Announcing the 2018 CiteAb Award Winners

Celebrating the very best suppliers and individuals in the research reagent sector worldwide.

Antibody supplier to watch in 2018

Abbkine Scientific

For this award our judges looked to CiteAb data for the antibody company that has shown the largest increase in the number of times it's products have been cited in peer reviewed academic papers over the last 12 months. This gives recognition to smaller companies that have extremely strong growth rates - you don’t want to take your eye off them because they’re definitely going places quickly!

The fastest growing company based on CiteAb data is Abbkine Scientific, founded by a number of scientists and marketing experts in the field of life science in California, USA in 2012.

From the data generated through CiteAb we are able to gain a really clear picture of the way antibodies are used around the world. We can tell which countries are investing most in research using antibodies, which companies are seeing growth or decline, which antibodies are most successful and which areas of research are seeing growth.

Dr Andrew Chalmers, Founder of CiteAb, said: “Abbkine has shown significant growth throughout 2017, and has taken steps to further this growth including moving its headquarters into China so as to make the most of the burgeoning Asia Pacific reagent market. This is not a company content with the status quo - so keep your eye on them because they’re definitely going places!”
