Research Innovations Limited (operating as "ResearchSpace") develops and distributes laboratory informatics software solutions.

Lab-Ally LLC is the North American operating arm of ResearchSpace, assisting with all aspects of product design, support, distribution, and U.S. invoicing.[1]

History

Sometime in 2012 Research Innovations Limited acquired Axiope Limited and its electronic laboratory notebook offering eCAT, with the same Axiope team now affiliated with Research Innovations.[2][3][1] Axiope was a venture spun out of Edinburgh University to "let scientists grow 'semantic webs' in labs."[4]

Technology and products

eCAT

eCAT is a web-based electronic laboratory notebook (ELN), "a tool that lets you manage experimental data and samples in an integrated online environment."[5] The software can be installed locally or hosted remotely by ResearchSpace as software as a service (SaaS).

RSpace

RSpace is a version of eCAT designed for the North American and other markets. RSpace is an ELN "that catalyzes research and allows organizations to enjoy the benefits, efficiencies and long-term cost savings of centralized, paperless data storage."[6]
