openBIS 19.06.0/ openBIS ELN-LIMS – Managing Biological Information

openBIS 19.06.0 / openBIS ELN-LIMS


openBIS is an open, distributed system for managing biological information. The main goal is to support biological research data workflows from the source (i.e. the measurement instruments) to facilitate the process of answering biological questions by means of cross-domain queries against raw data, processed data, knowledge resources and its corresponding metadata.


The aim of openBIS ELN-LIMS was to create a stable database with an intuitive and simple-to-use graphical user interface (GUI) where all relevant lab data can be collected.
