Electronic Lab Notebooks



Electronic Lab Notebooks (ELNs) are the gateway for capturing lab data consistently and sharing it efficiently. ELNs streamline the documentation and protection of intellectual property, help scientists collaborate in increasingly global and networked activities from discovery to manufacturing and make scientific data and observations associated with experimentation easier to capture, search, find and use.

With an ELN, many of the tedious tasks in the lab are simplified, from searching previous work and planning experiments, to preparing and performing tests, and then documenting and interpreting the results. An ELN from BIOVIA increases knowledge sharing and collaboration, eliminating the “dark data” problem that plagues paper-based labs, where up to 90% of data is only used once and then lost or forgotten. With an ELN, up to 85% of experimental data is re-used. Unnecessary repetition of experiments is also reduced, making better use of limited resources.


BIOVIA provides two class-leading ELNs for use in science-based industries: BIOVIA Notebook and BIOVIA Workbook. Both ELNs are available on the cloud for simplified deployment and reduced total cost of ownership (TCO). They can also be deployed on-premises if desired.

The two ELNs integrate with the wider suite of BIOVIA Unified Lab applications  such as BIOVIA Compose, BIOVIA Capture, BIOVIA Samples, BIOVIA Task Plan, and the BIOVIA Pipeline Pilot data science solution. This powerful combination lets organizations integrate a BIOVIA ELN with their lab instruments and other data sources while also providing rich capabilities for scientific analytics, visualization and automated report generation.

BIOVIA Notebook

BIOVIA Notebook is an intuitive web-based ELN which allows users to get up and running quickly with minimal training. It is easy to use on mobile devices, with a flexible experiment editor, powerful search functions, and electronic signatures for procedure authorizations and IP protection.

BIOVIA Workbook

BIOVIA Workbook is a multi-discipline and extensively configurable ELN which manages workflow authoring, procedure execution and sign-offs, and experimental documentation across different domains like Analytical Chemistry, Drug Development, Formulations, Process Chemistry or Biologics.
