Informatics Solutions for R&D

Core Informatics provides tightly integrated, state of the art Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS), Electronic Laboratory Notebooks (ELN), Scientific Data Management Software (SDMS) and Collaboration solutions to customers across multiple industries. Underlying each of Core Informatics’ products is the powerful, flexible Platform for Science (PFS), a web-based, scalable and extensible informatics platform. PFS systems require no client software installation and are available as hosted or installed solutions configured to meet customers’ needs without custom coding. All Core Informatics products, solutions and applications are available via the Platform for Science Marketplace™.

Our proven Core LIMS, ELN, Collaboration and SDMS
products are now available on Platform for Science.


Configurable. Flexible. Extensible.

The Core Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) is designed to fit your lab’s needs today and your changing needs tomorrow. The LIMS arrives out of the box, ready to be molded to your laboratory’s requirements.

The Core LIMS provides highly organized and highly searchable structured data collection. The information in the LIMS can be shared, analyzed or archived according to your facility’s needs. Scientific workflows are available and can be easily configured to meet the exact specifications of your lab. The LIMS allows you to automate your workflows, manage your samples and data, integrate instruments and report on it all.

The LIMS runs on the Platform for Science—a scientific, cloud-based platform designed to integrate new products and applications as they are developed. Configurability is the key to the Core LIMS. The wide array of solutions and applications offered for the LIMS, means you can pick and choose the functionality you would like to see in your systems. There is no need to purchase a large suite of extra functionality which may not be needed by your organization.


Capture. Automate. Integrate.

The Core Scientific Data Management System (SDMS) drives laboratory instrument integration in combination with the Core LIMS and Core ELN. The SDMS automatically captures data and draws information and results from laboratory equipment into the system to enable data storage, analysis and adherence to proper laboratory workflows. When the Core SDMS detects a new file in an instrument’s network file system, the appropriate file parser loads the information into the Core LIMS. The Core SDMS has a library of file parsers which support rapid integration of laboratory instrumentation.


Analyze. Manage. Share.

The Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) by Core Informatics is more than a replacement for a paper notebook. The ELN is a powerful, searchable, 100% cloud-based repository for unstructured data, which can be securely accessed anywhere, any time on any device. It can be used to capture, analyze and share data, all in a 21CFR11 validated environment. Data in the ELN can be searched across projects and accessed by multiple users according to security privileges. The Core ELN works seamlessly with all other Core Informatics products and applications available on the Platform for Science. This environment is fully configurable to the needs of the team and accepts free form data entry. The ELN also integrates with MS Office Web Apps, in addition to Marvin Sketch/ChemDraw for chemistry applications.


Communicate. Collaborate. Innovate.

Effective collaboration is the key to accelerating research and improving efficiency. Core Collaboration is a quickly configurable collaborative solution providing research partners with immediate, securely sequestered access to appropriate project information.

A private, multi-tenant instance of Core Collaboration allows for real-time data and document sharing, speeding timelines and safe-guarding research data with partners around the world. Collaboration Spaces can be created within hours on the Platform for Science. Core products (LIMS, ELN, SDMS) as well as applications immediately populate Collaboration Spaces according to pre-determined customer specifications. Core Collaboration allows for rapid data exchange and knowledge sharing between Collaboration Spaces as well as with legacy application and data sources.

Core Collaboration: Empower your researchers to work side-by-side, all around the world.


Premier Scientific Informatics Platform (Build. Discover. Evolve.)

The Platform for Science is the premier scientific informatics system for your big data needs. You can discover, deploy and develop solutions for any scientific domain using our unique Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). The universe of products, solutions and applications for the Platform for Science can be used in any scientific study to collect, store, analyze and share information.

Laboratory Data Management Systems
Features of the Core Informatics Platform for Science

All products, solutions and applications in the Core Informatics data management suite run on the Platform for Science, a 100% web-based, highly configurable scientific informatics platform. The Platform for Science database can be used by researchers in any science, on any device over any web browser. Core LIMS (Laboratory Information Management Systems), Core ELN (Electronic Lab Notebooks), Core SDMS (Scientific Data Management Systems) and Core Collaboration are all designed to work together seamlessly.

The Platform for Science database is extensible, cost effective and user friendly. The system can be configured to meet customers’ needs without any custom coding. Our products are rapidly deployed and highly configurable, which reduces time and resources necessary to create a scientific informatics solution designed to fit your needs. The systems require no client software installation and are available as a hosted or installed solution.

The Platform for Science allows you to pick and choose which Core Informatics products, solutions and applications you want to deploy in your lab. Each instance of the Platform for Science includes the database and supporting cloud or server infrastructure, and the additional apps your lab selects.

There is no “cookie cutter” deployment from Core Informatics. All of our products are designed with configuration in mind. The Platform for Science is a flexible environment which grows along with your lab, allowing you to choose only those capabilities that fit your unique R&D needs.

Core Informatics products are designed to increase the efficiency of R&D labs. The Core Informatics team interviews the key players in your organization and identifies the needs of each group. We document workflows and help you determine which components of our system would be best configured to fit the needs of your lab and the over-arching needs of your organization, today and tomorrow.

A cloud based informatics solution from Core Informatics is cost effective and designed to grow with your lab as your needs change over time. The Platform for Science is offered as the basis of our cloud-based software solution, but an on premises deployment is also available for organizations which have strict regulatory requirements. All Core Informatics products, solutions and applications are designed with an interlocking system which allows them to run together on the Platform for Science. This component-based software architecture allows your organization to select only the LIMS, ELN, SDMS and Collaboration features and functionality it needs.

Every lab is different and our team works with you to create a system specifically configured to your workflow. Our team is made up of former lab scientists who fundamentally understand the needs of a laboratory. We don’t just hand over a system, we become your partner and consultant.
