FLOW lab data and workflow management works with other tools such as SOURCERER (BEL's source estimation software), MNE open-source Python, EEGLAB MATLAB toolbox, FieldTrip software toolbox, and Jupyter Notebooks open-source softwareFLOW laboratory workflow and database management system allows for collaboration between labs with open source community tools for EEG, MEG and ERP analysis.

FLOW is included with the BEL EEG System One or can be acquired as a stand-alone product for all human neuroscience laboratories.

Powerful Database
Structured data science platform, providing a secure database, user authentication, audit functions, queries, storage, views of analytic workflows, status and reporting
Efficient Workflow
Scripting, linking technology and Docker containers support the scheduling of analytic worfklows with various data types to execute reliably for scientific rigor and reproducibility
Machine Learning
High performance computation including permutation resampling statistics and machine learning classification applied efficiently and reliably
Integrates the most powerful open source community tools for EEG, MEG, and ERP analysis, including a seamless link to Jupyter Notebooks

Now all laboratories running FLOW can have multiple users from lab, home, or any remote location around the world improving efficiency, collaboration, and supporting speed to publication.

Expand the reach of your lab by giving all your team members access to FLOW with no more multiple user license fees, a first in the industry!

FLOW is a containerized web browser computing platform for data acquisition, storage, analysis, and collaboration between labs. Multiple EEG acquisition systems can be connected and stream data to FLOW for storage and analysis.

FLOW provides access tiers with varying privileges to lab members and external collaborators. Actions of the computational process, data download, and data deletion are recorded in the database's ledger. For technically oriented users, FLOW supports a simple, streamlined, document-centric experience via Jupyter Notebooks (JN) IDE. JN scripts are executed in an independent container, data is accessed via API, and scripts are stored as part of the database.

New feature to be released Q1 2024!  Containerization of experimental analysis. With a single button click, an established JN script can be containerized into an independent container with an automatically generated user interface for parameter entry. This feature enhances reproducibility, transparency, and speed to publication.

All of the BEL Cloud Platform is developed under BEL’s quality system, meeting regulatory standards for future US FDA, Chinese FDA, and European CE certification.
