Comparing ichorbio to Bio X Cell and BioLegend

First, we’d just like to give a quick nod to the teams at Bio X Cell and BioLegend. They’ve both built great companies with good products to help life science researchers. So what’s the difference between ichorbio and Bio X Cell? Or the difference between ichorbio and BioLegend – or any other company in the in vivo antibody space for that matter? Well of course there are a number of product features and attributes that are different between the three companies (which we review in depth further down this page),

But the biggest difference is actually our DNA

The founding team at ichorbio wanted to create a company where our main focus is to supply products that have the lowest impact on the animals that they are used in. For us, the welfare of the animals used for in vivo research is the key consideration all researchers should take into consideration before beginning their experiments. So when we created the company our focus was on creating the highest quality reagents in the industry, and it is our belief that the products we created will directly impact the quality of the results obtained from them.

Looking at the 3Rs, our hope is that our products can help your work as follows:

Refinement

We have made incremental improvements to the purity of our antibodies over those currently in the market and have also worked hard to reduce their aggregation.

Both of these attributes should will help in the Refinement of your animal studies by allowing our antibodies antibodies to act with greater efficacy. 

Reduction

Our antibodies have the lowest endotoxin on the market which will help with Reduction by positively affecting the wellbeing of your animals.

Manufacturing in a ISO9001, GMP certified facility ensures our customers experience minimal lot to lot variability and improved reproducibility – again helping with the Reduction of the number of animals used in your research.
