4 Things PIs like about the electronic lab notebook eCAT

Posted by Rory on July 19th, 2010 @ 7:00 am

Today I thought I’d let some PIs who are using eCAT in their labs speak for themselves about eCAT.  Here are four things they like about it:

  1. “The great thing about eCAT is, it’s incredibly flexible in terms of how you can set it up. For example each member of the lab has their own folders and puts their own experiments within that, but it’s every easy to put that information together.” (Mike Shipston, Edinburgh University)
  2. “Perhaps the most important feature for us is the ability to link records, reagents and experiments. This allows us, for example, to connect an experimental mouse with the tube containing its tissues in the freezer, to the 6 different experiments (conducted over a year) that analysed those tissues in different ways. Managing this kind of ‘metadata’ is absolutely essential to our work, and very difficult to do without tools like eCAT.” (Alex Swarbrick, Garvan Institute)
  3. “With eCAT we were able to organize all our projects and materials, and create an integrated and searchable database of our work.” (Michael Shtutman, Ordway Institute)
  4. “Because it’s accessible over the internet eCAT is easy to view, from my office or my lab, or at home.” (Larry Gonzalez, University of Oklahoma)
