How do I Choose the Best ELN for my Research?

The benefits of adopting a LIMS ELN software solution are immeasurable, and with more and more university researchers looking for electronic notebook solutions, there are plenty of ELN software products to choose from. So, how do you choose the best system for your team?

Decide What Features You Need

Not all ELN software is created equally. If you’re a student, you may not find an ELN solution that offers a “lite” version of the product, which forces you to pay a higher premium for features you’ll never use.

That’s why Sapio Sciences is proud to offer four editions of its Informatics Platform, which gives the lab manager more freedom to choose the ELN features they need at a price that meets their budget.

Compare Costs

When looking for the ideal ELN software to add to your laboratory work, consider the hidden or extra costs that may be involved.

For example, if you’re digitizing your lab processes, you’re probably considering migrating to a LIMS system to collect, manage, store, and edit lab data. Sapio provides an all-in-one solution that combines electronic lab notebook features along with LIMS features on a single platform.

By using one platform for both your LIMS and ELN systems, you don’t have to worry about integration issues or purchasing and implementing multiple systems.

Consider Regulatory Compliance

Complying with your funder’s data security guidelines and restrictions is of the utmost importance. Before you choose the right ELN software, be sure you understand where and how you’re allowed to store your lab data.

If your funder won’t allow cloud-based data storage, your options may be limited to on-premise storage options.

The Sapio Seamless Informatics Platform offers private cloud or on-premise deployment options to help meet the demands of your stakeholders.

Think Long Term

20 years ago, most ELNs were chemistry focused—today, modern products have factored in more general lab notebook capabilities and large molecule work.

Sapio Sciences’ Informatics Platform allows for seamless LIMS/ELN integration supporting all scientific disciplines. Academics can also take full advantage of both LIMS and ELN features to bolster their productivity and lab efforts.
