This is how Lab notebooks should be in 21st century! It helped our laboratory to track and record our notes and data in a modern and very efficient way.

Pros

I'd really like the fact that you can import and export data with this software. You can also save the template and save lots of time. It is very nice that you don't have to manually draw tables or shapes.

Cons

I cant think of a major disadvantages. For sure I would like more storage for free but I guess it's not really a disadvantage.

I tested several ELNs before selecting labfolder, which suited my needs the best.

Helped me and my colleagues in the lab work together more efficiently. We sometimes also have researchers from other institutions working with us on different projects, which would be complicated without an online interface and the collaboration tools.

Pros

- Easy to manage experiment data, even in group projects
- Free for small teams, affordable for larger groups
- Protocol templates save me a lot of time!
- Audit trail so I can review and restore any changes made
- I can export all my notes as a xhtml

Cons

- The design is a bit boring (but functional)
- Limited storage (3GB) in the free version
- No Open source version

Reviewed on 2019/09/10

Although it is convenient, it is not my cup of tea. I'll stick to pen and paper.

Although it is convenient, it is not my cup of tea. I'll stick to pen and paper.

Pros

It allowed for ease of access when it came to sharing my lab notebook with other people in my lab. Always legible.

Cons

I prefer having a hardcopy notebook and this seem counterintuitive to be writing things down via pen and then typing up my notebook.

Really useful for lab meetings and 1-on-1 meetings with the boss

Reviewed on 2019/07/19

Pros

The best part about this software is no more writing and drawing in a physical notebook! I can have this program open on the same computer I am collecting data with and just type in any notes if necessary. Also, I can take screenshots and add those to the page as well. For lab meeting, I can bring all of my notes, raw data, and analyzed graphs in the exact same place/screen for a huge time saving boost.

Cons

This is actually probably a good thing overall, but I hate it. It allows my boss to see my daily progress, as he can see what I upload to it and when. This kind of creates a bit of a micromanaging situation which I personally don't like.

Very satisfied. Labfolder helps me organize my research notes during my Phd studies

Pros

I like the search functionality a lot. Save me a lot of time that I can just search for certain keywords and find a note I created about a particular experiment over a year ago.

Cons

As I sometimes use certain advanced excel functionalities, it would be useful to have full excel functionality embedded, rather than always having to import the files from Excel into the notebook.

Response from labfolder

Thanks for the nice review Jacques! We're very glad that you enjoy using labfolder.
