Thanks to more comprehensive data entry, quick feedback times, and intuitive usability, IDBS’ E-WorkBook has helped Bayer achieve operational excellence across its laboratories, saving the business time and money.

Since introducing E-WorkBook, Bayer has decreased the lag times for experiments and increased the speed in which experiments can be completed by up to three hours. E-WorkBook has helped Bayer overcome a number of other common laboratory issues, such as quality of data entry and the speed feedback can be obtained, thanks to an easily accessible, user-friendly interface – ensuring all information is in one place, and in a consistent format.

Join our webinar with Oliver Hesse (Director Lab Automation and Data Management, Bayer Healthcare LLC) and Will Scott (Senior Consultant, IDBS) to find out how Bayer is continuing to use E-WorkBook to improve lab practices, increase laboratory efficiency and build a laboratory environment suited for business needs both now and in the future.

This webinar will include:

  • Examples of how E-WorkBook has improved laboratory practices for Bayer on a day-to-day basis with real-life case studies
  • Explain how Bayer managed the roll-out process of the new technology
  • Explore what laboratory improvements Bayer can expect to see in future thanks to the advancement of technologies, such as laboratory automation


E-WorkBook is used by 22 of the top 25 pharmaceutical companies around the world, serving over 50,000 researchers in over 25 countries. Sign up for the webinar today to learn about how you can join them.
