Detect and quantify DNA from micro-organisms, which can be (potential) quality parameters for the mushroom substrate production process.

Challenge – Organize the increasing amount of DNA samples to isolation experiments

I’m involved in project-management (internal/external projects), research regarding molecular sciences,enzymatic assays, solid-state fermentation, lab management and up-scaling/fine tuning phase of new products and processes. Therefore, communication with various groups is needed, and is difficult to maintain.

Solution – Samples and experiments are structured and documented in a logical manner

What we really like about eLABJournal is the ease with which you will learn to work with it. Everything is structured and logical. We really appreciate the function in eLABJournal to link DNA samples to isolation experiments and storage information.

Result – Experiments are created and communicated easily with other team members

Working with eLABJournal improved our internal communication and facilitated sharing the outcomes of experiments very easily and clearly. It also made it possible to monitor the work of the students and recommend timely improvements and adjustments when necessary.
