The LabArchives Platform, and Electronic Laboratory Notebooks

Mr Earl Beutler, Founder and CEO, LabArchives, will present a seminar on Friday 3rd March on the adoption and implementation of the LabArchives platform, and Electronic Laboratory Notebooks as a system to capture, store and share the intellectual property created in the laboratory.

Whilst the culture of change from a paper notebook to a digital one is fundamental, electronic notebooks are becoming increasingly workflow friendly while safeguarding against issues such as:

  • regulatory compliance  
  • data leakage/loss
  • allowing real time collaborations/grant applications  
  • esponding to funding body audits
  • demonstrating IP protection
  • implementing researcher integrity protections.
  • Earl comes from a talented family in the medical and technology fields.  He invented Reference Manager in the 1970’s with his father Ernest, who was Chairman of the Department of Molecular and Experimental Medicine at The Scripps Research Institute.  His brother Bruce won the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2011.

We invite you to come and listen to Earl and ask any questions you may have on the market or technology.  The seminar will be held in the Finkel Lecture Theatre,  The John Curtin School of Medical Research Building 131, Garran Road at ANU.  The seminar will run from 10am to 11am with questions to follow.

What is LabArchives?

Labarchives is an electronic solution that combines laboratory note taking with the management of associated files and datasets; designed to protect data and comply with regulatory funding requirements.  An organisation wide LabArchives ELN solution is used as the foundation of lab data capture at the University of Sydney, Monash University, the Garvan Institute, Victor Change Institute Children’s Medical Research Institute at Westmead and Telethon Kids Institute to name a few.  Institutes such as the Garvan have mandated the use of LabArchives, meaning no more paper in laboratories!
