ESP is a foundational platform for integrating lab operations.

Through collaboration, L7 Informatics builds comprehensive solutions to uniquely address your complete workflow needs. By incorporating your functioning IP solutions, ESP can alleviate your operational pain points and increase efficiency. Because operational excellence stems from better use of resources and faster,
higher quality results.

the heart of ESP:
A software foundation for scientific process and data management.

ESP organizes your scientific and healthcare operations around different data-rich workflows. ESP encompasses not only wet lab operations but also supports full integration of analysis and reporting, drastically reducing the amount of IT “machinery” required to manage, process, and analyze samples all while maintaining end-to-end data provenance throughout.

custom solutions for your environment
The choice is yours.
Whether you’re using our complete solution or complementing your existing tools with a handful of our apps, ESP enables streamlined sample, process, instrument, and inventory tracking to facilitate better communication between lab technicians, managers, bioinformaticians, and scientists.
Using ESP’s powerful REST Application Programming Interface (API) and Command Line Interface (CLI) tools, you can build connectors to most major laboratory instrumentation and software platforms. We’ll work with you to conduct a lab audit and help determine what option is 
right for you. You’ll have the option to build the connections and content yourself or have L7 
build them for you.

deployment + more info
Platform-agnostic implementation for maximum flexibility.

ESP was designed from the ground up to work in various deployment scenarios ranging from single workstations to the cloud. If you require computational resources, L7 will work with its infrastructure partners to develop on-premises appliance and cluster solutions, as well as multi-site and cloud deployments.
