Labstep, a transformative research platform, is pleased to announce the institute-wide trial of their cloud-based technology at Medical Research Council Unit The Gambia at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine.
The trial of Labstep.com at MRC Unit The Gambia at LSHTM is the first institute-wide assessment of the cloud-based, mobile-optimised web app that connects groups of researchers who can share version-controlled experimental procedures. Labstep allows researchers to run experimental procedures at the workbench, capturing real-time data on scientific processes, and uses this to build a record of research activity.
Jake Schofield, Labstep co-founder and CEO comments: “We built Labstep with the pain points of the individual researcher in mind. With Labstep, we are streamlining scientific data recording and subsequent processing, supporting the individual as well as answering the global call for enhanced research documentation. Institute-wide use of Labstep will be a huge improvement to the researcher’s day-to-day work and brilliantly supports collaboration within and between research labs.”
The lack of legacy infrastructure provides a unique opportunity for local researchers to leap directly towards use of cloud data storage and synchronisation over mobile networks, bypassing WiFi or ethernet source complications.
