Cancer Research Technology (CRT) has launched Ximbio, an online reagents portal for the life science community. Ximbio has been developed to change the way that research reagents are searched, sourced and shared, to broaden the range of tools available to scientists globally and support and advance life science research.
Ximbio will be operated as a business unit of CRT, and will focus on all areas of biology.
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.
