Integrated Informatics Platform
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.
Streamline your lab operations
Utilize your current methods and implement new ones with confidence
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.
We created a flexible 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.

There is no doubt that well-managed commercial software platforms can be costly from a licensing standpoint. Therefore, many labs elect to build their own data management and provenance systems. However, the teams tasked with developing these tools almost never include the head of the laboratory, who is the single constant member of the lab, especially in academic [...]
The democratization of data-intensive technologies such as next-generation sequencing, mass spec-driven multi-omics workflows, and high-resolution imaging systems is making bioinformatic analysis a required function. In the vast majority of labs, a dedicated staff of highly trained computer scientists handles bioinformatics, given that a biologist or bench scientist typically is not trained on using command line tools created [...]
After reading our previous posts on inefficiency, you might be thinking, “I have a LIMS that takes care of transitioning from the wet lab to analysis for me.” While it is true that you have a LIMS in place, can you think of any LIMS that manages data through bioinformatics and reporting, while maintaining provenance through the [...]
A major agricultural genomics company in Malaysia was facing a significant maintenance burden from on-premises data centers, prompting it to explore cloud-based solutions in late 2016. The company needed to reduce its turnaround time and its computational, storage, and data transfer resources for performing genomic research aimed at developing biofuel alternatives to fossil fuels.
As mentioned in our previous blog post, Stop Managing Your Instruments and Software Platforms Independently, scientific labs are resorting to using a variety of manual methods for data management and collation. As a result, labs often experience poor record keeping regarding the “who, what, when, where, and how” of experiments, effectively making management of data provenance not [...]
We thought that we'd use these middle-of-summer weeks to revisit one of our earlier topics. In this case, it's the first of the list of salient items from our our "Five Strategies to Improve the Efficiency of Your Lab" white paper...
The latest installment of our blog posts on the Lab7 Systems team features our Principal Software Engineer, John Eargle, Ph.D. John was the 4th Lab7ite, having joined about 3 months after the company was founded. Since then, John has toiled away making sure that the Enterprise Science Platform (ESP) not only performs well, but that it [...]
Lab7 Systems was proud to be a Gold Sponsor of this year's Bio-IT World Conference and Expo, which took place May23-25, at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston. The best part was that our booth #563 was right next to the bar...I mean...The best part was seeing the exciting advances in [...]
There are a lot of options today for selecting a cloud partner for bioinformatics, and the big guys seem to all have a one-size-fits-all approach, since they serve a variety of industries. Clouds that were designed to handle less data-intensive, mass-market consumer tasks such as file and photograph storage, video sharing/streaming, database hosting, and [...]
We can all agree that labs are being inundated with more and more tasks, more data-rich technologies, and the need to develop new strategies for dealing with this new reality. Just as we have become more efficient in managing our lives (think about the impact of smartphones), it’s important to apply similar principles of efficiency to [...]
