Help & Resources
Mbook Analytical connects clients who request analytical services to a team of analysts who can provide them.
Client users are therefore called Analysis Requesters and are organized by groups as part of a client organization in Mbook Analytical.
Team users can be Analysis Manager or Analysts and have inherent and configurable permissions that can be set in the application. These include:
- permissions to manage a team, clients, projects, etc.
- the ability to set up laboratory instruments, services, and inventories
- approve changes in compound structures and properties
- handle compound safety-related information
- submit analytical requests, etc.
With Mbook Analytical you can easily set up your laboratory and define your service offers.
Laboratory setup is typically performed by an Analysis Manager or Analyst with the appropriate permissions. Instruments and instrument components such as injectors, probes, autosamplers, etc., can be added and configured for each specific analytical technique.
A service offer is then defined by selecting the techniques and service types you propose to your clients:
- From a list that is present by default in the application (NMR, MS, EPR, EA, LC, etc.).
- By adding new techniques and service types, which gives you a total flexibility to customize your analytical service offer.
Mbook´s organized and hierarchical structure allows for an easy and flawless handling of customer’s analysis requests:
- Clients’ requests are grouped into projects and handled entirely from the Desk section
- Projects can only be accessed by authorized users
- Analysis requests are labeled with a unique code and a status tag
- Analysis requests are first reviewed by a manager then assigned to an authorized analyst
- Results and related documents can be attached to the request
- Analysis results are reviewed and approved by a manager
- Automatic messages are sent to inform users of the status of the request
- Customers can view their results directly from within the ELN
A compound database with 300+ common reactants and solvents is pre-loaded in your inventory with various general properties, and Health & Safety data sheets.
- Search your compounds
- Create bottles and add them to your stockroom
- Consume your reagents and keep track of your stock!
Mbook is a fully scalable application, with a subscription-based license model that allows you to add users and grow with the tool without the need to upgrade hardware or IT resources.
Hosted on a cloud server provided by Mestrelab and AWS, so your organization does not have to provide the infrastructure. This means:
- You do not need IT capabilities to install, maintain, or update the software.
- You just need a subscription and a web browser (Chrome, Edge, Safari, or Firefox).
- Data will ONLY be available to permitted users, and it will remain secure and confidential.
- No application installation, maintenance, or updates required.
Alternatively, Mbook can be installed on your own server and still be accessible to your users via their browsers. Contact us if you are interested in this type of installation.
