Product News: Intelligent integration of VisioNize Lab Suite and eLabInventory

20 Apr 2022

eLabNext & Eppendorf announce their second intelligent integration: VisioNize® Lab Suite (VNLS) Sense environmental condition monitoring sensors are now integrated with eLabInventory. This synthesis will allow labs to have more accurate and verifiable data, with a full audit trail of the history of samples’ lifespan.

Whether for sensitive reagents, already developed therapeutic drugs, compound libraries, or even thousands of biobank samples, being able to monitor their viability and condition is imperative to a GxP-compliant lab. Even the smallest change in temperature can affect the quality of a sample, so notification and monitoring systems are needed, not only for sample safety but also for confidence in your data.  

Sample safety with instant temperature collection:

eLabNext provides sample/inventory (LIMS) and Data (ELN - Electronic Lab Notebook) solutions to Life Science labs, under one platform, allowing scientists to seamlessly automate their workflows and increase efficiency in the lab. With this as the foundation, VisioNize sense integration will now allow the users to attach these sensors to anything from a freezer, refrigerator, incubator, storage room, or the growth room, and cultivate data that can be accessed at any point for further analysis. 

The CryoCube® smart freezer models from Eppendorf are equipped with VisioNize® sense integration

VisioNize sense can capture, record, and transfer even the smallest changes in your environmental condition. An easy-to-install sensor system requires no specialist IT skills. With the VisioNize sense add-on, you can now retrieve relevant sensor monitoring data without logging into VisioNize Lab Suite from Eppendorf.

The add-on works seamlessly with eLabInventory and offers a flexible way to visualize temperature data within your inventory list, and thus protecting the integrity of your samples.

The VisioNize sense kit includes an environmental monitoring sensor that measures ambient temperature, humidity, pressure, and light, and a PT-100 extension that can measure the temperature of any device (including ULT freezers) within the range of +60 to -90 °C. The gateway router sends the collected parameter data to VisioNize Lab Suite and the data is pulled into eLabInventory. As a user, you can easily switch to VisioNize Lab Suite to enjoy the full feature set of the Eppendorf digital platform.

Data confidence:

Confidence in data comes with confidence in your equipment and its performance, to which, Eppendorf, of course is no stranger. Now, VizioNize allows you to access that information, whether it be a remote monitoring solution, an alarm, or a management system. The combination of features of VNLS and eLabNext provides confidence to the scientific community, and confidence in the integrity of their data. 

Partnership in action:

eLabNext values the importance of sample safety, integrity, and data reliability. With this partnership with Eppendorf, we have combined our values, expertise, and vision to bring you a more “plugged-in” view of your lab. Decentralizing your data across multiple applications can cause extremely pricey issues for a company that is scaling up. In contrast, this integration from our Marketplace, will allow you to get one step closer to a “one-stop” high-quality digital lab that will provide your scientists with the necessary tools to perform research and process development more efficiently.
