Transcend the LAB

Emerald Cloud Lab: Remote Controlled Life Sciences LabEmerald Cloud Lab® (ECL®) is the only remotely operated research facility that handles all aspects of daily lab work — method design, materials logistics, sample preparation, instrument operation, data acquisition and analysis, troubleshooting, waste disposal, and everything in between — without the user ever setting foot in the lab.

A single Software
interface to the entire

ECL® Command Center provides a full platform for data analysis and visualization with a suite of over 4,500 functions, including advanced machine learning, image processing, and multi-dimensional analysis, and seamlessly integrates with our ECL Constellation® knowledge base. ECL Constellation automatically saves and annotates all experimental methods and data with complete metadata to ALCOA+ standards and verifies data integrity to ensure that everything is model quality. This eliminates the need for individual data visualization, analysis, ELN, LIMS, LES/MES, QMS and even ERP systems and streamlines them into a single coherent package.See How It Works

A comprehensive laboratory for all your needs

ECL® uniquely brings both automated and manual techniques to the cloud. Regardless of type, all techniques are scriptable and push-button reproducible on ECL. ECL’s groundbreaking lab execution system allows manual techniques considered automation unfriendly, such as stock solution generation, solid handling, rotovaping, speedvacing, and lyophilization, to be reliably automated and scripted in the same manner as automated liquid handlers and robotic workcells. This even includes all the foundational sample preparation operations (at all bench-relevant scales), from dosing solids to liquid handling to cell culture to reactors, used in almost every method.
