Setting the Standard For in vivo Grade Antibodies
Our aim is to facilitate the advancement of scientific discovery and innovation by providing high-quality antibodies at outstanding prices and backing them up with exceptional customer service. That’s why we take it upon ourselves to manufacture ultra-pure, low endotoxin antibodies - formulated without preservatives or stabilizers - targeting both well-characterized and novel antigens in the large quantities required for in vivo pre-clinical studies.
A Team of Snowmobiling, Big-Fish-Catching, Outdoor-Loving, Research Fanatics
Here at Bio X Cell we are big fans of immunological research. Our team is dedicated to providing high-quality antibodies and antibody production services at outstanding prices. That way, you can spend less time troubleshooting experiments and more time doing the things that matter most—like stimulating 4-1BB or blocking LAG-3 to promote anti-tumor T Cell responses, or just enjoying life outside of the lab.
