Whatever your research field, keep track of all materials and samples used in your lab. Create experimental or computational procedures to share with all lab members.

Lab notebook

Describe your wet-lab or computational experiments and link to the materials, samples and protocols stored in the inventory.

Data management

Make your data FAIR. Store all data connected to your experiments, of any size and format, via the web interface or using background upload scripts, depending on the data size.

BigDataLink

Use openBIS as metadata repository and use our git-like tool to link huge datasets across different locations.
