Design Principles

Generic Elements, Segments, and Datasets are organized by layers and fields.

Generic Elements, Segments, and Datasets are structured using Components, which are introduced as layers and fields. Each generic element, segment, or dataset has the capacity to encompass multiple layers, and within each layer, there is the potential for multiple fields to be present. This hierarchical arrangement allows for a flexible and comprehensive organization of data and information.

What is Element, Segement, Dataset?

In case you are not familiar with the terms Element, Segment, and Dataset, here is a brief overview:

  • Element: An element is a fundamental enetity which represent an essential aspect within your domain. For example, the sample element or reaction element in Chemotion ELN.
  • Segment: A segment is a distinct section that usually has its own identifiable characteristics. You can use it to represent a specific subset of an element.
  • Dataset: Within the system, a predefined segment named "Analyses" is provided to capture analysis results. The dataset of the analysis comprises individual data points. Additionally, through integration with the ChemConverter service, metadata extraction from raw files is automatically triggered, facilitating mapping into the dataset.

Roles and Resources

🎨 Designer Role

The Designer role is dedicated to creating templates that align with specific applications. These templates serve as the foundation for user interfaces. Take a moment to explore the Designer View and uncover the possibilities that await you!

🔬 User Role

Users are individuals who can choose from a range of pre-designed templates, each meticulously crafted by Designers to suit different applications. Visit the User View and delve into the available functionalities.


With the transition from our beta version to the official release version, we're thrilled to introduce a groundbreaking transformation. We have redefined the roles to enhance clarity and streamline user interactions. This new approach divides users into two distinct roles: Designer and User, each with specific responsibilities and permissions tailored to their needs.
