Instruct-ERIC - Image Database

Instruct-ERIC is a Research Infrastructure in life science, providing European scientists with funded access to high-tech equipment and expertise for structural biology research.

The iBase digital asset management system enables Instruct-ERIC staff across Europe to deposit and retrieve images from a central database. Structural biology is a very visual area of science and using iBase to group and label images has enhanced searchability, and the customisable metadata fields ensure that relevant information can be stored and exported with every image. The ability to link files, such as consent forms, to images has proven invaluable for managing GDPR compliance.

The iBase team are knowledgeable and approachable, and have provided expert support from the outset.
