What makes the Lab7 ESP an Operating System for Your Lab?
Customizable and intuitive sample, experiment, and protocol management enables rapid assessment of lab operations.
Analysis Pipeline Manager
A robust task-graph based pipeline manager enables rapid development and deployment of pipelines using any analysis tools.
Reports & Visualization
Create customized actionable reports from analyzed data and visualize results in genomic context.
The platform’s underlying architecture provides deep provenance, monitoring, and security structures ideal for regulated environments.
Streamlining your lab operations
Utilize your current methods and implement new ones with confidence
Lab7 ESP is a centralized lab data management platform that helps organizations and individual researchers track samples, process data, produce reports, and manage workflows and analysis pipelines – overall increasing sample throughput and freeing space for new opportunity in the lab.
At Lab7, we understand that in most labs, the same samples travel through multiple systems. These disjointed systems become a problem, particularly for lab managers who need holistic insight, IT staff who have to manage the multiple systems, and end users who need specific reports.
So, we took a step back from traditional LIMS data management software and created an end-to-end platform that prioritizes a streamlined workflow, the ability to comply with any standards, and strong data provenance. Lab7 ESP handles data from the time it is collected, through processing, analysis, and reporting, and until the indefinite future when it will be queried years after laboratory studies are complete.
Moreover, we built Lab7 ESP to be flexible. Instead of a rigid software that demands you reorganize and reorient your lab around the way it works, Lab7 ESP integrates easily with existing systems and is designed so that you can configure it to support the proven processes, practices, and regulations of the way you work.

Alphabet Soup: IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, OpEx, CapEx, oh my! Over the last few years, cloud computing has become an integral element of the IT landscape. It’s impossible to discuss new IT deployments without considering how cloud services may play a role. In the Life Sciences, especially with next generation sequencing (NGS), the cloud is regularly[…]
Lab7 Systems will be demonstrating the Lab7 ESP, the Operating System for Your Lab, at the Festival of Genomics next week at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, June 22-24, 2015. We’ll be in Booth 34, and invite you to visit to see live demonstrations of the Lab7 Enterprise Sequencing Platform, and to learn how[…]
If you were unable to attend the Lab7 ESP webinar on June 16, there’s no need to worry! We recorded the proceedings and have made them available to view here. To download more information about the Lab7 ESP, you can visit the Lab7 ESP page on this site, and click the download link at the[…]
Chris Mueller, Ph.D., will provide an overview of Lab7’s Enterprise Sequencing Platform (ESP) software, built to streamline operations of Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) labs by integrating LIMS, analysis, data management, and reporting into a single “operating system” for your lab. In this webinar, Chris will: Discuss the challenges faced by different stakeholders when integrating data-intensive methods[…]
LAB7 SYSTEMS RELEASES CLINICAL ANNOTATION MANAGER FOR LAB7 ESP AND TWO ACCELERATION PROGRAMS New release and programs encourage broader adoption of NGS technologies in academia and clinical practice AUSTIN, TX – April 20, 2015 – Lab7 Systems, Inc., the developer of the Enterprise Sequencing Platform (ESP) for the management of next-generation genome sequencing (NGS) data[…]
With data intensive applications becoming more common in the life sciences, I’m often asked for advice on how to prepare for a career in bioinformatics or transition an existing career to focus on life science applications. A few years back, I responded to a post on Slashdot with some thoughts on bioinformatics career paths. Given[…]
In a previous post, we talked about sequencing as a big data problem, with our focus on the scale of data generated by sequencing instruments. In this post, we’ll look at the problem from the context of biology to help understand the fundamental reasons why sequencing will always be a big data problem. We’ll derive[…]
Today we took the wraps off our new services offerings. Our services are designed to help our customers at critical stages in the evolution of their sequencing environments, those times when a little extra help can lead to a significant return on investment. At Lab7, we’ve assembled a strong team of bioinformaticians and high-performance computing[…]
Today we are taking the wraps off the Lab7 Enterprise Sequencing Platform (ESP), our sequencing informatics platform, and BioBuilds, our small way of giving back the community. Before introducing the products, I want to take a moment and share some of our core values, values that we infuse daily in our design and development efforts: Science is a[…]
In the early days of next-generation sequencing, I was approached by a local R&D group about designing a cluster for their two new SOLiD instruments. The budget was modest – tens of thousands of dollars – and the expectations were high – a run every ten days for each instrument, or one run a week[…]
