Biopharmaceutical R&D Solution

Accelerate Your Therapeutic Discovery and Development

Identify novel leads faster, advance promising candidates with greater insight, and develop novel therapeutics with cross-functional collaboration.

A seachange is underway in modern biopharmaceutical R&D

This new era of science brings an explosion of new innovation in fields such as cell therapy, gene therapy, antibodies, proteins, and other new drug modalities — as well as a new R&D paradigm.

As science becomes increasingly complex, with more data and process orchestration than previous generations of therapeutics, pharmaceutical companies must work faster towards milestones, while making informed scientific decisions to advance the most promising drug candidates.

Biopharmaceutical R&D Solution

Benchling’s Biopharmaceutical R&D Solution is trusted by hundreds of biopharmaceutical innovators to accelerate their R&D. It empowers scientists to improve productivity, collaborate across teams, and derive new insights from their data. This solution is a modern take on digital R&D, combining the capabilities expected from ELN, LIMS, LES, and in silico molecular design tools, but built from the ground up with a seamless user experience and harmonized data foundation.

  • Identify novel leads faster
    Scientists and research teams design, experiment, and collaborate on a connected platform, with a complete view of their discovery programs.
  • Advance promising lead candidates with contextual insights
    Scientists, program leaders, and executives can ask new questions from their data, leading to improved scientific decision support — enabling the most effective compounds to move forward into development within an informative scientific context.
  • Develop novel therapeutics with cross-functional collaboration
    Development teams organize and execute their work with controlled processes and GxP-compliant workflows, reducing the time needed to collect, prepare, and file data for IND submissions.
