At abcam, we believe the scientific community goes further, faster when we go there together.
And to keep on making ground-breaking discoveries, we need to work together in new ways. That’s why we’re constantly innovating to help scientists drive their research forward by providing products and solutions that play an essential role in fundamental research, drug discovery, diagnostic and therapeutic applications.
We started with a simple mission: to provide the best biological reagents to life scientists worldwide. Today, we help 750,000 researchers in over 130 countries deliver faster breakthroughs in areas like cancer, neurological disorders, infectious diseases, and metabolic disorders.

How we make abcam Inclusive and Diverse
Diversity and inclusion is about more than policies, programs and initiatives. It's about creating a culture that celebrates differences, enabling us to be ourselves at work, and offering career growth opportunities for us all. It takes everyone to achieve this - by working together across our global community to sponsor one another and elevate each other's ideas, we are unearthing voices to empower people and making Abcam a great place to work.
Achieving D&I has been a long-standing part of our journey but now, more than ever, we're taking fast-paced action for real change that will set us apart and make us best placed to be innovative, serve our customers and accelerate scientific breakthroughs that will have a positive impact on society.
