Accelrys’ Capture is a mobile multimedia capture application that facilitates rapid, paperless recording at the laboratory bench, significantly improving workflow flexibility, efficiency and productivity. It allows scientists to work more intuitively, efficiently and productively with laboratory informatics software like the proprietary Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN). The application’s easy-to-use interface provides a straightforward and secure way for scientists to enter information, view procedures, capture data from laboratory instrumentation by using small mobile devices and leverage built-in functionality, such as cameras that facilitate both the recording and sharing of experimental findings. By putting procedures and data directly into scientists’ hands, the application offers increased lab efficiency through the ability to enter data quickly and look up procedures using a single, small mobile device. The ability to make instant procedural annotations at the bench without requiring scientists to document changes at remote computers outside the lab also adds to time management. Additionally, the platform improves staff motivation by being able to work flexibly and intuitively with the focus on science using modern state-of-the-art mobile devices. Other features include: enhanced data quality through direct data entry at the bench where data is created and observations made; and reduced cycle times by removing bottlenecks in laboratory processes.
