Let's write your first experiment note in LabNote!
First, create My Project in the LabSpace. Then, when you click the
+ button and choose
Create New Note from the project, you now have your first LabNote ready!
Write in LabNote
Click and open the new LabNote file.
Prepare Material blocks
Before you record the experiment, you need to prepare Material blocks from the Lab Inventory. There are five types of materials: Chemicals, Nucleic acids, Animals, Organisms, and Cell lines.
- On the left sidebar, click
+ Add material buttonto add Material blocks.
- For example, for Chemicals, you can search different chemicals in
- Then, load the chemical materials you want (Ex: Search “Iron(III) acetylacetonate”).
- You can edit basic information about the material manually.
- Then, by clicking the
Addbutton, you can now find the new material block in the Lab Inventory.
Now, you need to create a new Procedure section. In the Procedure, you can add Process and Material blocks.
+ Add procedure buttonin Bench to create a new Procedure section.
- In the Procedure, write experiment steps in texts.
- For example, you can write a synthesis experiment like “Synthesis of zinc-doped iron oxide nanoparticle.”
- Now, you have the first Procedure section, which is labeled as "1" automatically.
Add Process blocks
Next, you need to create a new Process block to record the actions of your experiment. The Process block is created within the Procedure section. You can add Material blocks in the Process blocks.
+ Add process buttonright under the Procedure section to add a new Process block.
- Then, you can see the right sidebar appears for adding the new Process block.
- You can choose among the pre-defined Processes or generate a new Process (Ex. Try creating "Heating").
- You can freely add or remove conditions in the Process blocks.
Add Material blocks via drag-and-drop
In the Process block (in the Procedure section), you can now add the Material blocks you prepared at the beginning. Simply drag the Material blocks in the Lab Inventory and drop them into the Drop zone in the Process block to record.
