ArxLab ® Notebook Features

All users can enter information in free-text sections or draw down preconfigured protocol or summary templates to document their experiments. All Microsoft Office, PDF, image, instrument, analytical, and text files can be attached to experiments. Push-button PDF-rendering of experiments yields free-text and file attachment data into a comprehensive report for downloading and sharing. Notes and comments can be added to experiments, images can be annotated, and common protocols can be templated for quick population of free-text boxes in all experiments. Experiments can be copied from one notebook to another, as well as be linked to any project or registration object. Activities related to experiments appear in the user’s notification box, and quick, efficient keyword searching across all free-text and file attachment data ensures comprehensive search capability across the notebook. Signing and witnessing capability is standard across all experiments.

Chemists enjoy the ease of use of industry-standard ChemDraw for drawing and representation of chemical structures and reactions directly in chemistry experiments. Marvin JS and other drawing tools can be used as well. Details of reactants and products, such as systematic name, chemical formula, molecular weight, and more are automatically populated into a stoichiometry table via ChemAxon chemical intelligence, and the stoichiometry table has auto-calculation and auto-naming capability. Reagents, solvents, and catalyst databases can be added to the notebook for easy population into reactions. Reactants, reagents, and products can be registered, and final products can be placed into inventory, with the push of a button in the stoichiometry table. Chemical searching (structure, substructure, superstructure, and similarity), parallel synthesis, defined vocabulary lists, CAS number lookups, compound tracking, and regulatory checks on compounds are available in chemistry experiments.
