off! We also have some exciting new features in the works for our Supplies module, so stayed tuned to our website for more information in the coming months!

eLJ strongly increases productivity, some room for improvement

4,0 há 3 anos

Comentários: We use eLJ in quasi-GLP mode, with witnessing and a strict SOP for documenting. Overall very high improvement in productivity since we introduced it.

Vantagens:

- traceability of data, search function, easy to do forensics on what went wrong in an experiment - clear structure into projects, studies and experiments - basic functionality very easy to use, reliable - much faster than paper lab journal - collaboration of scientists across different locations

Desvantagens:

- some functions cumbersome to use, e.g. bulk imports and especially exports of inventory or products - picture editing function very rudimentary, hardly usable - moving of experiments between projects or studies cumbersome

Resposta do eLabNext

Thank you for sharing your eLabJournal experience, Lorenzo. We are happy to hear that the platform boosted your lab's productivity! With regards to image editing, do you have a preferred image editor installed on your computer? The eLabWebEdit application allows you to open items in a File Attachment section for editing with your computer's local software and uploads the finished file back to eLab; this enables you to maintain an unbroken audit trail within the platform, so it may be worth exploring further if you prefer other image editing software. Please also consider getting in touch with your Key Account Manager to provide more detailed feedback on moving experiments, as this will help us to incorporate your recommendations in our next series of updates to the system! We appreciate your input, and look forward to working with you!

ELN and more

4,0 há 2 meses Novo

Comentários: This software caters to the small biotech co's by providing a single solution ELN that integrates data and inventory management. As such, the pricing is in an very effective position to enable those same small biotech companies to acquire and use their software efficiently. Great customer support and service, this offers an appreciable and competitive value. This software is very good and taking in data, especially as a PDFs. Probably among one of the best ELNs out there. Unfortunately it's not a 'do-everything' solution, and does have some quirks. It would also better help these smaller co's that use it through implementing a less expensive 'module' add-in service that could pull from vendors like Fisher/VWR. This would allow for easier inventory management, and wouldn't require expensive custom solutions smaller companies wouldn't be able to afford anyway.

Vantagens:

The ELN is easy to start using from ground zero. Many features are intuitive, and easy to navigate. Organization is implemented nicely, and searchable.

Desvantagens:

Frequent users will start to see issues with flexibility in correcting erroneous details of entries (not yet finalized), or setting up high-functioning templates for repeated experiments. More advanced features to integrate into ordering/inventory management are not modular add-ons, and treated as more expensive custom solutions.

More than just documentation

5,0 há 12 meses

Comentários: Elabjournal enforces high-quality documentation and the rigid structure of Project > Study > Experiment with the definition of aims and sub-aims helps to break complex problems into simpler tasks.

Vantagens:

In my personal experience, elabjournal did not only improve the structure of my documentation, it also improved experiment planning, design and execution.

Desvantagens:

table or list based viewing and editing can be a pain. E.g. entering many new samples to the inventory for largely overlapping yet different properties is a time consuming task.

eLAB Journal is a great tool for any kind of research lab

4,0 há 3 anos

Comentários: eLAB is definitely keeping everything from project planning, data, and inventory very organized and very accessible. The customer service from the company is also great. We had someone come to our lab to help us implement the system and are happy with the level of responsiveness from the company when you have a question or problem.

Vantagens:

The ability to easily track inventory, whether it be samples, chemicals, or freezer space. We also like ability to have central storage for our data that is easily accessible.

Desvantagens:

The interface to print labels is very hard to use. You have to create code to make the labels, I was expecting a much easier setup since the rest of eLAB is so easy to use. We also wish that there was a way to create fillable data sheets in the system that was not just directly importing from excel.

Resposta do eLabNext

há 4 semanas

Thank you for reviewing eLabJournal Tracy. Making labels can sometimes be a bit time consuming if you have very specific needs, but once the templates are created, then it just as easy as 1, 2, 3. With that said, we have a few new add-ons in our Marketplace that can help alleviate the pain points you've mentioned! FLUICS Print is a full-service label solution that includes free label design services to all eLabNext customers which takes away your need to create those templates yourself. In addition, our Office Online add-on will enable you to embed and edit Excel sheets (also Word, and PPT) directly within your experiments. If you're interested in learning more about these features, let us know and we'll connect you with your dedicated account manager for a demonstration! Thank you for your feedback, and we are looking forward to supporting you!

Replace the paper notebook

4,0 há 11 meses

Vantagens:

eLabJournal is an easy and efficient way to replace the paper notebook. It's really user friendly. We use also a lot the inventory and it is convenient to link samples to experiment.

Desvantagens:

The most feature that could be improved is the way to add samples in experiment (in used/generated samples section). Indeed, when we search the sample, it's only in the browser, so we need to know the location of the sample and we can only add samples located in a same box at a time. If we could add a sample in experiment by searching a sample in the same way that we can search a sample in the Inventory -> sample list section, it could be really easy to add samples.

Thank you for reviewing eLabJournal Marie! We absolutely agree that this can be improved, and our team is working on it - stay tuned for more updates on this topic! In the meantime, have you tried the Scan to ELN add-on available for free in our Marketplace? This feature lets you scan barcoded samples directly into your experiment sections and can really help streamline the input process. Our development team is also working on a full redesign of our Inventory module that will optimize your sample management workflows with a host of new features and improvements! - - - - -

Comentários: We have been using eLAB 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 eLAB is going to be an integral part of managing the study. eLAB 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 work flow. Additionally the eLAB team is incredibly responsive and easy to work with. Thanks for the help getting us going and answering all of our questions.

Hi Sakashi, thank you for sharing your experience with the platform! While the Mobile App isn't intended to match the browser's functionality 1-for-1, there are a few unique features that make it a great companion piece to the desktop version of eLab when you're "on-the-fly" and away from your computer (ex. the voice transcription functionality allows you to dictate notes hand-free!). That said, our new UI has a mobile-friendly design that will allow you to use the full version of eLabJournal on your tablet or phone's browser! If you're looking to handwrite text and have it translated into a digital format, there are app extension on both iOS and Android that can be installed for use as a secondary keyboard. There's an app called Handrwiring, that is mostly used by our customers, consider trying that! In the meantime, we've recently allocated a number of resources into optimizing the Mobile App, so stay tuned for more details!

eLABJournal ELN user-experience

4,0 há 2 anos

Vantagens:

The eLabJournal software was incredibly fast set-up, everything was ready in two days. Very nice customer service in that sense. The included inventory software is very useful in order to track your stocks. Especially when this is not set up yet for your group/lab. It allowed us to combine different projects into one overview. With general good accessibility and user-friendliness.

Desvantagens:

The adjustable tables that calculate how many you need of a certain component are not really straightforward. Making protocols is therefore not always that easy.

Hi Ben, thanks for reviewing eLabJournal! Our team works very hard to ensure that the application design is intuitive, so it's wonderful to hear how quickly your lab was able to get up-and-running with the platform. Since Feb 2020, we have had numerous updates to the system, including a new UI that should help to make things more straightforward. However, we will make sure your feedback about the protocol calculations gets communicated to our developers for future development consideration! If you have specific ideas, please do not hesitate to share more detailed feedback with [email protected], and we'll work to incorporate your response into future versions of the platform!
