Welcome to the 2020 CiteAb Awards

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

Researchers’ choice

Bio-Techne

This award was given to the company that judges felt had most impressed its customers, based on nominations made by the researchers who had used the company’s products.

Dr Andrew Chalmers said: “Huge congratulations to Bio-Techne, which received a number of very positive nominations from its customers.

“I want to highlight that this is not just an award win for Bio-Techne, it is also a badge of honour showing that the company is remarkable in its customers eye, as this is in fact the third time in a row that it has won ‘Researchers’ Choice’!

“ACD Bio, a part of Bio-Techne, won this award last year, and Bio-Techne won in 2018 too - so the company is clearly getting things right when it comes to the quality of its products and its customer service!”

This was an extremely competitive category this year, with literally hundreds of nominations for a huge range of suppliers. However, the quality of comments from those that had used Bio-Techne’s products were yet again exceptional and the company’s continued relationship with its customers really impressed our judges.

Nominators said:

  • “Bio-Techne develops outstanding and robust products with exceptional technical support and a fantastic reactive customer service team. We were out of a product and they sent us what we needed within 12 hours!”
  • “Bio-Techne provided me with extremely useful support for several aspects of a research project - including study design, comparison of the most appropriate products, and the efficient and rapid reply to technical questions.”
  • “Bio-Techne is a leading company producing high quality antibodies (and much more) and an excellent service. The University where I work has been a real beneficiary of Bio-Techne's incredible support. Bio-Techne has co-sponsored some of our courses, and also provided the best antibodies on the market at a very acceptable price.”

Dr Chalmers adds: “The nominations we received for Bio-Techne really do demonstrate that the company is doing an exceptional job with both the quality of its products and of its customer service, and we congratulate the whole team on winning this prestigious award.”
