✔ A comprehensive electronic lab notebook that records all elements of experimentation.
✔ Master protocols can be associated with notebook entries and altered on an experiment-by-experiment basis without affecting the master.
✔ Step-by-step experiment interface to run through procedures and record deviations in real-time on desktop and mobile devices.
✔ Flexible fields allow customisation of notes and results.
✔ Supports any file format including .dna .gb .gbk .fa, and has integrations for Microsoft Office, Molecular sketcher, SnapGene and multiple programming softwares.
✔ All activity - including electronic signatures - is time-stamped to ensure the integrity of the audit trail.
✔ Copy-paste or drag and drop text from existing documents or build documents from scratch.
✔ Automatic step recognition converts plain text into step-by-step protocols.
✔ Tables, timers and inventory items generate enriched documents. Embedded files support any file format including .dna .gb .gbk .fa.
✔ Flexible edit and access rights allow protocols to be shared to workspaces and directly with colleagues.
✔ All edits are tracked in a version-controlled changelog to aid process optimisation tracking. Previous versions can easily be restored.
✔ Search, filter and tagging functionality of large inventory libraries.
✔ Tracked information include location and amount in stock. Flexible fields allow for customisation of item information.
✔ Labstep generates unique IDs and QR codes for every item and integrate with instruments such as barcode scanners.
✔ Setup is easy – items are easily batch imported and assigned metadata fields.
✔ Item availability and order request status tracked for procurement administration.
✔ Flexible edit and access rights allow inventory items to be shared in workspaces or directly with colleagues.
✔ A Labstep workspace is a secure digital space where you can neatly pull together experiments, protocols and inventory.
✔ Create shared workspaces to share experiment details, version-controlled documents and results or inventory libraries with colleagues and collaborators.
✔ Send information on Labstep directly to colleagues via email or sharelink.
✔ Co-author experiment records with real-time progress updates.
✔ Full control of access rights and permissions.
✔ In-house integrations with ChemDraw, SnapGene and LabVIEW.
✔ Automatically upload data files from a wide variety of instruments to Labstep via the open API.
✔ The custom-built Folder Watcher program instantly uploads files saved in remote desktop folders.
✔ Integrations with R and Python give control of Labstep records from within the programming language.
✔ The Labstep support team helps users connect new analysis tools and software.
✔ Uses less data. An app which takes close to 1 GB as a native app, can be reduced to about 50 MBs when made an PWA.
✔ No updates required. You always have access to the latest version. No need to update every now and then.
✔ No install required. These are simple web-pages, no need to install Labstep to start using.
✔ Sharing is easy. You can share a PWA with its URL.
✔ You just need a browser. You do not need a particular operating system e.g. only IOS or android. PWAs work on any device and any browser.
