Labstep is a free, flexible research environment that connects electronic notebook functionality, inventory management, applications and data in one collaborative workspace. Based on the team’s personal frustrations in the lab with existing ELNs and LIMS, Labstep offers features that streamline research data documentation and knowledge transfer by capturing real-time process data.
Labstep is more than just an electronic lab notebook. It’s an all-in-one data and inventory platform that keeps track of your research, manages your inventory and integrates with your favourite analysis softwares. The platform is designed to reduce researchers’ time and effort, aid with process optimisation and increasing accuracy and reproducibility of scientific data.
The platform is free and forever will be for academia, so that the features are accessible to all within the scientific community. Labstep is able to offer a stable platform with unlimited storage space to academia without charge, sustained by the Labstep for Enterprise business model.
Since launching, the platform has been adopted by researchers at over 900 universities around the world, including Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard and MIT. Rapid organic adoption has resulted in multiple high-profile institute-wide deployments, the most notable being the Francis Crick Institute in London, Europe’s largest biomedical research institute.
