Features & benefits
Hivebench is an easy-to-use Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) designed to support life science workflows and improve experiment reproducibility. Hivebench allows life scientists, PIs and lab managers to track their protocols and research data at the bench, ensuring comprehensive, consistent and structured workflow and data capture.
Research workflows are more efficient using Hivebench. Location isn’t an issue as experiments can be scheduled, prepared, and conducted - and the results analyzed - via phone or tablet. Previous data can be found and shared with colleagues or exported to Mendeley Data in preparation for future publications.
Any kind of files can be added to experiments. Images and videos can be viewed inside Hivebench or links can be added to other files for further review.
Protocols and inventories databases
Knowledge bases can be created, allowing existing procedures to be shared with lab colleagues. Reagents can be tracked and stocks kept up to date. Tried and tested methods can also be shared globally thanks to the Open Science protocol repository.
Reporting and compliance
Benefit from the pharmaceutical standards (FDA 21 CFR Part 11) and get access to audit trails. Data protection levels can be tailored to meet institute IT and legal requirements, including local install on institute servers.
Easy to use
Hivebench’s intuitive layout means even someone new to Electronic Lab Notebooks (ELNs) can quickly learn to prepare, analyse and share data. Hivebench can be accessed everywhere on the web (PC, Mac, Linux) or via iOS devices.
Hivebench cuts research data management time significantly by facilitating rapid protocol management, data entry, and data sharing, and retrieval of experimental processes and results. Previous protocols and results are easy to locate because the data are searchable.
Improves data sharing
Through Hivebench, life scientists can access shared protocols and reagent databases, making knowledge management far easier. Hivebench also enables straightforward export of data as PDFs and integrates with Mendeley Data repository and institutional repositories, simplifying the publication of datasets.
Hivebench helps institutions meet individual and institutional compliance requirements. Research results are easily traceable, with full transparency regarding protocol and data creation and access.
Preserves institutional data securely
Local installation of Hivebench allows for direct integration with an institutional data repository, securing long-term archiving of experiment data. When researchers change labs, their experimental results and procedures are preserved, so institutions store research knowledge.
Helps track team activity
Hivebench helps PIs and lab managers keep track of activity in their lab. Useful features, such as dedicated alerts, let them know when they need to respond to requests. Life scientists maintain full control of what is shared with whom through secure and efficient workflows.
Why use an Electronic Lab Notebook
Working with a paper notebook poses challenges for Life Scientists in the workflow. Only an Electronic Lab notebook can give structure to data records, ensuring re-usability and reproducibility, and make it easier to share and preserve information.
