Benchling's Solution

As new innovations in life sciences soar, scientists need modern solutions to data and workflow management. Packaged in a sleek, easy-to-use, cloud-native research and development (R&D) platform, Benchling has created an application suite that is purpose built for scientists, centralizing R&D data then used for discoveries from new gene therapies to next-generation gene sequencing. “Our key differentiator is that all of these applications are built on a common platform and data model,” says Rashi Takkar, a product marketing manager at Benchling. Benchling's common platform and data model enable it to integrate with third-party collaborators and the instruments scientists use in R&D labs. Benchling’s software lets users navigate nimbly through the data, “querying for insights at any step in the process,” says Takkar. 

Benefits of Using AWS

Benchling’s software is built on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and takes advantage of services such as AWS Lambda, which lets users run code without provisioning or managing servers. As a result, Benchling is simple to adopt and can scale and adapt to fit the needs of the ever-evolving life sciences industry. In fact, Takkar notes that “one global biotech leader made the switch to Benchling and saved roughly $3 million compared to custom development, replaced six disparate systems by Benchling, and saw an 85 percent reduction in time to data-entry time by having one integrated solution.” And, “since we are a native cloud service hosted on AWS, our customers can share data among internal and external collaborators very easily and take advantage of continual updates and features not available on on-premises systems,” says Takkar.
