Free & Paid Usage
These questions are related to the various plans we offer.
Can I use Labvanced for free? What will be the limitations?
Yes you can use Labvanced completely for free. Experiment creation will be unlimited and without any restrictions as long as you do not use more than 300Mb of storage space. You can also record 10 subjects per month for free. Further recordings will be possible, but data access will be restricted for datasets exceeding the quota in the free account.
How much does Labvanced cost in the paid/premium version?
All experiment creation is completely free for everyone. Charges begin to apply when recording more participants than the free license allows. The cost depends on the license that you want to use. There are two categories of licenses: academic and enterprise.
Academic licenses are designed for students, professors, and research labs. We offer 3 kinds of licenses in this category: the free license, the single researcher license, and the group license. Each has different specifications, benefits, and prices.
The enterprise license includes a custom / professional license. For this type of license, our team creates your study for you, tailored to your unique needs. This is ideal for larger research labs or companies.
For more information, see our pricing page on the main site or contact us via the live chat.
Does Labvanced offer discounts for students?
Yes. we offer a 25% discount for undergraduate students. Find more information here
What is the difference between a Department License and a Research Group License?
These two license plans are somewhat similar, as both allow unlimited study publishing and data recording for its members. But there are some key differences with regarding to who can use the license and how sharing and collaboration works.
If you own a Department License:
You can share (shared editing) your study with internal and also external collaborators, as long the collaborator her/himself also has a research group license. Importantly, the collaborator does not need to be in the same license as you.
You are allowed to add external collaborators to your own license as long as this is a project specific collaboration. I.e. you and the collaborator work on the same study/project.
If you own a Research Group License:
You can only share your study internally with other members of your group license, but you can be invited by a departmental license holder to join external projects.
All members of the license must work in the same research group under the same institution and university. Two different labs within the same university/institution are not allowed to share/use a single Research Group license.
Redemption codes can be redeemed by users with any type of license, whether it is free or paid. These codes give the user access to more recordings than their usual limit - for free! If you receive a code, it will detail how many recordings will be added to your account. They can be used within the same study, or across different studies.
Redemption codes are also known as "Classroom Licenses." They can be given to students in a class who are learning Labvanced and need more recordings to test their studies. Professors can purchase classroom licenses and redemption codes for this purpose.
The codes can be redeemed by going to the My Account tab and typing the code into the "Redeem Code" box. Alternatively, when signing up for Labvanced, you can put in a redemption code when creating your account.
If you already own a Lab License, you will not see a place to redeem codes because your license already includes unlimited recordings.
If you own a Department license, you can purchase codes to share with your lab members and/or students. This type of code is active for 6 months and includes the ability to share studies with people who have entered the same code (and still includes the number of recordings included in the code). In this way, a professor can monitor their students and the students can form teams and share studies among themselves.
