ELN Means Many Things to Many People
What is an Electronic Laboratory Notebook (ELN)? What function does it serve? Where does it fit within my laboratory informatics strategy? Do we need an ELN, and if so what would be best for my company’s needs? When should I use an ELN, or a LIMS or both? These are all important questions, and unfortunately, they are being asked with increasing frequency due to a lack of clarity in the market.
