KITCHENER, ONTARIO, March 29, 2022 – Scispot, a Y Combinator-backed life science lab informatics startup, launches Labsheets to help life science labs go beyond non-scientific spreadsheets and old-school lab information management systems (LIMS). Labsheets is a no-code relational database product exclusively designed for life science labs in order to support all of their data management, sample tracking, audit trail, automated report creation, and integration needs.
With Labsheets, Scispot strives to empower life science labs and help them reduce the time they spend managing data in spreadsheets, allowing lab professionals to design and automate their workflows and bring their scientific breakthroughs to market faster.
“We interviewed hundreds of lab researchers & managers, worked for thousands of hours, and automated hundreds of scientific workflows in the past year. We realized life science labs were forced to use spreadsheets or Google Sheets that are not built for lab workflows and LIMS software that are not configurable and have old-school UX and UI,” stated Satya Singh, co-founder, President & CPO of Scispot.
Current lab management systems are outdated and cannot be configured to support the unique lab workflows of life science companies. That's why Scispot strives to provide labs with a secure, modern and flexible alternative that addresses common pain points with lab information and resource management.
“We use Labsheets to manage and track lab samples, prepare multi-well plates, give updates to our research partners, and automate our inventory consumption. The flexibility of Labsheets and its audit trail functionality helped us bring our disparate data from multiple spreadsheets to one Labsheets,” stated Aida Manu, Head of Operations at Yemaachi Biotech.
Since its soft launch in 2021, Labsheets has become a go-to toolkit of numerous life science labs. Below are some of the popular use cases of Labsheets:
- Design applications with a no-code spreadsheet interface to manage and automate your resources – inventory, sample, and equipment
- Compare data from various sheets graphically through customizable dashboards
- Collaborate with research partners by setting up datarooms
- Set up custom alerts (e.g., equipment maintenance, reordering thresholds, etc.) to stay on top of your lab
- Transfer data to and from your internal legacy LIMS or any 3rd-party apps
- Automate and templatize repetitive lab processes such as product re-ordering and report creation
- Use Labsheets’ developer API to connect Jupyter notebook
Labsheets offers one-click scientific integrations with hundreds of third-party apps, developer toolkit and a no-code feature library.
