The digital evolution

of your lab notebook

labfolder is an electronic lab notebook that enables researchers to record findings and make new discoveries. By reinventing the traditional paper lab notebook, our productivity & collaboration platform makes it easier to create, find, share, discuss & validate research data as a team.

1 Data management made easy

All your data in one place

From experiment planning to data collection, record and organize all your laboratory work in labfolder. Add texts, tables, images, experimental parameters and upload documents of all formats to your lab notebook. Our open API can integrate laboratory devices, making lab automation a reality.

Structure your lab notebook according to what you need

Labfolder is a highly customizable electronic lab notebook that adapts to your research and not the other way around. Create unlimited entries, projects, folders, and templates to add your data. Take advantage of our App Store to further enhance your ELN with third-party or home-made apps.

Take your lab notebook anywhere you go

Access your digital lab notebook from our cloud system or your organization’s server. Whether you are attending a conference or doing temporary work in a new laboratory, view and update your experiment notes at your convenience.

2 Building successful collaborations

Manage all your collaborations in labfolder

Create and share projects with your team members and external collaboration partners. Define which researchers can input data in shared projects that are available in real time to all collaborators. By having all lab archives in a single platform, you can easily start writing your next publications.

Create and reuse laboratory protocols

Create a shared database of protocols, templates or SOPs that your team can use in their research. Easily integrate them in the lab notebook and avoid repetitive data entry. Custom share settings allow you ensure that your protocols are only available to the scientists you select.

Share & discuss your data

Share and discuss data within your team using our communication tools. Invite researchers to your projects and record all the details of your next big scientific breakthrough in a single place that is accessible to the people you trust.

3 Manage your team

Used by laboratories of all sizes

Whether you are a small biotech startup or a large research institution, you can re-create the structure of your organization in labfolder. Detailed user share settings ensure that each individual scientist has access to the right content and nothing else.

A platform that adjusts to your team

labfolder adapts to the constant flow of scientists joining and leaving your group by storing all your experiment notes in your group folder. Individual licenses can be recycled and content of previous members will be easy to retrieve.

Assign and monitor tasks

Maintaining a lab functional requires a workflow of tasks that are shared amongst the entire team. In labfolder, you can assign tasks to your team members and be updated on their progress without the need to leave your electronic lab notebook.

4 Comply to industry standards

Data integrity is in our DNA

As scientists, we know that data quality defines the success of our research. labfolder’s lab book safeguards the integrity of your data recordings thanks to features such as automated time stamps, full audit trail, and deletion control.

ISO, FDA and GxP compliance

Laboratories may be subjected to different regulatory guidelines, as well as specific requirements from funding agencies. We have you covered – labfolder is used by thousands of scientists that are compliant with ISO standards (such as ISO 9001, ISO 13485, ISO 15189 and ISO 17025), GxP (GMP & GLP), HIPAA and FDA CFR 21 Part 11.

Secure and reliable

Whether you choose to use our cloud servers with state-of-the-art data security infrastructure or install labfolder on your own servers, labfolder offers encrypted communication between your computer and our platform, ensuring that your data is 100% secure.

5 Control your inventory

Inventory management directly in the ELN

Manage all your commercial and lab-generated materials in labfolder. Create unlimited Material Databases with custom attributes, assuring that your inventory is compatible with your lists of chemicals, antibodies, plasmids, samples, reagents etc… Update and edit items and let everyone know when an item is out of stock.

Tracking each item from your MDB

Cite inventory items in your lab notebook entries and easily track their usage across all your team’s projects. Our Material Database also includes item versioning, so you will always know which version was used in each experiment.

Shared & private MDBs

Define custom share settings for each Material Database and assure that each inventory is accessed only by the scientists you want. Private MDBs can also be created so that each user can keep track of personal stocks.

6 Provide structure to your data

Standardize your lab’s experimental recordings

Experimental parameters are consistently recorded throughout all your projects and entries. Structure your team’s data, improve its integrity, and retrieve it faster.

Ideal for protocols and templates

Replicate entire experimental procedures using data elements and easily share them with your team as templates. Design easily understandable templates improve the onboarding of new scientists.

Unified search with units conversion

For the first time your laboratory notebook understands scientific units and makes automatic conversions when looking for your data. Don’t worry if in one experiment you typed 0.5 ml and in another 500 ul of a specific sample or reagent, labfolder will retrieve both when you search.
