Boost your productivity with Labfolder

Make the most of your PhD. Spend more time in the lab and less struggling with a paper lab notebook!

Using a digital lab notebook has endless benefits for your PhD. Starting and successfully finishing a PhD is a marathon spanning several years, but you will always feel like you are running out of time. By using Labfolder, you will be able to expedite your documentation and focus on what you really love to do: being in the lab, running experiments.

A successful PhD is all about being able to multitask and stay organized. But it is not so easy, is it?  The handwritten protocol is not working again and you are not sure whether to use nM or mM. You need to reproduce an experiment but you are still struggling to understand the description you found in the paper notebook from a former lab member. You need to keep a daily record of your digital data on your paper notebook but doing so is extremely time-consuming. On top of that, there is no easy way to find your own data (post-its and flipping pages are not really a solution) and it is even harder to share your findings with your lab members and get important feedback… Time is ticking and you are struggling to boost your productivity and succeed!


Labfolder was designed by scientists for scientists and is all about making your life as PhD student easier and more productive. Our electronic lab notebook allows you to manage your data like never before, ensuring that you keep track of your daily lab activities accurately, effortlessly, and quickly, and to easily access your data and protocols. You can view and efficiently manage all your projects and data in one single location. Remember the post-its and flipping pages? Labfolder replaces that for an advanced tags & filter tool and a search button.

Give yourself more time to work on your experiments and make breakthrough discoveries.

What our scientists say about Labfolder

“Paper-based lab books are cumbersome to write in and a nightmare to keep track of in the long run. With more and more research data being digital, it is much more intuitive to record experiments in a digital format too.”

“Supervision of several students working on their thesis is one of the duties of a PhD student. Using Labfolder makes it much easier to keep track of the daily work in the lab and also helps me organize my own research.”
