Announcing our new edition: Benchling for Institutions Learn More

Bring together all your R&D data

Integrate any instrument, database, or piece of software with Benchling

Power IT innovation with easy-to-use developer tools

Benchling’s industry-leading APIs are built to match the flexibility and speed of modern life science R&D. We’ve worked with dozens of companies to integrate instruments, software, and databases of all types directly with the Benchling platform. Standardize and centralize your data to enable automation of your R&D processes.

Integrate any instrument

Instruments integrated with Benchling automatically update samples with results, new locations, and new properties. They can also create entirely new samples and connect them to the rest of your experiments, so your data is up to date and completely interconnected with minimal manual effort. Some examples of instruments our clients have integrated:
  • Plate readers and FACS machines
  • Bioreactors
  • qPCR machines and DNA sequencing machines
  • Materials testing machines, such as DMA machines, Zwick machines, and light microscopes
  • Barcode scanners and printers

Integrate any software or database

  • Analytics tools

    Connect analysis tools (e.g. Spotfire, Tableau, R, Python, etc.) at the SQL level through Benchling’s warehouse or through REST APIs. Create dashboards and conduct analyses that were previously never possible. Learn more about Dashboards and Analytics.

  • Standalone informatics tools

    Integrate other informatics software with the Benchling Platform to automatically pull in your data and keep it in sync.

  • Custom software

    Directly integrate custom software, such as proprietary sequence analysis software or proprietary CRISPR gRNA scoring software, into the Benchling Platform.

  • External databases

    Clients who want to back up their Benchling data onto other systems have connected Benchling to their own Amazon S3 buckets and other systems of record.
