Announcing the 2018 CiteAb Award Winners

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

Researchers’ choice


For the 2018 awards, we've widened the remit of the coveted Researchers Choice award to include suppliers from across numerous reagent types.

Bio-Techne really stood out to our judges in this category. The company, which trades under a number of brands including R&D Systems, Novus Biologicals, Tocris Bioscience, ProteinSimple, BiosPacific, Cliniqa and ACD, received numerous nominations from researchers around the world, all outlining the excellent quality of products and standards of service they have experienced. Nominees said:

  • I have been consistently impressed with the high quality of Bio-Techne’s reagents for the ubiquitin field.
  • I have utmost confidence in Bio-Techne’s products and have been able to discuss my personal research needs with the company.
  • I have worked with Bio-Techne over many years and cannot find fault with them.
  • The products are of great quality and the sales team is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. It is always a good sign when you see the same staff year after year and it’s great to be able to build personal relationships - it really encourages trust and collaboration.

Dr Andrew Chalmers, Founder of CiteAb, said: “This is always one of the most competitive categories in the awards, but we’ve never seen one company get quite so many nominations as Bio-Techne did this year. Clearly the company has a very loyal customer base, earned through providing excellent products. Congratulations to Bio-Techne!”
