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 aims to unify the life science community by making research tools widely available and accelerate research.
For scientists looking for specific reagents to use in their experiments, Ximbio offers a fully searchable database, extensive datasheets, peer reviews and supplier options.
Life science reagents companies can use the portal to easily source new products to augment their portfolios via a straightforward commercialisation process.
Researchers and technology transfer offices can virtually deposit their reagents to Ximbio. Each reagent record can be linked to the originating inventor.
