shazino SAS develops and distributes laboratory informatics software solutions.
shazino was founded in 2012 "by biology and computer science researchers dedicated to improving workflows in research labs." Their first major product, the electronic laboratory notebook (ELN) hivebench, was released on March 7, 2013. shazino updated the application in January 2014 with an improved interface, improved electronic signatures, and a new calendar page.
On June 1, 2016, scientific publisher Elsevier formally acquired the hivebench product from shazino for an undisclosed amount. The acquisition included the transition of CEO Julien Thérier and Hivebench developer Vincent Tourraine to Elsevier's Mendeley Data team in London. As of October 2016[update], both the shazino and hivebench web pages showed no indications of this change, and the future of both is not particularly clear, though hivebench will apparently be "linked to the Mendeley Data repository, which will be linked to Pure."
Sometime in the summer or fall of 2021, Elsevier updated the hivebench website to indicate "on January 31, 2022, we will be ceasing to host data and experiments on the Hivebench platform." It's not explicitly clear if the ELN is being discontinued.
