Trial program

Test our products in something new with no financial risk.
Last edited 9/29/2023

Our Abcam trial program allows you to test a product, if eligible, and earn its full value back for a future purchase by letting us know how it worked.

We value your experience because it provides researchers with more choice of reagents and helps with knowledge translation in the wider scientific community. So we’ve come up with a way to minimize any financial risks if you use a product in an untested application or species.

How does it work?

The Abcam trial program enables you to work with a product in an untested application or species with confidence that the product’s costs are covered, whatever your results. If a better alternative doesn’t exist, simply let us know what new species or application you’d like to test a product in. 

Once you’ve tried the product, submit a review letting us know the results  and we’ll give you a specific discount code for the full value that you can apply to a future order .  

We hope you love the product you test, but even if your experiment doesn't work, you can still claim your discount code. You’ll also receive rewards points for every review you submit, as a thank you gift for helping the wider scientific community. 

Four simple steps


Take your pick

Choose the product you’d like to test in an untested species or application.


Drop us a line

Fill out the form that matches your region, including the name of your chosen product and the application and/or species you’d like to test. Our scientists will get back to you as soon as possible to let you know if the product is eligible. If it is, purchase the product at full price and we’ll provide you with an inactive discount code for a future purchase.


Review and activate

Follow the instructions to set up an Abcam account (it only takes a minute) and submit your review with a quality image . The more information you provide, the more you’ll be helping other scientists.. Once the review is submitted, your discount code will be active.


Use your discount on any order

Your code must be redeemed within six months of it being issued. Please note that you’ll need to spend the whole discount code amount in one transaction as we're unable to carry balances on any discount amount you don’t spend. 

Usually buy through a distributor?

If you usually make your purchases through a local distributor, you can still take part in our trial program. Just let them know the product you’d like to try along with the application and species you’re interested in. Your distributor will do the rest​ and guide you along.

Why use the trial program?

  • Our trial program means you can test a product in a new application or species with full confidence that the costs will be covered, whatever the outcome.
  • We hope you love the abcam product you test but even if your experiment doesn't work, you’ll still be able to claim your discount code.
  • Your reviews are a great resource for other labs in the abcam family, and they’re a great help to us too. To say thank you we’ll also give you points for every review you submit.
