Research tools are crucial in developing and creating new research, however sourcing and obtaining these tools can be difficult. Ximbio simplifies this process for both institutes and researchers by providing a centralized location for life science research tools of all kinds – antibodies, cell lines etc., from over 150 institutes around the world.
“Good science needs the best research tools to carry it out. It is paramount that these research tools are widely and easily available to scientists so that we can maximize the opportunity for breakthroughs. At Ximbio, we are proud to be supporting life science research by making these tools accessible to any scientist that needs them, through our global technology transfer partnerships.”
– Robert Bondaryk, Ximbio’s Global Head
Ximbio works with researchers through the entire spectrum of commercializing their life sciences research tools (including those not under patent protection), from sourcing, and production, to sales, licensing and responding to inquiries for your reagents.
How does this affect you?
There are many benefits you can gain from making your research tools accessible:
Maximize the impact of your research
Spend more time on research
Encourage potential research collaborations
Protect your research legacy
Generate income for you and your institute
I want to deposit my research tools with Ximbio, how does this work?
The OC is your access point to joining the Ximbio network. Once you have created a life science research tool (cell line, antibody, small molecule tool compound, protein, peptide, probe, bacteria, yeast etc), please contact the Office of Commercialization.
The OC will gather the relevant information about your research tool (including applications, disease relevance, origin, components etc.) and decide whether your research tool would benefit from being made available to other researchers via the Ximbio platform.
Ximbio will then start promoting your tool to its large global audience of scientists in both academia and industry. Any requests by others to use your research tool in their own research will then be managed by Ximbio on your behalf.
