Looking back on 2011 and looking ahead in 2012

As we are getting closer towards the end of 2011, we feel it is time give you an update of what we have brought to you this year and that you can expect from us in 2012.

Introduction of eLabInventory in 2011

In 2011 we have mainly focused on the development and introduction of eLabInventory in life science research laboratories. eLabInventory is a web-based Inventory Management System that aids labs in organizing specimen and samples stored in the lab. We have successfully introduced eLabInventory in several labs this year and the interest in eLabInventory is growing rapidly. Also, we have received many ideas for new features as well as many suggestions to improve some of the existing functionality in eLabInventory. For this, we want to thank you all! As we did in 2011, we will continue to improve eLabInventory and offer new features to make eLabInventory even more valuable for your lab. More information about which features to expect and when the next eLabInventory update will be released will follow in 2012.

Launching eLabJournal in 2012

Our main aim is to offer companies and laboratories a total and turn-key solution to organize their work in the lab. We will continue to do so in 2012. Therefore we are pleased to announce the long expected release of eLabJournal. eLabJournal is a web-based laboratory information management system that enables scientists to organize their lab work in a digital labjournal. eLabJournal will include, among many other features, full integration of eLabInventory and eLabProtocols. For those interested in eLabJournal and all supported features, there is an eLabJournal Product Tour on our website. As we did with eLabInventory, we offer several beta testing accounts early 2012. Labs interested in testing eLabJournal can contact us to register for a testing account.

New eLabProtocols features

With the integration of eLabProtocols in eLabJournal, we will also introduce several new features to eLabProtocols. Our main goal for eLabProtocols is to make it more intuitive and easy to set up and configure dropdown menus in dynamic protocols. The defined dynamic elements (dropdown menus) serve as an input field for your data input in eLabJournal. More information about when to expect the eLabProtocols update will follow in 2012.

Mobile platform applications

The strong increase of users with smart phones and tablets in the lab did not stay unnoticed to us. For labs using eLabInventory, we have recently developed the eLabInventory Scanner App to scan barcode labels and to retrieve all sample information directly on your smartphone. The App is available in the Android Market and is currently awaiting approval for the Apple App store. We expect its approval early 2012.

Finally, we want to thank you all for your support over the past year! On behalf of our entire team we wish you all a Merry Christmas and all the best wishes for the year 2012!
