LabTrace provides a transparent and trustable notary system for digital records. In the modern scientific environment, LabTrace will be used by all those that work in a scientific experimental setting and either formally shape the scientific project (e.g. investigators), monitor it (e.g. project managers) or collect the data (e.g. experimentalists, students). The LabTrace records then enable Sponsors and Forensic investigators to conduct a swift digital audit of the project and data flow that will be secure for both those who conduct it and those who submit it (no tampering allowed on either side). LabTrace allows the preservation of the chain of evidence which is key to the scientific endeavour.
