What is Labstep?

Labstep is a next-generation solution for scientific research combining ELN, LIMS, LES and Order Management in a single connected and collaborative environment.

Based on the team’s frustrations with fragmented ELNs and LIMS and data storage systems, Labstep offers features that streamline research data documentation and knowledge transfer by capturing real-time process data. It automatically creates a complete audit trail of research activity, reducing researchers’ time and effort, aiding process optimisation and increasing productivity.

For who?

Founded in 2013 and launched in 2015, Labstep has built a stable and robust platform that delivers a safe and reliable service to both academia and industry. Since launching, over 900 universities are currently using the platform worldwide, 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.
