LINCOLN, Neb., Nov 12, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Celerion, the premier provider of innovative early stage drug development solutions, announces implementation of the electronic laboratory notebook in our global bioanalytical network.

Celerion designed and implemented Labnotes, a commercially available electronic laboratory notebook system to standardize bioanalytical processes and improve documentation consistency for all studies.

Clients benefit from faster access to data and improved information quality due to centralized data repositories. Real time data integrity eliminates manual calculations and sources of potential error.

The electronic laboratory notebook has built-in calculations for critical aspects of the bioanalytical workflow, standardizing everything from reference standards, to instrument and pipette calibration. The system increases consistency and significantly reduces sources of manual error. The electronic laboratory notebook is validated to OECD GLP and FDA 21 CFR Part 11 computerized system regulatory requirements.

"The implementation of the electronic laboratory notebook continues to demonstrate Celerion's commitment to leveraging innovative technologies to provide our clients faster access to higher quality data," said Susan Thornton, President and CEO of Celerion.
