Our Clients

eLabNext products are trusted by more than 40.000 scientists worldwide and eLabInventory has helped our clients to work more efficiently, become more productive, and save costs.

Dr. Isabel Hanekamp, Research Lab Manager, Center for Transplantation Sciences, Partners Healthcare

“Our lab had been looking for a biological sample management system for a long time but all of the applications we evaluated lacked the flexibility and ease of use that we needed. With eLabInventory we found an application that could be adapted to all of the different types of samples that we have and was also user friendly. In our center, we currently have four groups that are using eLabInventory and others that will be joining in the future. Each group has been able to adapt eLabInventory to their unique needs. The customer service with eLabInventory is wonderful. In addition, eLabInventory ensures compliance with Data Management Plans by providing an auditable system for sample management. Finally, the Supplies module in the application makes ordering and tracking orders much easier.”

Justin Krouse, Director – AS&T, Central Laboratory, GSK Consumer Healthcare 

“I needed an inventory software solution to track reference standards, and in our laboratory, I was tasked to set this up in a very short time. This was a no-fail mission. Taking ownership of reference standards in a lab that an entire supply chain would depend on was a daunting task. I needed software that was compliant, secure, easy to set up and use, and most of all flexible. I found eLabInventory and it saved the day. I cannot say enough good things about the software and the support I received through the implementation process. It was so easy to set up and use, I did it with the bare minimum of work in less than a week. When I ran into questions or needed guidance, our designated Key Account Manager always answered his phone, texted, or emailed me back immediately. I quickly got the sense that the same level of support suffuses all levels and departments within the company. Who does that nowadays? The folks at Bio-ITech are top-notch professionals with a superior product at a fraction of the cost of other software I considered. I wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone.”
