Mass Innovation Labs Announces Adoption of RSpace as Digital Data Management Service for Member Companies
"Mass Innovation Labs, a cutting-edge incubator for scientific start-ups, together with the UK firm ResearchSpace, and its Ohio affiliate, Lab-Ally, have announced that the RSpace electronic lab notebook (ELN) will be made available to member companies to help catalyze their research and protect their intellectual property. Mass Innovation Labs has become the accelerator of choice for Boston's small startups and rapidly maturing life-science companies like Editas Medicine, Cellaria and C4 Therapeutics.
The addition of RSpace to Mass Innovation’s suite of infrastructure tools will facilitate accurate lab data collection and help with trouble-free commercialization of members’ discoveries. RSpace will also smooth the process of graduation from incubator to larger facility by ensuring that critical knowledge assets, IP provenance and due diligence procedures are not lost or disrupted by the logistics of growth, or the rigors of relocation. RSpace features an open framework and modern API that allow seamless integration with data sources like Dropbox, Box, Google Docs, MS OneDrive, and Github, as well as connection to verbose data held in file servers, sample management systems and more. RSpace will help Mass Innovation Labs members share and archive files securely, but also allows for easy bundling and export of data in ways that maintain integrity and traceability. Embedded metadata and digital signatures protect members' data claims even when information is disclosed externally to auditors, investors or other stakeholders."

This is quite a coup for RSpace ELN. The fact that our system was chosen over many products produced by much larger companies shows that MIL really understands the value of our "connected ELN" model.
