MULTI CENTRE RESEARCH
One central Ldot to manage all participating organisations
Ldot; Focus on data and workflow
Conducting scientific studies can be very challenging, in particular if you take into account all relevant privacy and security related laws and guidelines. Ldot can help you with all logistics, so you can focus on your actual research data. Ldot improves the quality of your study by helping you to conduct all steps from your study protocol, whilst being compliant with laws and guidelines like GDPR and GCP. Ldot is suitable for studies of any size.
Reduce the risk of data leaks and data loss
Ldot has been designed to store personal information of all your subjects, conforming to GDPR. By using Ldot, you can be certain that the personal data of your study subjects are stored safe and secure. We believe that it is important to store personal data separate from research data.
Minimise team effort
Ldot will help you to keep track of all your subjects and the steps they have to undergo, by instantly presenting the relevant information. No need to keep your own agenda, Ldot shows you what to do, for whom, at a given time point. An increasing number of actions can automatically be conducted for you, for example sending scheduled e-mail and SMS messages.
Safeguard and standardise your study protocol
By schematizing your study protocol in Ldot, you will maintain full control over execution of all steps in the protocol, without the risk of individual interpretation.
Ldot is suitable for studies of any size but indispensable for multi center research projects. The standardised protocol will be conducted exactly similar, disregarding the location it is conducted from. Extended user management helps you to be sure that research staff only has access to steps and subjects they are allowed to see.
Ldot has been designed to be the central linchpin between other relevant software solutions in the field of scientific research, like data collection tools, imaging storage tools and electronic health record software (EPD). Ldot therefore exchanges data with a growing number of other applications.
Specifically for studies containing multiple appointments, an extended planning module is developed in close collaboration with De Maastricht Studie. This Ldot-extension helps you to plan appointments, taking into account available time slots, and allowing you to view and reschedule in an intuitive calendar view.
Call-me-in and Informed Consent
It is also possible to have built study specific websites to enroll subjects or gather informed consent. These websites can be tailored to your specific needs and styling. Relevant information can be used in the Ldot workflow.
Ldot is trusted in dozens of studies for more than a decade, and is now available for research teams worldwide.

Some studies that already benefit from the use of Ldot
The Healthy Brain Study aims to discover how the brain works and how the brain effects our daily lives. This is a unique, long-term study carried out by Radboud University, Radboudumc and the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, together with other organizations, and volunteers in their thirties.
The Heart Tissue Bank is a central biobank in which heart tissue of deceased donors is stored for scientific research. This heart tissue can be used to study how a healthy heart functions or what exactly goes wrong in various heart diseases. In this way, diseases can be diagnosed earlier and/or better and better treatments can be made possible. By registering as a donor with the Heart Tissue Bank, people give permission to have their hearts included in this biobank after death.
“Ldot is crucial to monitor and automate
study logistics and significantly reduces
the logistic workload of researchers.”
Michiel T.H.M. Henkens, MD PhD-student, Coordinator Netherlands Heart Tissue Bank
