The Jackson Laboratory Researchers Will Keep Their Labs In Sync With Labguru
Today, The Jackson Laboratory (JAX) has licensed Labguru for research documentation, project management, and inventory tracking.
The Jackson Laboratory is an independent, nonprofit biomedical research institution and National Cancer Institute-designated Cancer Center based in the US. Employing 1,700 staff, its mission is to discover precise genomic solutions for disease and empower the global biomedical community in the shared quest to improve human health.
Labguru will be used by researchers at two JAX locations: the new Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine in Farmington, Conn., and the headquarters campus in Bar Harbor, Maine.
Commonly, inventory databases are separated from experimental data and electronic lab notebooks. With Labguru, researchers at JAX will be able to seamlessly link specimen inventories to the experiments they are used in. Labguru’s web app will offer their researchers flexible e-notebooks, shared inventories and intuitive messaging features for better lab documentation and communication.
Jonathan Gross, the founder of Labguru says:
“JAX researchers have had an incredible impact on biomedical research and advancing human health over almost nine decades, and it’s extremely exciting to think about Labguru’s supporting these discoveries. Having JAX see that Labguru can make their research even better–through faster and easier collaboration and streamlined data management–is a distinguished recognition and important validation of our mission.”
Many major pharmaceutical companies, biotechnology companies, research hospitals, individual academic labs and entire institutions are already using Labguru’s ELN and LIMS system. You can find out more about Labguru on their website, or you can follow them on Twitter, @Labguru.
