What is an electronic lab notebook (ELN)?
An electronic lab notebook (ELN) is a digital version of the conventional paper lab notebook used for scientific research. It is designed to provide an easy way of recording and accessing research data. Scientists use ELNs like SciNote to improve productivity, research data integrity, and team collaboration.

SciNote Reviews & Testimonials
Join 90k+ scientists from all the world who already do their research faster, more accurate with SciNote Electronic Lab Notebook
“Easy to use electronic lab notebook”
I really liked how easy to use and organized Scinote is. The function that allows you to categorize the molecules and cells tested in an assay is really useful to then search quickly the data you are interested in. The possibility to attach excel files and power point presentations make really easy to show summaries of the experiments.
“Good bye paper – hello digitalization”
I really like to have everything I need in the lab (protocols, experimental setup, inventories and results) in one place and to be able to access it from anywhere. No more paper sheets with notes and printed results that have to be put into a paper lab notebook. Not to mention the fact, that the SciNote team is very friendly and always available for questions.
“Easy to use, always improving, and great customer support – SciNote’s great!”
The customer support has been and continues to be excellent. The team at SciNote has gone above and beyond to listen to and take my colleagues’ feedback seriously; we’ve seen many of our suggestions implemented over a year, and SciNote has continued to evolve to suit our company’s needs.
