A better alternative to pen and paper

Your notes and data need to be organised and accurate, but most importantly, not take up too much time. Is your traditional notebook doing that for you? Let’s take a look.

Paper notebook
Simplified data management
Labstep allows you to tie together an experiment notebook, inventory management, instrument and software integrations and collaboration, all in a single place.


Inventory tracking
Labstep offers tailored functionality for inventory tracking. Labstep tracks location, amount in stock and other metadata and generates unique IDs and QR codes for inventory tracking. Inventory items can be tied to experiments and protocols.


File format compatibility
Attach any file format, including images, charts, graphs, links, code and even video files onto Labstep.


Search and filter function
No need to scan through page after page of your notes, Labstep also allows you to quickly search and filter by author, keywords or by date ranges.


Instrument integration
By connecting Labstep with your equipment, you are saving time that would usually have been spent on uploading, downloading, and transferring files between devices using a USB or hard drive.


Real-time data updates
All work is instantly saved securely in the cloud: experiment deviations are recorded in real-time; data is uploaded from instruments in real-time; users collaborate in real-time.


Data archiving
Easy access and enhanced long-term data records in the Cloud ensures future accessibility for other researchers. All data can also be exported to local servers or hard drives.

Easy collaboration
Scientific teams can quickly and efficiently share information in real-time on Labstep. Sharing data in the project context facilitates efficient knowledge transfer and enhances collaboration.


Data security
Labstep data is backed up to two different geographical locations with end to end encryption and is GDPR compliant.

For regulated industries and organizations, electronic collection of data falls under regulations as 21 CFR Part 11. The Labstep audit trails and controlled access can help you become compliant.


Labstep’s progressive web app is accessible on any device and from any browser, meaning it can be used equally at work, at home or during travels.


Data structure consistency
Using a digital system like Labstep makes it easier to set up a common structure for data, or even a common language throughout the team.
