The Lab Manager Informatics Resource Guide 

Authors: R. Ackerman, A. DePalma, J. Joyce, M. May


Modern informatics systems come in a variety of different types and configurations to suit any
researcher’s needs

Laboratories are awash in data. The two main data management packages in use today are laboratory information management systems (LIMS) for structured data such as pH values or sample weights and electronic laboratory notebooks (ELNs) for unstructured data such as images and chemical formulas. To simplify, a LIMS downloads data from a liquid chromatograph without the need to copy values manually, while an ELN replaces paper notebooks for more creative work. Together, these products represent the cornerstones of the “paperless laboratory.”
