Amphora Research Systems, Inc. develops and distributes laboratory informatics software solutions, including discipline-neutral ELN solution PatentSafe.

History

Amphora has its origins in Amphora Research Systems Ltd., created as a subsidiary of New Information Paradigms Ltd. in October 2001 to market a Lotus Notes-based electronic laboratory notebook.[1] Recognizing a need for a more robust ELN built on next-generation industry technologies, the subsidiary split off in 2003 and became the independent entity Amphora Research Systems, Inc.[1] In 2007, the business earned the Market Penetration Leadership Award during Frost & Sullivan's Excellence in Healthcare Awards Banquet.[2]

The company quietly discontinued its OpenELN[3] sometime in 2015.

Technology and products

PatentSafe and IntelliSafe

PatentSafe is an ELN designed to allow researchers to more securely "create evidence which can be used in the defense of patents."[4] The software can be installed locally or hosted as a SaaS product.[5]

IntelliSafe is a "smaller and more focused" version of PatentSafe that still allows researchers to "archive, search, and retrieve their experimental work."[6] The software can be installed locally or hosted as a SaaS product.[5]
