In mid-January, my article on the paperless lab came out in “Lab Manager Magazine,” partly because they needed an article on this topic, but I accepted mainly to help promote the LRIG NE (Laboratory Robotics Interest Group – New England)/Boston area LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System)/Laboratory Informatics meeting in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA on February 10th, 2010.

The previous blog post on this can be found at:

The meeting notice can be found at:

You should attend this meeting if you want to hear more about strategies for implementing ELNs at your company (R&D or QC), want to hear about a company that created a plan for integrating its laboratory informatics systems (such as LIMS, ELN, CDS and the like), have an interest in evolving instrumentation standards, or merely want to meet others in the Boston/New England area who might be doing similar things to you.
