Our Story

While working in a lab himself, founder Jonathan Gross met the challenges of running a research group. It was here when he started using his programming skills to support a variety of tasks. BioData was founded in August 2007 when a young PI approached Jonathan asking him to develop an integrated system for his new lab.

That system is called Labguru.

In 2010, Holtzbrinck Publishing Group acquired an equity stake in BioData through Digital Science as part of their strategy – providing world-class software tools and services to scientists, companies, and institutions to make research more productive. With offices in the US, UK and Israel along with a great team, BioData has a rapidly growing base of thousands of enthusiastic customers. Experience Labguru for yourself and see how the ELN can help you.
