ID Business Solutions Ltd. (doing business as IDBS) develops and distributes laboratory informatics software solutions.

In June 2009, IDBS acquired InforSense, maker of enterprise business intelligence and reporting software.
Sometime in 2022, the company appears to have discontinued E-WorkBook for Biology (formerly BioBook until 2015), or they potentially merged it with E-WorkBook, as the URL for E-WorkBook for Biology redirects there.
Awards and honors
The company was also awarded the 2010 Frost & Sullivan Enabling Technology of the Year award for best R&D knowledge management solution.
E-WorkBook for Biology (formerly BioBook until 2015), was an ELN used to better manage data in bioanalysis, drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics (DMPK), pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic (PK-PD), drug safety, and toxicology research.
