Ligand-Binding Assays in the 21st Century Laboratory: Recommendations for an Automated Data Interchange Process
For end users, effective laboratory data management is critical to an efficient LBA laboratory in the twenty-first century. An initial step in this direction is to establish an automated data interchange process, resulting in benefits to the entire LBA community. An automated data interchange process will address many issues with respect to efficiency, including adoption of new technology, compliance, data retention, and creation of relationships within the community during its development. For the vendors, an automated data interchange process will provide clear requirements from the end user enabling vendors to create products aligned with customer needs.
Through this paper, the eSolutions team is working to engage the LBA community to participate in the development of an automated data interchange process. We will look to take advantage of social networking avenues to educate, discuss, and recruit the necessary team members required to develop an automated data interchange process. If you are interested in participating in this effort, please look to join the 21st Century Bioanalytical Laboratory group on LinkedIn (www.linkedin.com) where the eSolutions team will be hosting discussions on the process, contact any of the authors, or email the corresponding author…
