Agilent Technologies has announced that Maquet of Ardon, France, has purchased the company’s OpenLAB ELN electronic lab notebook bundled with Surety's AbsoluteProof third-party, digital timestamping service.
Maquet, reported to be a major manufacturer of medical products, therapies and services for operating rooms and intensive care units, purchased the system to replace paper lab notebooks. To protect scientific intellectual property, personnel had to regularly shuttle the notebooks to an off-site notary office to be manually time stamped. By implementing an automated digital notarization process, the company expects to streamline the efficiency and effectiveness of this process. The company says it was also seeking a tool to facilitate collaboration between research teams in France and Germany.
"OpenLAB ELN enables our customers to capture, manage and share their valuable research," said Bruce von Herrmann, vice president and general manager, Agilent Software and Informatics. "The seamless integration of AbsoluteProof secures corporate intellectual property at the time of inception, automating the documentation of when patents are submitted."
According to the company, the ELN provides scientists with a scalable, integrated platform for creating, capturing, managing and sharing information in an increasingly complex global environment. The company claims to have streamlined the analytical request workflow by reducing the number of steps between request and result, which improves lab productivity. A specific analytical module for documenting analytical methods, generating sequence files and capturing results has been added to facilitate report creation across one or more samples and techniques.
