Edinburgh, Scotland (PRWEB) May 23, 2011
Axiope is pleased to announce the launch of eCAT 4.0, a flexible electronic lab notebook which now includes a full sample management capability.
Chief Executive Rory Macneil said, “Beta testers gave 4.0 a big thumbs up. Sample management is the remaining feature they wanted to make eCAT a killer app. PIs tell us eCAT 4.0 is saving their lab members a huge amount of time, and that it has become an essential part of the lab fabric.”
In the webinar launching eCAT 4.0, Kevin Cauchi from the College of Literature, Science and the Arts at the University of Michigan said, "eCAT is affordable, unlike 99% of the systems we looked at. Also, it’s web based, and it’s very flexible. Other solutions make you modify the way you work; eCAT let’s you work the way you already work, just in an electronic format.“
Matt Nicotra from the Starzl Transplantation Institute at the University of Pittsburgh said, "I introduced my research technician to eCAT and after one day she said, 'It's way better than the paper notebook and spreadsheets I've been using'. She's really jazzed up about it!"
