King’s Soft (Chinese: 青软青之), a Chengdu-based software developer, received tens of millions of CNY (millions of USD) from GL Ventures in a Series A+ financing round.
Global provider of end-to-end solutions PerkinElmer served as its existing investor.
After this round of financing, King’s Soft will continue to develop laboratory software businesses such as LIMS (laboratory information management system), and independently spin off the company's automation division and establish a wholly-owned company "King’s Soft Intelligent Control".
Founded in 2016, King’s Soft is a high-tech enterprise focusing on product R&D and services in the field of laboratory and quality. The company uses King's as the brand in the field of laboratory software.
King’s Soft has independently developed and owned complete intellectual property rights since its establishment. The product lines include LIMS, ELN (electronic laboratory notebook), SDMS (equipment data acquisition and scientific data management system).
