A good value for the price, but needs some tiny tweaks to make it exceptional.
Rating: 3.3

  • Application Area: Inventory management and electronic method/buffer procedures

"eLAB is easy to use and has been, for the most part, customizable for our company. I appreciate their willingness and effort towards our small business to make eLab useful to us. The cloud-based system is great as lab members can track their samples from their benchtops without having to go back to their desks. I appreciate responses to my help desk inquiries, but often the response is, "it'll be in the next update", but there is no exact date given. I like that I can print sample labels from the software, but it was a bit tedious to set up and not as user friendly as I had expected. Setting up the sample types and storage units was easy. I wish the procedures/buffer and solutions pages worked like Excel."

Good software and response time, but limited customization.
Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area:Lab notebook and inventory software

"The software is excellent for tracking experiments and inventory. It has a multitude of capabilities, but is lacking in key areas of particular interest to me. I wish the folder structure could expand beyond 3 levels to better group my experiments for my workgroup. We use it for tissue culture and large batches of samples are easy to generate. The difficulty is in tracking parent/child relationships and large batches of samples. Customer service has been excellent with response time and desire to assist in resolving issues. Most of my interactions have led to Bio-ITech acknowledging my issue and saying they will determine if my desired functionality is worth pursuing for development. I feel this is great software for starter labs or labs new to electronic documentation."

Great tool for organization in the research lab.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Biomarker discovery in environmental health studies

"We find eLabJournal to be a key component of the daily activities in our research lab. It allows us to be organized at different levels, from sample inventory, referencing protocols, annotating experiments, organizing data, among others."

A must for collaborative R&D in materials science/chemistry.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Materials science and chemistry in the energy sector

"Very nice product that quickly becomes a must for any activity dealing with a lot of testing of specimens/samples and test data generation. Collaboration is seamless. More development is required on the mobile app but it's already pretty useful."

It is useful to have a reliable method to track standards.

  • Application Area:Standards, chemicals, inventory for equine drug testing

"We "tweaked" the system for our inventory and ordering needs. The system is more useful for tracking our inventory of standards on hand."

Fell short of expectations.
Rating: 2.7

  • Application Area:Electronic laboratory notebook

"We expected that the option of having Excel directly in the journal module would a game-changer for us and it fell short of that. It seemed very clunky and ended up being difficult to convince the team to use the internal module, and instead most of us found it easier to bulk upload our excel files which limited the ability to search through the documents. We felt that there had been no upgrades or improvements to the journal. When we signed up, we made it clear that an important feature for us would be the visualization of DNA sequences with the ability to design primers and constructs within the module and have all of that information tied to a project. There seemed to be some motivation on Bio-I-tech’s side to implement these sort of features in the future based on lots of companies feedback. After several months, it was very clear to us that this notebook program was not going to focus on molecular biology much because the clientele that use this product come from a diversity of industrial and academic backgrounds."

Very impressed with the functionality and ability to provide customized solutions.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Electronic lab journal and inventory system

"I evaluated 5 other electronic lab notebooks in addition to Bio-ITech's. It is by far the best in my opinion. It's important to know that I have many years of experience working in labs with elab notebooks. As such, our newer lab members found this a bit difficult to start with. I've used home-brew via Excel, SAP, and FileMaker Pro in other labs as well. This has a ton of functionality that makes it clear that scientists were involved in the design. You can import any documents, and even select specific pages from documents to add if the whole document is not relevant. It is ISO certified so everything is dated/timed and states the changes made and who made them. The inventory system is completely customizable to literally any cold storage system you may have. You can create your own storage container sizes. If you have formulas and calculations in excel they easily copy and paste in. I found that other elab notebooks lost the formulas in pasting. I also found the other notebooks we tried to be more of a glorified Word/Excel homebrew with a similar price tag to this system. Another important note is that protocols can be saved to add into an experiment, any changes made in the experimental protocol will not change the original. One more nice-to-have that's included, is the option to post protocols to share with the entire scientific community. Lastly, they currently have an option to add a section to write on with an e-pen. I hear they are currently working to make the notebook e-pen friendly overall. They've also mentioned that they can customize add-ons for functionality that we would like. Overall, it is much better."

Great product! Very convenient and essential for any modern lab.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Writing lab procedures for biotech work in university lab.

"Easy to use. I really like their website, however their mobile app leaves much to be desired. you can't book equipment from the app which is what I'd primarily like it for. other than that its a very intuitive platform which I'm thrilled my lab uses. It's so convenient to be able to keep track of all our reagents and experiments in one place. Helps with planning experiments and keeping inventory. Again my only critique is to update the mobile app to include more of the features that are possible on the site."

Once you learn to use it, you'll be happy you choose it!
Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area:Keep of track of sample inventory

"I'm so glad I was able to give this product a test-run. I love that it works in conjunction with the Eppendorf equipment we have in our lab. I can keep track of sample inventory, easily identify the type of samples and where they are located without having to open the freezer. It is a bit difficult to learn to use, but playing with it a bit and you'll get the hang of it."

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Electronic lab notebook

"eLabJournal has been a wonderful replacement to paper lab notebooks. It quickly became crucial for our research program and has helped us get more organized and stay on top of our data. eLabJournal representatives are also always ready to answer questions or take feedback. It has been a wonderful experience bringing eLabJournal into our lab."

Great notebook and tracking software.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Taking lab notes and entering inventory.

"I use the product eLabJournal to take notes and keep track of my strains within the lab space. The note taking software is fine. I think a simple Word document can do a little more, but one thing eLabJournal has over a Word document is the simple process of linking directly to the strain or enzyme used. This feature makes it much easier to find that item next time you need it. The strain collection tracking software is second to none. The strains can be virtually stored in custom compartments. When you move them in the lab space you simply move them in the virtually space. It is very difficult to lose a strain with this software."

Very useful product.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Experiments

"This product is very useful for my experiments, because it has all the tools I need. Sometimes it does malfunction, for example when my internet connection is not the best, it tends to get stuck and does not want to save my experiments. The product is not difficult to use. At first I did not quite understand it, but you learn quickly. The product is quite expensive for a student like myself, but you do get your money’s worth. Although I would appreciate the product even more if it was an app instead of a site."

It works great, the price is fair, and it helps a lot - great product!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Writing down notes during the experiments in the lab and collecting and reflecting on data.

"I like how easy the e-labjournal is to use. The lay-out makes the end result very comprehensive, making it a labjournal that someone else would be able to follow without asking further directions from the writer. I find the price fair for how much you need this product, how easy it is to use and how much easier it makes your lab-life. The automatic save function and the ability to go back and recover your previous functions, are life-savers. I have not received any troubles with this product so far, and I've been using it for over a year."

Quite happy with the possibilities.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:General lab work

"It's a great lab journal tool which makes it easy to search in past experiments. The smartphone app is very convenient for bringing protocols to the lab without the need to print. Because of the large number of possibilities it takes some time to learn your way around. There are some things that still need to be done on a computer and cannot be done in the app, such as adding procedures to experiments/projects."

  • Application Area:Protocols about pericytes senescence and cell culture.

"The product is really useful since it provides a open but secure way of sharing information of every kind with your lab colleagues and mates without the need of meeting in person. It offers a wide range of options and I like that you can select who you share things with. Also for the posting of protocols is a good opportunity. Now people do not have to go and take a look at old books where everything is so difficult to find, but they can search the protocol online in this secure website that has the specific protocol designed by people from their own labs."
