Templates

eCAT comes with many templates to help you get started. It's also easy to create your own templates.

Storing and finding scientific data can be tricky - it comes in a variety of different forms and storing all your data in simple pages like a lab notebook can make data hard to work with and difficult to find later.

The solution to this is templates - if you have Antibody data to store, store it in an Antibody template with the correct fields for the job! eCAT comes with a variety of templates for both notebook and sample management work so you can get started quickly. A few are shown below, but there are many more in the system.

You can see all the notebook templates here and all the sample templates here. All of these templates are available to eCAT personal users.

While eCAT is a very powerful piece of software, it cant predict all of your data management needs - no system can. But eCAT lets you build your own templates very easily, so you can work with your data in exactly the way you want.

Creating templates is easy - its all done in a clear drag and drop interface. This video shows you how.

eCAT is a flexible, easy to use electronic lab notebook that lets you add structure to your lab's research data in an integrated collaborative online environment.
