Arxspan, LLC develops and distributes laboratory informatics software solutions.


Arxspan was founded in January 2011.[1]

In November 2015, the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard partnered with Arxspan to use its ArxLab (now "Arxspan") software for biomedical research at the institute.[2]

In March 2019, Bruker Corporation announced that it had acquired Arxspan. It wasn't clear at the time how Arxspan would operate due to the acquisition, but the company is presumably operating as a subsidiary of Bruker.[3] With the change also came a few minor changes, including the presumed discontinuation of ArxLab FT (Filter and Transform)[4] and a name change of Arxspan's product line from "ArxLab" to "Arxspan."
