Ximbio is a website created to enable the sharing of research tools within the global life science community. Research reagents, such as antibodies, mice and cell lines are the cornerstones of basic scientific research; without them, scientists could not test their hypotheses, validate their ideas or develop new concepts. Ximbio acts a marketplace for scientists to maximise commercial opportunities for these tools and share information. Ximbio raises the profile of research reagents with scientists, allows inventors to deposit them and enables sharing with the life science community.Through Ximbio:
Ximbio broadens the range of tools available globally. We are committed to support and advance life science research.
Ximbio originates from Cancer Research Technology (CRT), the development and commercialisation arm of Cancer Research UK. Ximbio will be operated as a business unit of CRT, and will focus on all areas of biology.
Ximbio has been created for the life science community to accelerate research. Through Ximbio, scientists have a global online portal to promote their valuable research and useful tools generated as a result of their hard work. It also gives them a channel to create commercial value from these tools. Ultimately, these opportunities can lead to progression of novel research.
Ximbio has been running for just over a year and is made up of a small team who are highly passionate about making it a global success.
