We’re delighted to share news from our portfolio company BioData, who today announced their newest customer – Technion-Israel Institute of Technology’s Medical School. The deal will involve making Labguru, a lightweight lab management tool and BioData’s flagship product, available to all of the research labs in the Rappaport Faculty of Medicine

Technion is the oldest university in Israel and is ranked one of the top science and technology universities in Israel and Europe. Their move to adopt Labguru shows the university’s interest in increasing the productivity of its researchers, enabling better communication between its research faculty and enable more efficient research. 

From the official press release, “We are continuously seeking ways to support our faculty leverage scientific talent and resources to the maximum degree. Based upon the past few years of staff utilizing BioData’s services, the faculty found Labguru delivers a much needed competitive edge to our labs’ management and student mentorship,” says Professor Eliezer Shalev, dean of the Technion Medical School.

Labguru’s web service is a collaborative lab and research system that helps academic labs plan experiments, track progress on projects and milestones, share results, organize their protocols and data, and manage inventories. The tool is currently in use by over 35,000 researchers to simplify their lab experience and better manage their day-to-day research. For more on Labguru, visit their product page or their website.
