“Mbook: An ELN for chemists, designed by chemists”
We are delighted to start the 2019 Webinar Series with a presentation about Mbook. Our colleague Dr. Mark Dixon will go through the main features, showing all you can do with the ELN.
Usability is the key to any good software. Especially software that digitizes what used to be something easily done on paper. Join us for a webinar that introduces Mbook, Mestrelab’s Electronic Laboratory Notebook (ELN), that mimics the written form as closely as possible, and follows the natural steps any chemist makes when recording their daily journal at the bench.
A chemist’s trusty paper laboratory notebook works for the individual, but fails at the team or group level. Mbook allows for shared projects that allow colleagues to collate their work for easier correlation of trends and interpretation of results. Mbook can store and visualize spectroscopic results, such as NMR or LC/MS, in native format, where others force a downgrade to PDF. Stockroom and inventory facilities are built-in, and everything is hosted on the web.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER
After growing up in Manchester, England, Mark spent seven joyous years at Nottingham University playing drums and generally having a good time, while occasionally studying chemistry before graduating with a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry.
Mark cut his teeth in Pharmaceutical R&D as an NMR Spectroscopy specialist at Fisons, then Astra, which finally morphed into AstraZeneca, all while sitting at the same desk.
A fascination with the science of NMR eventually got the better of Mark, and so began an ongoing adventure to California, firstly with Varian in Palo Alto working with the Applications team, followed by a move to Marketing in the role of Software Product Manager. After the sad demise of Varian, Mark discovered the unpredictable frontier of benchtop NMR spectroscopy as Product Manager for Thermo Fisher Scientific’s picoSpin NMR spectrometer, before starting at Mestrelab Research in late 2016.
