Accelerating cancer discoveries through research tools

Who are we? is the first-of-its-kind global, non-profit, cancer-focused, research tools biorepository.

As part of Cancer Research UK, we are determined to accelerate cancer discoveries.

For 40 years scientists from academic universities and leading cancer centres have deposited their research tools with us. These range from antibodies, cell lines, organoids, small molecules, mouse models, cell culture media, proteins, vectors and other state-of- the-art technologies. We offer in-bound shipping, storage, production, maintenance, authentication, record keeping and worldwide distribution of these research tools to the wider scientific community.

Such collaborative effort has created a significant collection of research materials at global scale with best-in-class service that can support end users from research scientists, academic spin outs and emerging biotech to large scale biopharma to accelerate cancer discoveries and drive innovation.

Deposit your tools, join a global community, accelerate cancer research.
