Live Webinar – Challenges Facing Academic Institutions when Implementing ELN Solutions
A panel discussion sponsored by the Astrix Technology Group
Date: Tuesday, June 13, 2017 – Time: 1:00 PM EDT / 10:00 AM PDT
Laboratory informatics solutions, such as Electronic Laboratory Notebooks (ELNs) and Laboratory Information Systems (LIMS), are essential elements of the modern electronic laboratory that drive process efficiencies, data transparency, timely decision making, and protection of intellectual property. In academia, adoption of these systems in on the rise, but not without key challenges since many well-known solutions were designed with commercial laboratories in mind, e.g., for QC testing. Key cultural and organizational differences exist in academic institutions that drive decisions around funding, timing, adoption, and data access. Such differences translate into higher platform agility requirements that differ from those of their commercial counterparts, who operate on much longer time scales and different success criteria. This panel discussion will explore some of the current challenges, with a focus on how academic institutions are mitigating these issues. Solutions and thinking for next-generation platforms will also be covered, providing valuable feedback to the software vendor community.
