Loveland, OH (PRWEB) March 8, 2006
Array BioPharma has implemented the PatentSafe® application from Amphora Research Systems, a recognised leader in Electronic Laboratory Notebook solutions, to better support the research activities of 200 scientists. Array BioPharma personnel can now secure Array’s original scientific experiments through digitally signed and preserved electronic records, and additionally have access to a searchable, shareable repository of research activities.
Array BioPharma is using Amphora’s PatentSafe® application to create secure electronic records which are then signed and witnessed with digital signatures, thus eliminating the use of bound lab notebooks. Array BioPharma scientists use the Cambridgesoft’s E-Notebook front end and associated chemistry tools to assemble the scientific record.
“Amphora’s PatentSafe has enabled us to migrate from bound laboratory notebooks, to a computer based system with digital signatures,” said Jim Rizzi, Director, Computational Technology, Array BioPharma. “The seamless integration of our chemistry and biology tools with PatentSafe® helps to ensure that records are submitted and signed in a timely fashion.”
Simon Coles, CTO of Amphora Research Systems, said: “Array has been a great company to work with on all levels. Together we have successfully integrated PatentSafe with their existing CambridgeSoft software. This has allowed easy and reliable translation of not only the chemistry but also the Microsoft Excel and other documents stored in their e-Notebook into PDF’s suitable for long-term storage. When all those impacted by a project can clearly see the immediate benefits it is always satisfying.”
“For Amphora this is another example of the tight integration we am to achieve between our best of breed patent evidence system and a leading discipline specific front end solution,” continued Simon.
