labfolder GmbH develops and distributes laboratory informatics software solutions.

History

On July 1, 2012, start-up company labfolder GmbH made its first blog post, announcing its intentions. Led by biologists Simon Bungers and Florian Hauer as well as programmer Mathias Schäffner, the start-up aimed to address "the limits of paper-based laboratory notebooks such as loose data collections, scattered notes and limited search facilities at the lab bench" and "create a digital lab notebook that can be used as laboratory management software and collaboration platform for laboratory research."[1] The trio released an alpha version of its labfolder software for testing on October 3[2], followed by a beta version on February 20, 2013.[3] The product moved out of beta testing in May 2014 and was offered as a free basic package.[4]

Awards

In April 2013, labfolder received an award for being one of the top 10 best concepts at start2grow Competition 2013.[4]
