Obsidian Therapeutics

Unlocking pivotal R&D answers while ensuring data integrity

Pioneering cell and gene therapies for patients with intractable diseases

Obsidian Therapeutics is developing a suite of technologies that allow for control of protein activity within cells to power novel therapeutics. This will allow them to deliver transformative outcomes for patients with previously intractable diseases.


Clunky ELN lacked features for biology

Previous ELN was clunky and didn’t allow for linkages to registered samples, hindering adoption and experimental detail

Inefficient request fulfillment

Without a formal registration system, Obsidian scientists couldn’t draw connections between results, data, and upstream entities.

Low-adoption legacy sample tracking system 

Legacy sample tracking system was unintuitive and saw low scientist usage, leading to data loss and compliance concerns.


Unified informatics

Integrated sample tracking and note taking generated strong user adoption and improved the quality and reliability of experimental records.

Centralized registration

Obsidian can trace from downstream results to identify effective upstream entities. “Why does this lentivirus work well? Is it related to a specific batch of constructs?”

Secure data

With Benchling’s Registry that rewards scientist usage, Obsidian can be confident that the constructs, parts, and other entities they’re tracking will hold up in a court of law.
