Innovative Informatics Solutions for Biologists
Thermo Fisher™ Core ELN™ software (Electronic Laboratory Notebook) is a robust, user-friendly data management solution designed to meet the needs of biologists from a variety of disciplines from discovery through manufacturing. From designing and organizing experiments to generating and sharing reports, the ELN offers both the flexibility of free-form data entry, and a more structured 21CFR 11/GxP compliant environment. Users can design and utilize customizable templates, and can easily insert content from a number of different file types, including Word, Excel, PDF, ChemDraw, and others.
Core ELN software enables biologists to increase efficiencies and minimize errors with the automated capture and import of data from laboratory instruments and LIMS systems. The ELN can perform statistical analyses, and supports extensive e-signature and audit workflows. The easy to use interface facilitates a seamless transition from traditional paper notebooks, and simplifies data capture and reporting.

Key Features of the Biology ELN
User Friendly – The friendly, natural work environment enables the creation of experiments and logging of data quickly and simply, so biologists can spend more time at the bench. Forms and templates can be customized to suit your needs, and can include calculations, drop down boxes, or other means of rapid data entry and analysis. Biologists can easily pivot and filter data from within the system, and create queries and custom reports. Once an experiment is created and customized, it can easily be cloned, allowing you to re-use all of your saved formats.
Free Form Documents – To provide increased flexibility required in some Biology labs, Core ELN software provides “Free Form” documents. These documents allow for unstructured data entry, including drag and drop functionality, free text, image import, and the addition of data from spreadsheets, charts, graphs, etc. Calculations can be performed on captured data, and the completed document can be saved as a PDF for external review.
Integration – The Core ELN software seamlessly integrates with various informatics systems and instrumentation. Real-time integration and electronic data transfer with various instrumentation and automation increases efficiency, eliminates errors, and provides a solution for system monitoring and calibration.
