LIMS vs. ELN vs. LES

Capturing, managing, and controlling the flow of laboratory data and information as well as your laboratory processes continues to be a challenge for research and quality assurance departments across industries.  Scientific software tools (aka laboratory informatics) have been developed, marketed, and implemented to help with this challenge for decades.  However, as the “alphabet soup” (LIMS, ELN, LES, etc.) of laboratory informatics solutions available continues to grow, it is becoming more difficult to determine which system will give you the capabilities and benefits that you are looking for and which solution is best for you.

In one hour, learn the benefits and use of Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS), Laboratory Execution Systems (LES), and Electronic Laboratory Notebooks (ELN). 

LIMS vs. ELN vs. LESKey Takeaways:

  • Discover the different types of applications for laboratory informatics: LIMS, LES, and ELN
  • See how each application could impact and improve the quality of work produced in the laboratory
  • Learn how these applications can streamline processes in the laboratory
  • Understand which applications can be used for research and which are geared towards QC
