Part of our strategy is to work with partners that offer complementary high-quality products and who share our vision of enabling researchers to discover more. The agreement with Cell Marque will enable Abcam to extend its reach within the in vitro diagnostics market, with a broader range of customers able to access our in-house developed RabMAb products.”
Nora Lacey, President and CEO of Cell Marque, commented: “The addition of Abcam’s IVD RabMAb products complements our current portfolio.
