AgileBio develops and distributes laboratory informatics software, specializing in the life sciences, research and development, and more. AgileBio also offers a software development service for customers looking for a specific software solution.


AgileBio was formed out of the efforts of Pierre Rodrigues, who released MBS - Molecular Biology Shortcuts — a portal for software tools and information — in 1998. In early 2002, Rodrigues organized out of a need to further consolidate molecular biology tools and news into a cleaner site. That same year AgileBio was formed as an entity "committed to design unique solutions to scientists' teams and companies to turn them into more agile structures."[1][2]
