Laboratory Data Management

Arxspan BioDrive

Move your research into the fast lane with Arxspan’s comprehensive tool
for molecular biology, BioDrive™. A single platform that caters to the needs
of today’s diverse research teams.

All biological data

in one place

Molecular Biology
Perfect for designing and executing new research projects in the multi-omics fields (genomics, epigenomics, transcriptomics).
Sequencing Data
Management and alignment of sequencing data that can be easily shared within the secure platform.
Desktop & Cloud
The BioDrive application can be used as a desktop application or in the cloud.


BioDrive is a molecular biology module for delivering a single, integrated data management platform for crossfunctional research teams.

Its 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.

Typical enterprise ELNs limit users to two options: a chemistry ELN with no molecular biology support or a molecular biology ELN with no chemistry support. This is unacceptable as it results in many companies having multiple or duplicate solutions, with data in silos which are not shared across project teams.

The Arxspan BioDrive molecular biology solution is an application integrated into Arxspan's Electronic Lab Notebook. It is purpose-built for biologists and chemists working in molecular biology and sequencing.  Arxspan's BioDrive molecular biology software provides all the features you expect from a dedicated, integrated ELN for molecular and cell biology, with the added benefit of providing both chemistry and biology functionality.  Plus, the BioDrive application can be used either with a desktop application or in the cloud giving you the freedom to do more.
