LabKey Corporation (operating as LabKey[1]) partners with biomedical research organizations to develop custom software solutions that help scientists integrate, analyze, and securely share complex research information.

LabKey Software solutions are built on the LabKey Server open-source platform, which has been developed for over 15 years.[2][3] The company originated at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (FHCRC) and has offices in Seattle, Washington and San Diego, California[3]. Like the majority of businesses developing and distributing open-source software, LabKey derives its income from support, customization, and other services.[4]

History

The open source project that became LabKey Server began in a proteomics lab at the FHCRC in late 2003.[3] In January 2005, the project's founders collaborated with the FHCRC to incorporate LabKey Software in order to make support and extension services for the platform more easily accessible to groups beyond the FHCRC.[3][5]

In 2011, LabKey Sofware began holding the annual LabKey User Conference to help members of the LabKey Server user community "share their experiences, learn from each other, and apply new knowledge to their scientific data management challenges."[6]

By 2013, more than 70 installations of LabKey Server supported research organizations all over the world.[7][8] Many of these groups collaborate with LabKey Software to enhance their data management tools and processes, including the FHCRC, the HIV Vaccine Trials Network (HVTN), the Collaboration for AIDS Vaccine Discovery (CAVD), NWBioTrust, the Human Immunology Project Consortium (HIPC), the International Center of Excellence in Malaria Research (ICEMR) at the University of Washington, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) Network for Pancreatic Organ Donors (nPOD), and the Immune Tolerance Network (ITN).[6][8][9]

In July 2014, the National Academies of Science recognized the ITN's installation of LabKey Server — ITN TrialShare — for exceptional innovation in research data management. The installation also won the Board on Research and Data and Information contest for the most outstanding model of "Using Data for the Public Good."[10]

Technology

LabKey Server is an open-source laboratory information management system (LIMS) "designed to help organizations integrate, analyze, and share complex biomedical data."[11] It can be downloaded and installed on your own or be hosted as a SaaS cloud offering by LabKey.[12]

For more information on LabKey Server, please see the LabKey Server LIMSwiki page.
