eLabFTW: An open source laboratory notebook for research labs


eLabFTW is a free and open source electronic laboratory notebook for researchers. Once installed on a server, it allows researchers to track their experiments, but also to manage their assets in the lab (antibodies, mouse, siRNAs, proteins, etc.). Experiments can be timestamp to any RFC 3161 Time Stamping Authority, allowing solid legal proof in case of issues about a patent. It also features a scheduler to book equipment. More informations can be found on the official website (Nicolas CARPi 2012c) and in the documentation (Nicolas CARPi 2012a). Moreover, an online demo is accessible (Nicolas CARPi 2012b) to try out the software without installing.
