LabWareSummary from Vendor: LabWare ELN is an experiment and workflow driven software application designed to give laboratory scientists the ultimate platform to electronically document their experiments including relevant scientific content and observations, instrument results, and attachments such as spectra, chromatograms and, if appropriate, chemical structures. The LabWare Electronic Laboratory Notebook is organized into spreadsheet-like workbooks that can be sub-divided into tabs similar to Microsoft Excel. The layout and organization of each workbook tab is completely configurable.
