When you upload a file to LabLog, LabLog becomes the host for your file, taking care of its safe storage, version control, and share links. Uploading files is by far the easiest way to use files in LabLog.
Now that you're ready to organize and secure your lab files, let's get to the details.
File storage limits
There are no limits on the size or the type of files you can upload to LabLog. Files as large as 500 gigabyte (GB) each can be uploaded at high speeds. File types like FASTQ, BAM, ZIP, DOCX, XLSX, image files, and any other file type that you use in your lab can be uploaded securely to LabLog. If you have a folder with many files that you want to upload to LabLog, you can compress the folder into a ZIP file and use the Bulk Upload button to upload and expand the compressed folder in LabLog.
Please note that your institute or organization may impose limits on the size and type of files that the users can upload to their accounts. Please refer to your training material for more details.
You can upload files in the context of your experiments and procedures in the Methods and Tasks sections of the app. Create or select a Step and click on the Upload button to upload files from your computer, Google Drive, Dropbox, and OneDrive.
You can also upload and share files using the messenger when you need to quickly share files with your team. This way you don't have to wait for emails with large attachments to go back and forth.
You can also use the LabLog mobile app to use your phone camera for attaching photos and videos to your notes.
The LabLog API allows automated and fast upload of documents as part of a bioinformatics pipeline or a custom workflow. Please refer to the API documentation for more details.
