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. This automatically creates a complete record of research activity, reducing researchers’ time and effort, aiding with process optimisation and increasing accuracy and reproducibility of scientific data.
Founded in 2013 and launched in 2015, Labstep has built a stable and robust platform that has been delivering a safe and reliable service to both academia and industry. In line with Labstep’s mission to have a tangible positive impact on the scientific community, the platform is free and forever will be for academia. Sustained by the Labstep for Enterprise business model, Labstep is able to offer a stable platform with unlimited storage space to academia without charge.
Since launching, the platform is now used at over 900 universities around the world, including Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard and MIT. Rapid organic adoption has also seen Labstep chosen as the recommended platform to all RebelBio and IndieBio portfolio companies and multiple high profile institute-wide deployments, including the Francis Crick Institute in London.
