Join us on December 15 to learn how Genentech achieved enterprise-grade R&D efficiency Register Now

A digital window into your physical lab.

Track the locations of vials, wells, batches, and more – and automatically link results to them.
Sample management software

Lab inventory management software natively unified with your life science cloud

  • Optimize space usage and never lose track of a sample again

    Benchling offers custom inventory structures, barcode integration, and location tracking so you don’t have to spend time hunting for samples.

  • Connect physical samples to their experimental context

    Interconnect your samples, experimental results, and metadata to identify promising candidates. Submit assay requests directly from input samples.

  • Automate location tracking to ensure data integrity

    By integrating with instruments such as plate readers and barcode scanners, Benchling automatically keeps samples up to date.

Sample tracking

Track the locations of your samples in custom containers

  • Configure custom storage types and locations (ex. “Box” data type; “Site” data type)
  • Configure custom storage box dimensions
  • Track locations for containers and samples within containers
Sample label printing and barcode scanning

Label printing and barcode scanning

  • Zebra printer integration for one-click printing from Benchling
  • Barcode scanner integration pulls up any sample’s full experimental history
  • Automatic barcode generation according to business rules
  • Add information from the Registry to printed labels
Sample management software integration

Develop integrations for automated data entry

  • Plate readers and FACS machines
  • qPCR machines, DNA sequencing machines, and Bioreactors
  • Materials testing machines, such as DMA machines, Zwick machines, and light microscopes
  • Barcode scanners and printers
Linked sample tracking inventory

Link your Inventory to upstream entities in the Registry

  • From an entity in the Registry, see all the downstream samples and results that were produced. For example, see all the results produced by antibody candidates with a particular variable chain
  • From an entity in the Registry, see the locations of all the downstream samples that it produced. For example, see all the locations of a particular cell line

"With Benchling, it's so much faster and easier to find the information that you want, and share information even in real time. Series of experiments go faster, program timelines go faster, and it shortens the timelines for the development of our therapeutics."
