Israeli University Licenses BioData's Labguru to Manage Medical Research Lab Activities

Premium

BioData said this week that the Technion Israel Institute of Technology has purchased Labguru subscriptions for research labs in its Rappaport Family Institute for Research in the Medical Sciences.

BioData's Labguru is a web-based system for planning and managing experiments and projects, personnel, inventories, and data. Labguru accounts are free for individual scientists and subscriptions are available for labs interested in premium collaboration features.

In 2010, Tel Aviv, Israel-based BioData was one of three firms named as a contributor to Macmillan Publishers' subsidiary Digital Science, which was set up to provide software tools and services to scientists, managers, and funders (BI 12/10/2010).
