  • Historically, Electronic Laboratory Notebooks have been designed to accommodate research laboratories. Little, if any, consideration has been given to the needs of QA/QC labs. However, the requirements of QA/QC labs are significantly different from research labs. This article will discuss these differences and identify the requirements of an ELN for the QA/QC lab.

    R&D Requirements

    The traditional view of an ELN is that it is an R&D tool. It provides three main functions to the R&D lab:
