Ximbio: a new way to exchange knowledge and trade research reagents from Cancer Research Technology
Ximbio is a website for the life science community to exchange knowledge and trade research reagents such as mouse models, antibodies, cell lines and small molecules. Launched last year, it originates from Cancer Research Technology, the development and commercialisation arm of Cancer Research UK. Ximbio aims to unify the life science community to make research tools widely available and accelerate research. Researchers and Technology Transfer Offices can virtually upload their reagents to the Ximbio website, making them globally visible. For scientists looking for a specific reagent, Ximbio offers a fully searchable database, extensive datasheets, peer reviews and supplier options for over 1000 products.
