Atrium Research Announces Fifth Edition of Landmark Report on Electronic Laboratory Notebooks

Wilton, Connecticut USA (Sep 12, 2011) - Atrium Research, the leading scientific informatics market research organization, announced today the release of the fifth edition of company’s landmark report, Electronic Laboratory Notebooks: A Foundation for Scientific Knowledge Management. First published in 2004, this new edition of the comprehensive ELN market analysis examines technology, requirements, best practices, legal issues, benefits, industry trends, and products. Called the “definitive document on ELN” by Indiana University’s School of Informatics, the 716 page study includes over 200 pages dedicated to reviewing the latest ELN software products from major suppliers; over 600 tables and figures illustrate key points.

"The strong demand for ELN continues unabated with a record number of new vendor installations in the last twelve months," says Michael H Elliott, CEO of Atrium Research. "With over US$230MM in product and services sales forecasted for 2012, ELN is now a major informatics category.”

The total available market for ELN software is over US$ 2.0 billion with less than 10% penetrated by commercial offerings. The dynamic nature of biopharmaceutical R&D is helping drive new sales for increases in efficiency, knowledge re-purposing, and to build collaborative ecosystems between partners. As biopharmaceuticals continue to lead adoption, new markets, such as food and beverage and chemicals are quickly accelerating ELN utilization. This is in stark contrast to the academic and government markets where sales continue to be anemic.
