One Spot to manage all your experiment metadata

Cataloging experiment metadata is a tricky, insurmountable business for many biotech startups and scaleups. Different companies have different ways of managing their experiments, yet still fail to truly capture, account, and understand all of their experiment’s metadata. Unsurprisingly, over 70% of research experiments are not reproducible, and as a result, life science industry loses over $28B every year in the US alone. 

Managing your data in the same platform and also having different methods to record and showcase is the perfect combination to ensure you understand your experiment outcomes: from insight into experimental error rates to eventual successes.

To understand how to achieve this golden standard, you must know how Scispot’s platform gives varying options of cataloging metadata. In Labsheets, your database records all of your metadata. But, by also using Labspace, you have the ability to take notes regarding your experiments, consume inventory and capture results, contemporaneously. With this one-two combo, you can efficiently connect your notes with your relational databases, and better understand your results and what experiment protocols yield successful results.

As you design new protocols and experiments, Labflows (aka Templates) can be used to create a sequence of your protocols, and allows for changes with a simple drag and drop. Worried about losing previous versions of your protocols? Labflows takes care of version control, by recording any deviations you make to your standard protocols to help better understand the changes in experiment results. 

While managing and reorganizing your experiment metadata is important, no one wants to risk data integrity. With Scispot’s Data Rooms, you can collaborate with your team members and external collaborators as you execute experiments everywhere. By extracting data of your choosing to create a data room, and controlling viewing and editing access, you can relax knowing your data is secure.

All within the same platform, you have access to different features to better manage your experiment metadata in a way that your data integrity is preserved. Through taking notes, working with your team, organizing protocols while recording changes, the door is open for new scientific breakthrough and cures to fatal diseases.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
