In a few sentences, tell us what your startup is all about!
|When it comes to note-taking and data sharing, scientists are finding it tough to choose between the versatility of paper notebooks and the robustness of online lab notebooks. The solution is to use a native notebook app that is flexible enough to allow creative note-taking and sharing both online and offline.
elucidaid reduces the time it takes to jot down new ideas and data, straight into your computer. All note are secured by encryption and backed up automatically on the cloud. elucidaid revolutionizes the way colleagues share documents via the cloud by a simple drag and drop.
Scientific images and drawings can be easily created or modified right from inside the app with simple tools that don’t slow down work and make the transition from paper super easy.

Let us know a bit about your team, who are the key team members and what is their role?
|We are scientists who happen to code. We value accuracy, efficiency, and collaboration. Our mission at elucidaid is to provide the research community with user-friendly software to enable efficient and elegant note taking. Each member of our team has experience working at the lab bench and was becoming increasingly frustrated with the amount of time it took to maintain and search through paper lab notebooks. We developed elucidaid with the goal of making it easier to record experimental protocols and data, ranging from molecular cloning to genomic sequencing. Our software also allows researchers to share their findings, fostering team building and collaboration. By saving time and energy in storing lab data, we hope our software leads you to faster scientific breakthroughs.|
Why did you choose this particular idea and concept to build your startup on?
Traditionally electronic lab notebook solutions have been built using legacy technology. This has caused slow and suboptimal performance for scientists who need to jot down ideas and notes fast. Not to mention complex user interfaces that demand user training. We founded elucidaid to address these problems.
In addition, most software solutions require constant access to the internet to function properly. This does not suit a laboratory environment where researchers take notes on the go, in isolated rooms, tissue culture rooms, underground, at a conference, or even on an airplane.
elucidaid solves all of the above problems by providing native apps that are backed by powerful cloud services. Jot down ideas, data, and experiments in a snap using the easy-to-use intuitive interface of elucidaid.
