AgileBio releases a new version of LabCollector’s Electronic Lab Notebook

Paris, France & San Diego, CA (May 31, 2016) – In today’s laboratories the amount of collaborations and information to keep track of seem to be rapidly growing for both academic and industrial scientists.   AgileBio developed LabCollector to meet the needs of managing and sharing the vast amounts of data generated in labs and make sure that information gets shared with the right people at the right time.  To meet these needs AgileBio announces a new version of LabCollector Electronic Lab Notebook v3.6.



This new version of ELN (v3.6) includes many new features. A new text editor now includes a built-in image editor. Image editing and annotating have been long neglected by ELNs, although image capturing from a range of applications and quick annotations is a routine lab activity.  A new HTML5 spreadsheet is available to facilitate all your calculations inside the ELN.  The design is made for full functionality with all devices including tablets, iPads and mobile phones.

For more privacy a login time out has been created: when leaving your ELN session open without action the page becomes blurred and an authentication is needed to access where you stopped working with all edits in place.  James Morris, a LabCollector consultant calls this “A simple and elegant solution for maintaining security and privacy in the lab that does not disrupt work.  It’s perfect for when you are suddenly called away from the lab.” 

Backups are now automatically created within the text editor.  Forgetting to save a page will no longer create a loss of information.  The intermediate versions are saved to allow continuation of work from any version.  All versions remain traceable to avoid loss of information

General performance and usability improvements have been made.  In this version, you will also find all the functions that are the strength of the AgileBio ELN:

  • Page templates now allow mandatory fields
  • Create and apply experiment workflows
  • Diagram designer tool includes new icons
  • Integrated HTLM 5 spreadsheet
  • Historic data/audit trail
  • Author and witness page validation/closing and signing
