RFID helps scientists protect their work
Researchers and scientists get help from RFID notebooks
Scientists and researchers take a lot of notes. They write down all of the steps they perform in any procedure. They take down the results of experiments. They register observations. They list data.
In fact, scientific laboratories must document their researchers’ work in very specific ways – for example, to secure patents or to prove their developments – and they must carefully keep all of these notebooks, forever. In many cases, laboratories may also have to obey requirements to hold regular physical audits or respect measures requiring compliance with local or federal laws.
Managing all those notebooks in such complicated circumstances can be quite a challenge. RFID has just made it easier for some: now there are RFID-enabled scientific notebooks.
Thanks to RFID, users can easily find any notebook’s current location, and access a history file of where it’s been and who else has worked on it. If a notebook has gotten accidentally misplaced, or if someone needs an older logbook that it not currently being used, then a few quick clicks on a handheld device point the way.
The scientists who use these RFID notebooks can be reassured to know that their work is protected and easy to find.
