What we offer

Workflows

We know you want tools that enhance your existing workflows, not ones that force you to adopt new ones. That’s why we’ve made it easy to get started by importing protocols and other documents in Word and having them automatically convert to fully editable RSpace documents with all the formatting maintained. That’s why RSpace is integrated with DropBox, OneDrive, Google Drive, Box and Egnyte, as well as Mendeley, Github, Slack and MS Teams.

We’re adding integrations all the time. The latest is with protocols.io, the new protocols sharing website. You can see why we call RSpace the Connected ELN!

 

Business Model

RSpace is a unique resource, and we want it to be available to everybody.  That’s why, unlike any other ELN, we provide a completely free version that can be used by anyone, in academic and commercial settings.  RSpace Community is free for individuals, free for groups, and provides unlimited data storage.  

Let’s repeat that. RSpace Community is free for individuals, free for groups, and provides unlimited data storage.  No one else offers that. No one. If that works for your group, forever, that’s fine with us. But some — biotechs when they reach a certain size, and universities — want an RSpace instance they can administer, and that’s integrated with their broader research infrastructure.  RSpace Enterprise is for them. And, we’ve made it easy to transfer data from Community to Enterprise so no time is lost when the transition takes place.

Finding Stuff

RSpace has powerful search capabilities, that goes without saying. It’s also got other support for finding things you won’t see in other ELNs. Each RSpace document gets a unique ID, and you can make links between RSpace documents.

That’s a powerful combination. Why? Imagine you use a single protocol to run multiple experiments. That protocol has a clickable list of all those experiments. So you can see at glance what they are, and you are just one click away from reviewing each of them. When the time comes to write up or present your research, everything you need, protocols, raw data, statistical test results, graphs and experimental write up are all linked together and immediately locatable.

Security and Compliance

Nothing is more important than your data, and we take every precaution to ensure that it’s secure. RSpace is fully 21 CFR 11 compliant and supports GLP. Compliance capabilities are built into RSpace so as to operate as natural parts of typical workflows. For example, a full audit trail of every action taken by every user is maintained, and is accessible in a number of easily discoverable and configurable ways.
Digital signing and witnessing is supported, and, in a feature unique to RSpace, a hash is assigned to signed documents when they are exported that ensures that even after export the integrity of the document is maintained, enabling proof of provenance when presenting research for IP purposes.

Trusted by institutions and researchers around the world
Indispensable component

“When I moved to the MRC Laboratory for Molecular Biology, RSpace was a core component of the infrastructure I put in place for my new lab here. Lab members found it easy to get started with RSpace, and it conveniently helps us to record, share and track our research data. I can’t imagine running a lab without it!”

Great Flexibility

“We were using a different ELN before and decided to switch. We liked the flexibility of the program and the friendliness of RSpace. Customer service has been really good.”

Convenient and Secure

“I open RSpace every morning before beginning lab work or reading, like a paper notebook. It’s my storage for meeting notes with advisors and collaborators, experiment planning, and always the last task of the day to update my lab entries.”

Simple and Organized

“I wanted to get away from paper notebooks, which are hard to search, hard to copy, and easy to lose. Plus, I was tired of printing out my results and taping them into binders or notebooks, especially since most of it was digital to begin with.”
