Why the small vials?

As a pioneer focused on delivery and service, in 2006 Abcam invested in automated storage and retrieval units called comPOUND, typically used by pharma and biobanks for compound storage. Like all automated storage solutions, these highly efficient and accurate units operate using bar-coded vials of a defined size.

The early adoption of this technology is unique in our field and provides you with a number of benefits.
