Kinematik Inc., a global leader in R&D collaboration and knowledge management tools, today announced the launch of an Electronic Laboratory Notebook (ELN) built on Microsoft SharePoint 2010. Kinematik's ELN extends SharePoint's functionality to include experiments, lab notes, publishing of experiments to Microsoft Word and PDF, automated processes and integration with lab equipment, thus providing unprecedented access through a state-of-the-art platform well known to the R&D community.
"We are pleased to have this key alliance with Microsoft to deliver an ELN we believe every scientist should use." said Michael Jarjour, CEO, Kinematik. "Our SharePoint based ELN can be leveraged by R&D organizations to allow scientific data to be collected, stored, backed up, reported and protected for IP and other purposes. We are very excited to announce this rollout to complement our suite of R&D software products used by industry, academia and government for over 10 years."
"Scientists and researchers today need to be in charge of their own data in real time, and can no longer rely on paper-based notes or basic collaboration tools as methods to accelerate research and discovery." said Michael Naimoli, worldwide managing director, Microsoft Health and Life Sciences. "An Electronic Laboratory Notebook built on the SharePoint 2010 platform offers a compelling value proposition, with necessary capabilities including enterprise search, metadata management and social media tools, resulting in a strong basis for collaboration across an entire R&D organization."
KineMatik and Microsoft will co-host several ELN road shows open to the R&D community. Further details and registration can be accessed under "News & Events." (http://www.kinematik.com/index.cfm/page/currentnews/id/13)
