About Us

Meet the team.
Modernize the lab.

In an industry dominated by massive instrument and application vendors, Scitara offers an era-defining breakthrough powered by a neutral, third-party perspective. We’ve worked in labs for decades, understand the challenges of point-to-point technologies and have made it possible to break down the silos and liberate the data.

Our vendor-agnostic, lab-specific software enables science-based industries to integrate new and legacy instruments, applications and web services into a common, cloud-based platform. The result? Real-time data exchange that accelerates time to market—and scientific discovery.
