KineMatik Ltd. develops and distributes laboratory informatics and other software solutions.


Up until early 2014, KineMatic's products were marketed under the eNovator Application Suite.[1]

A number of product changes occurred in the fall of 2018 and spring of 2019. First, their KineMatik ELN received a name change to OpenText ELN for Content Suite in approximately the fall of 2018.[2] By early 2019, several of its other laboratory-related offerings—ChemBio and LinkLab—disappeared from their website and are presumably discontinued.[3] The changes appear to be a move towards a greater focus on business applications.

Previous technology

ChemBio was add-on software for its ELN, adding chemical and biological drawing functionality.[3]

LinkLab was middleware that seamlessly "connects individual brands and models of laboratory systems" (including instruments and lab software) while "providing a guaranteed store and forward capability."[4]

Technology and products

OpenText ELN

OpenText ELN is an electronic laboratory notebook that "helps researchers capture and find research data faster, helps them "share data from multiple projects and collaborate across global research sites," and also "protects intellectual property and support compliance with regulatory GxP guidelines."[5]
