sciNote – Free Electronic Lab Notebook

Easiest way to manage your scientific data


sciNote is a free electronic laboratory notebook (ELN), an elegant solution for replacing the paper notebook that offers exciting new possibilities for data, team and work management.


Organize your data in an easy and structured way

Whether you are just beginning your scientific career or already have vast experience, sciNote enables you to structure your work into Projects, Experiments and Tasks. With sciNote it is easy to visualize your work progress by creating flexible workflows and obtain complete overview of your research at any point in time.


“sciNote Electronic Lab Notebook is intuitive and beautifully designed.“

Varun Ramraj, PhD, Oxford Genomics Centre


Keep all your data in one place and automatically generate project reports 

Connecting your uploaded files to the sample and protocol repositories gives structure and context to your data. This makes it simple to extract the information stored in sciNote and generate comprehensive reports in a few seconds. You can easily print your reports directly out of this online lab book . The powerful search option also allows you to instantly find anything, anywhere, anytime – just type in the keyword.

“I am very impressed. The core system is flexible to accommodate almost any type of workflow and experiment.”

Dr. Shiraz Shah, University of Copenhagen

Collaborate with your team, students and partners

The benefits of using an ELN become much greater when shared among scientists or entire labs that work on the same projects. Within sciNote, you can work on your private projects, share projects with members of your team, invite others to collaborate and even use it to work with your/other students. Each user has their own role with corresponding set of permissions within the team.


How do we keep your data safe?
