Mike Shipston’s lab at the Centre for Integrative Physiology, Edinburgh University, benefits from eCAT’s flexibility and ease of use in research using post transcriptional and post translational mechanisms of ion channel regulation

“We generate a wide variety of types of data sets, for example data from molecular analysis, quantitative analysis, for example quantitative RTPCR, gene cloning, through to electrophysiological analysis, for example from confocal images and total internal reflective microscopy right up to behaviorial assays in animals.   We use eCAT as a cataloging and information retrieval system.  We can keep catalogs of resources  and protocols up to date and exchange that very effectively between lab members.  We also use eCAT as an ELN.  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 its every easy to put that information together. It was a major surprise; transferring to an electronic lab notebook is actually very easy.”
