Abcam was established in 1998 as a global web-based company providing high quality reagents for both academic research and the drug development industry. Based on the Science Park, Cambridge, UK, the company grew rapidly, expanding its antibody repertoire and customer lead throughput. As space became limited, Abcam soon needed an automated, reliable, low cost and footprint biobanking facility to store valuable antibody stocks. This was to replace costly, unreliable and large footprint traditional -20ºC and -80ºC laboratory freezers.
With an extensive stock range and large sample numbers, Abcam need fast, robust, secure, efficient sample storage and management.
This case study highlights a number of features of comPOUND which have proved to be of significant value during the development of this rapidly expanding company and helped to ensure high quality customer service and support.
