Upgrade: E-Notebook 2014 packs a punch with new features

Navigation Pane in E-Notebook 2014

Launched in late 2013, the newest version of PerkinElmer’s electronic laboratory notebook, E-Notebook 2014, has upgraded the E-Notebook experience to provide even more seamless integration with TIBCO Spotfire® software and the Datalytix query tool, and to provide the most user-friendly solution for planning, capturing, recording and analyzing scientific data.

Already the most widely used electronic laboratory notebook, the new version of E-Notebook will offer a significantly improved user experience, features modernizations and attractive appearance to researchers in pharmaceutical, biotech, chemical, food/flavor/fragrance, and petrochemical industries, as well as academic and government institutions. A well-tailored upgrade toolkit means that migrating to E-Notebook 2014 will accommodate existing customizations.

Key highlights from the new E-Notebook 2014 include an improved interface appearance and usability, enhanced integration with registration and inventory workflows, and upgraded core components to provide a faster, more robust and adaptable platform.

A brand new drag and drop feature drastically reduces the number of required mouse clicks while allowing users to search, find and drag files right into their experiment, which are sorted automatically into organized document sections. The drag and drop capabilities extend even further to allow for moving entire experiments from folder to folder, copying experiment data between ELNs, and quick and easy rearrangements of experiment sections.

Another new feature allows for faster data filtering through new tables that sort, group and filter information before automatically saving experiment settings for future convenience. Experiment information is now available in new reading modes that enable users to pick whether they want to view data as tabs and sections or as a scrolling document, all the while being able to collapse or expand sections to maintain an organized screen.

Other new features include inline or external editing options, structured data management built into specific experiments or tests, a comprehensive data mapping wizard, cross-experiment searches across multiple E-Notebooks.

The new and improved upgrade kit has a specialized diagnostic tool that pinpoints customizations that exist within older E-Notebook versions to allow for a comprehensive migration process that reduces the time and cost of an upgrade.

For biology researchers, a new BioAnalytical module has been specially designed to run on E-Notebook 2014 as well as earlier E-Notebook versions. Read about the new BioAnalytical module here: BioAnalytical Module for E-Notebook 2014.
