Below is the list of instruments supported by Benchling Connect. Check back regularly as we continue to grow the library of available out-of-the-box data connectors.

We’re also happy to discuss your specific instrument connectivity needs and use cases. We’re using this customer feedback as a key input to prioritize the roadmap of out-of-the-box instrument data connectors that our team is developing. 

In the case where an out-of-the-box instrument data connectors isn’t currently available, Connect offers tooling to integrate your instruments:

  • Sync files bi-directionally between a local instrument server and Benchling
