About CERF

CERF (Collaborative Electronic Research Framework) Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) was originally developed in the early 2000’s by Rescentris, Inc, based in Columbus, Ohio. CERF was one of the first commercial ELN software solutions created, and has consistently been first-to-market with a range of advanced features and technologies that other systems still cannot match. Although other Lab Notebook Software solutions have come and gone, only CERF can boast an unbroken record of continuous use and development, as well as a proven, award-winning track record of reliable sustainability. Scientific clients world-wide have trusted CERF ELN with their data for more than a decade and so should you. In 2012, management of Rescentris passed to a silicon valley group, but in 2014, the CERF HQ returned to central Ohio, where the product is now developed and supported by life-science experts Lab-Ally LLC. CERF is feature-rich and flexible. Although it was originally designed for use in GLP biology research, our customers include a variety of commercial labs, pharma companies, academic institutions, food, energy and biomedical companies, as well as healthcare organizations and small business that need to collaboratively manage files or documents according to good data and record management practices (GDRP) and  ALCOA principles.
