After more than 18 months and thousands of hours of development effort, we are pleased to announce that LabArchives is now officially available to the public!  For those of you that are new to this Blog, LabArchives ( is an innovative new web-based software service for storing, organizing, sharing, and publishing scientific data (it can also be installed on a local server if desired).

I would like to thank our entire team for their incredible hard work in making this vision into a reality.  Throughout this process, I have been continually amazed at the rapid progress that has been made by our Development and IT teams, and the dedication they have shown in ensuring that we release a powerful yet easy-to-use product with incredible reliability and virtually no downtime….even during development.

I would also like to thank our group of Beta-testers, without whom this release would not be possible.  Their comments and suggestions have truly helped to shape LabArchives into its current form, and will continue to shape it as we implement many new features over the coming months.  LabArchives is truly a customer-driven company, and strongly encourage all of our users to make comments and suggestions, no matter how major or minor they might be.

Finally, I would like to thank our partners at GraphPad Software (makers of Prism) and TreeStar Software (makers of FlowJo) for their early recognition of the potential of LabArchives and for their hard work and efforts in integrating their products with ours.  This collaboration will provide enormous benefits to our mutual users, and we look forward to expanding our interface in the near future.
