How to Select an ELN for Biology R&D
With drug discovery trending towards heightened costs, complexity, and collaboration, ensuring that your R&D organization has the best tools possible for documenting research is more important than ever. But for many scientists and informatics professionals, the electronic lab notebook (ELN) sourcing and evaluation process is complex and murky. It involves a lot of moving parts without a clear market standard to assess against, but the stakes are clear. Implementing an ELN-centric informatics solution is an integral part of ensuring that an R&D organization runs at full efficiency, but if the wrong ELN is implemented, it runs the risk of generating inefficiency, a lack of adoption, and insufficient integration with other systems.
