Lab Archives


LabArchives is an electronic lab notebook (ELN) software hosted on the cloud and is accessible from any device with an internet connection. LabArchives allows researchers to replace their paper notebooks, making notebook data easily searchable. LabArchives also facilitates sharing among collaborators and promotes common document and protocol storage in the lab. Customizable forms called ‘widgets’ allow researchers to standardize data entry for common experiments and provide tools for freezer box storage and chemical inventory lists.

We have partnered with LabArchives to offer Cincinnati Children’s Research Foundation (CCRF) members access to the LabArchives ELN software.
