Arxspan ELN and BioDriveTM

Take your research to the FASTLANE with Arxspan’s comprehensive tool for molecular biology, BioDrive!!! A single platform that caters to the needs of today’s diverse research teams.

BioDrive is a molecular biology extension of the Arxspan Electronic Laboratory Notebook that integrates seamlessly into existing infrastructure to deliver a single platform for managing molecular biology, biology, and chemistry data.

A sequence editing tool is as fundamental to biology as a chemical structure drawing tool is to chemistry. For the individual scientist there are numerous desktop tools for either application depending on research focus, chemist or a biologist. For the individual this segregation or silo-ing may be acceptable and in this respect BioDrive Desktop, as a sequence editing tool, just adds to the list.

For the enterprise, when it comes to ELNs, the choice is again limited to one or the other; that is a chemistry ELN with no molecular biology support or a molecular biology ELN with no chemistry support. For the enterprise this is not practical, as it results in many companies having duplicate or redundant solutions, with critical data that is not accessible across project teams.

BioDrive is integrated into the Arxspan ELN

With the introduction of BioDrive Enterprise, the Arxspan ELN is one solution for your multi-discipline research teams with coverage for all chemistry and biology persona.

  • The Arxspan ELN provides full coverage for the various biology persona and workflows including Molecular Biology, Assay Development, Screening, Analysis, Bioanalytical and Bioprocess Research. 
  • The Arxspan ELN provides full support for chemistry persona and workflows.
  • The Arxspan ELN provides full support for internal and external collaboration.
  • No more redundant solutions and data silos for different disciplines. 
  • BioDrive: The same functionality and the same interface for enterprise or desktopBioDrive Enterprise embedded is in the Arxspan cloud solution and accessed through a web browser.
  • BioDrive Desktop runs on both Windows and Mac.
  • Data can be easily transferred between the desktop and the cloud
  • Work where you want, work how you want
  • Create, Import, and export sequences, plasmids, and vectors (supports common file formats)
  • Display, analyse, and annotate sequences, enzymes, and primers
  • Automatic detection of restriction enzyme digestion sites
  • Automatic sequence annotation with shared annotation libraries
  • Automatically calculate biochemical properties for any sequence
  • Design and plan your insertion cloning and linear ligation projects
  • Alignment of cloned (original) sequence with one or multiple sequencing files
  • Sophisticated search capabilities by sequence or keyword
  • Translate DNA sequence directly to an amino acid sequence
  • Standardise representation using HELM notation

Within the framework of the Arxspan ELN BioDrive enables organisations to:

  • Capture sequences and designs from the desktop to the enterprise 
  • Create templates for common molecular biology protocols and workflows 
  • Document and report experiments
