ECL® brings the most comprehensive life science research lab on the planet to your fingertips from anywhere in the world. ECL is agile and scalable to a variety of missions. Some use ECL to access top of the line equipment more easily during Discovery; others use ECL to automate and optimize routine and ongoing workflows such as CMC; and still others operate startups, conduct academic research, and teach graduate level classes exclusively on the cloud without a traditional lab.
