A description of a novel laboratory management software is provided. ScienceLabDatabase (SLD) offers a useful platform to organize a molecular biology research laboratory. The program manages stocks of biological samples, including plasmids, antibodies and cell lines, laboratory protocols and addresses, and it includes an easy ordering and funds managing system. Preformed data sheet templates help to store and maintain valuable information on samples or reagents and to facilitate the transfer of accurate information between researchers. Password protection regulates access, and simple button functions allow the use of this system without prior database knowledge. SLD is based on FileMaker Pro Version 4.0, which allows easy customization and import of preexisting data from other applications. The SLD program was successfully tested in several independent research groups and proved a useful tool to efficiently organize a molecular biology laboratory.
