Beer Sheba, Israel - May 2016

This week, laboratory workers, PhD students, and administrators from Israel’s National Institute of Biotechnology (NIB) at Ben-Gurion University attended an introductory presentation of Labsuit - with a view to integrating its comprehensive management tools into their laboratory administration. The Institute, a core part of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, is overseen by a Scientific Advisory Board whose members include, Nobel Laureate, Prof. Sir Aaron Klug OM FRS, and Prof. Raymond Dwek, Founder and Director of Oxford University’s Glycobiology Institute and its spin-off biotechnology company, Oxford GlycoSciences.

“Being invited to such a prestigious organization is vindication of the potential of our tools,” explains Helen Domeshek,” join owner, and founder of Labsuit. “By using our cloud-based inventory system, the Institute and its many laboratories will experience a huge increase in efficiency, saving time, money, and energy - while contributing to environmental preservation.”

The invitation to the NIB came at the request of the VP for R&D at BGU who heard about Labsuit from an acquaintance. “Realizing how our platform could benefit the Institute, he put us in touch with the appropriate people and we organized our presentation.”

About 450 laboratories around Israel and abroad have already joined Labsuit in the two years of its operation. Use of the platform to Universities is free, and offers sharing of valuable chemicals among labs.

During the visit to the Ben-Gurion Campus, Labsuit also presented to the Faculty of Health Sciences, and the Head of Acquisitions.

Lab Fairy embraces Eli Lewis's lab at Ben Gurion university of the Negev

When there is a job for Lab Fairy it doesn't matter whether it's in the Noth or in the South - Lab Fairy packs its tools and embarks for an assignment! This time Lab Fairy has got a call from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev.  It's a pure pleasure to work with a professional lab manager Having boarded a train heading South, the Lab Fairy had an hour ride to Beer Sheva. At the campus which is shared by hospital and university, Lab Fairy was met by amazing lab manager - Ronen Schuster. Ronen was so positive and cooperative that Lab Fairy had a true pleasure of working with him. Ronen accompanied us to the lab and gave very accurate instructions, so the expectations on both sides were very clear.  Lab Fairy plunged into work. Lab Fairy's target was a fridge full of antibodies. On previous  Lab Fairy  assignments,  there were containers  mostly  with chemicals, therefore dealing with the new type of inventory items made it even more interesting and exciting!

Case study: social media comes to help to accelerate one's research

Even Lab Researchers have their WOW! Moments “Labs-Around-Me” is a sharing economy concept for the world of research laboratories. Such labs can share chemicals, antibodies, plasmids and more, with other labs around them. As LabSuit's concept of “Labs-Around-Me” has evolved, more and more researchers have experienced  amazing WOW! moments when they begin to understand the benefit of our platform. True Story This is a story of something experienced by a LabSuit subscriber not so long ago. As we all know, “Labs-Around-Me” allow facilities and researchers to participate in a special LabSuit community. The community includes hundreds of labs - and, through a simple interface, allows them all to collaborate in locating and exchanging chemical reagents. Events begin in December 2015 Every day LabSuit delivers hundreds of messages between universities - as well as internally, within the same campus. Researchers ask questions about chemicals, buffers,
