Ocimum Biosolutions Ltd. develops and distributes numerous types of software and research solutions, including laboratory informatics software.


Biotracker was first released in 2002.[1] Since then it has undergone several versions. It now has several variants and modules for genomics research, biobanking, preclinical research and proteomics, as well as a general laboratory information management system (LIMS).

Sometime in the spring or summer of 2020, the Ocimum website went offline. As of October 2020, it's not clear if the company is still operational.
