Spreadsheet Paradigm

An Intuitive System that builds on your previous knowledge
The SciCord ELN is designed around the Spreadsheet Paradigm. This allows for the tool to be accepted quickly and for training to be minimal. Existing spreadsheets used within the lab can be transferred into the SciCord ELN.

  • Common Knowledge:
    spreadsheets are ubiquitous throughout the scientific community.
    The SciCord ELN builds on a scientist’s previous spreadsheet expertise for spreadsheet validation.
  • Intuitive and User-Friendly Interface:
    the spreadsheet paradigm is built into the SciCord User Interface,
    which reduces training and increases user acceptance.
    Non-routine documentation is supported via spreadsheet tables, formulas, textboxes, and charts.
  • Quick Configuration:
    existing laboratory Excel workbooks can be utilized within the SciCord ELN environment.

 

Efficient Review

  • Controlled review/approval process relevant to specific document compliance requirements
  • Visual indication of information requiring review
  • “Sticky” notes for communication between reviewer and scientist.
  • Quick links between the review document and resources such as logbooks, standard or solution preparation.
  • Multi-person reviews are intrinsically supported

SciCord reviews are 30% more efficient than reviews of bound notebooks.
