SCBT: Supplying Antibodies is Big Business

For years, SCBT has been one of the world's largest suppliers of antibodies produced in animals. A survey published in 2007 by Biocompare ranked it as the “top company” for all types of antibodies purchased. Another survey published in 2009 by Bioinformatics also ranked it as the largest. In 2012, a survey published in The Scientist ranked SCBT a close second among 15 of the biggest suppliers globally, while another 2012 survey by BioAstrum ranked the company second in the number of citations published in scientific journals in 2011.
