From ages, across industries, laboratories are an integral part of manufacturing and scientific research organizations. The main goal of research and diagnostic labs is to provide high quality and reliable experimental information that fulfills the industry needs. The constant use of manual and isolated systems hampers the data quality during transferring process. Nowadays, advancement in technologies and increasing pressure to deliver results has led to the use of automated systems in laboratories. Automated systems are being adapted in huge scale because of its accuracy, advanced data management capacity and reduced repetitiveness.
At present, scientific research areas are making use of automated systems which are in need of secure informatics platform where experimental data can be stored and exchanged flexibly. Indeed, ELN support this huge requirement in automated industry. For instance, Seattle Genetics EWorkbook supports broad range of scientific discipline by securing and managing research data.
