Signals Notebook - Which Version Is Right For Me?

PerkinElmer Signals™ Notebook is the cloud-based electronic lab notebook (ELN) and scientific collaboration platform for today’s scientists. With embedded ChemDraw to support synthetic chemistry workflows, drag and drop capture of a wide variety of electronic data files, lightning fast data entry and search, and a modern, highly responsive design, Signals Notebook is quickly becoming the preferred cloud-based ELN for discerning chemists and researchers alike.

Signals Notebook Private Cloud provides all of the functionality offered in the Standard version, yet provides control over mandatory updates. Software updates are not executed automatically, enabling organizations to achieve greater control over when and how changes are made, as typically required for a validated environment. Signals Notebook Private Cloud seamlessly supports the validation of processes used in controlled workflows. Additional test environments can also be provided.

Signals Notebook Standard is designed to provide scientists with the tools they need to design, record and share their experiments. Signals Notebook provides organizations with peace of mind, delivering a business friendly framework to support the security, configurability and administrative capabilities demanded by today’s leading research and industrial organizations. Organizations have control over sharing of experiments both throughout their enterprise and external to their organization, such as allowing controlled access to external partners. Administrators can define metadata to be captured along with experiments, and the access rules based upon them such as setting up project or auto-numbering rules for experiments. Organizations also retain ownership of the data when researchers move on.

Signals Notebook Individual provides access to the same data capture and scientific workflow capabilities as PerkinElmer Signals Notebook Standard, but is designed to facilitate a more flexible sharing and collaborative model where individual researchers maintain ownership and control of their own data. Ideally suited for researchers who want to share with a wide variety of users inside and outside of their organizations (such as researchers at universities), Signals Notebook Individual Edition is only available to licensees of ChemOffice® Professional, our premiere chemical sketching and scientific productivity suite. Signals Notebook Individual Edition provides a lower cost entry into the modern scientific collaboration platform of PerkinElmer Signals Notebook Standard for users who do not require organizational control.
