About us

An idea conceived in a University of Cambridge laboratory in 1998, Abcam plc (www.abcamplc.com) began as an innovative and entrepreneurial start-up, spearheaded by like-minded individuals who shared a common purpose of providing the scientific community with quality antibody reagents, as well as trustworthy and up-to-date information about their uses and limitations. Abcam has now grown to become a leading global supplier of protein research tools to life scientists, whilst always maintaining the core collaborative values assumed at its inception.

Abcam supports life science researchers in their quest to understand the cause of disease and ultimately offer improvements to diagnoses and treatments. To achieve this outcome, the company both develops and manufactures its own products in specialist facilities across the globe, and sources from over 400 partners, offering scientists the newest, most innovative and highest quality research tools available globally, regardless of source. With a customer base of research scientists who require high performance products with detailed technical specifications, 64% of global researchers use Abcam products.

The company sells and distributes products in seven broad categories of research reagents, including: antibodies; quantitative protein assays; cellular assays; , proteins and peptides; chemical compounds; engineered cell lines and lysates; and sample prep and detection. Abcam’s information-rich products, together with expert customer support and fast delivery makes it the researcher’s choice.

Since its inception in 1998, Abcam has been propelled on an extensive growth journey; from selling antibodies “out of an ice-bucket” to delivering to over 130 countries worldwide, with over 1,500 employees, over 200 in-house PhDs and 100,000 highly validated products on offer. The business reported full year revenues of £260.0 million (12 months to 30 June 2020) and in October 2019 laid out an ambitious growth strategy with a goal of achieving over £450m in revenue by 2024. In 2019, Abcam opened a new purpose-built Global Headquarters at the Cambridge biomedical campus and in 2020 the company added a secondary US listing on Nasdaq to its existing listing on the London Stock Exchange (AIM) to support its growth strategy.

Our purpose –to efficiently enable scientific breakthroughs by serving life scientists to achieve their mission, faster.
Vision – to become the most influential life sciences company for researchers worldwide to support research, diagnostic and therapeutic applications.
