As part of a focus on developing precision therapies for patients with kidney diseases, Goldfinch Bio had introduced an on-premise electronic lab notebook (ELN) which was used primarily as a document repository.
The system didn’t work as intended and the company was disappointed in the system’s performance. Goldfinch Bio also experienced issues concerning the level of service and support provided, with the cascading number of problems highlighting the need to quickly move to a more reliable informatics solution and provider. Goldfinch Bio also considered what capabilities, which their on-premise ELN was not providing, should be added with a new solution.
Goldfinch Bio re-evaluated their requirements and introduced The IDBS E-Workbook Cloud platform, which runs on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud.
“One of the drivers for us, in addition to looking for a higher level of service, was adding capabilities that we knew we would need as a dynamic, growing company that we didn’t have previously. In particular, a big need we wanted to fill was a scalable assay database,” said Adam Tebbe, Senior Director of Informatics & IT, Goldfinch Bio.
“E-WorkBook not only offered just the standard ELN features, but also had the ability to actually load and aggregate the data together across studies and average assay endpoints for replicate measurements.”
