Laboratory Informatics Systems Help Eliminate Data Entry Errors

While data entry is a normal part of laboratory work, how you do it matters in terms of overall operational performance. Labs may begin with manual data entry, but they will quickly discover that the cost of that process is going to be excessive in the long run. This is another example where automation using systems like an electronic laboratory notebook (ELN) or a LIMS, like LabLynx’s ELab LIMS, can streamline lab operations, reduce overall operating costs, and better use people’s skills and capabilities.
