Researchers turn to Electronic Notebook
May 07 2017
The Berlin Institute of Health (BIH) has signed an agreement which allows BIH member entities and its employees to use labfolder's electronic lab notebook at the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin (University Hospital) and the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) in Berlin-Buch.
The BIH is the second major customer that Berlin-based start-up labfolder has gained in a short period of time. Since October 2016, 11,000 researchers at the Max Planck Society have had access to labfolder's electronic lab notebook. More than 4,000 researchers at the Charité and the MDC will now be able to use the system.
"The license agreement with BIH, a unique scientific institution in Berlin, is another key milestone in our company's development," said Dr. Simon Bungers, CEO of labfolder. "The agreement also shows the importance of centralised and digital data management solutions for large research associations. labfolder meets all compliance requirements and provides a unified approach to data security and archiving."
"Data quality is critical for the success and reproducibility of research," said Professor Ulrich Dirnagl, Head of the Department of Experimental Neurology at Charité and Founding Director of the Center for Transforming Biomedical Research at the BIH who also initiated the institution's introduction of the electronic lab notebook. "Adopting labfolder's lab notebook is therefore part of BIH's quality initiative. It introduces a uniform digital standard that meets the rules of Good Scientific and Laboratory Practice. The new electronic lab notebook also enables documentation to meet the requirements of international regulatory authorities. This improves the quality of research data, which ultimately facilitates the translation of research results."
