eLAB SDK – for a tailored ELN solution

The eLABInventory offers unparalleled options track samples and biobanks. However, many laboratories have very specific workflow, using very particular tools or techniques. This often results in the need for additional functionality or a customization of existing functionality. Although eLABInventory is one of the most versatile sample tracking solutions in the market, the option to track samples in a particular workflow may in specific cases require a large number of manual actions which should be automated or improved to fully satisfy your workflow.

Extend, integrate or customize any functionality within eLABInventory

With the eLAB SDK you can tailor eLABInventory to your all-encompassing research data platform. The eLAB SDK allows you to customize, integrate or extend almost any functionality within eLABInventory, by creating ‘custom plugins’ also called Apps. The addition of new features or creation of new buttons in which actions are combined are just a few examples of what you can achieve with the eLAB SKD.

How to develop Apps with the eLAB SDK

Research groups or IT departments skilled in building software with JavaScript and the eLAB API, can develop Apps as specified in the SDK documentation. In the eLABInventory Private Cloud or On-Premise installation, you can test and install Apps yourself. In case you use the eLABInventory Cloud, please contact us to request access to our App development environment to test and develop SDK Apps. Once you have completed your App, you can submit your App to us to make it active for your organisation, department or lab. In case your organisation requires custom App to extend the functionality of eLABInventory, but you do not have the knowledge or resources to develop Apps within your organisation, you can have your Apps developed by one of our developing partners. Please contact us to bring you in contact with a developing partner in your region.
