Danvers, MA, Dec. 5, 2011 - The Life Science Industry Awards are an annual event in which thousands of life scientists nominate and vote for the best performing research reagent supplier in 29 distinct product and customer communications and support categories. This year’s event was held on November 15th in Washington, DC. The awards are organized and hosted by BioInformatics LLC, a premier research and advisory firm that serves the life science industry. BioInformatics LLC surveyed its professional social network of almost 70,000 bioscience researchers to collect votes for the winners in each award category. Over 6,000 scientists from all regions of the world participated in the nomination and voting process. These scientists are engaged in all major facets of life science research, both basic and pre-clinical research and pharmaceutical R&D. Scientists voted for the best reagent companies only in categories relevant to their own research. Cell Signaling Technology (CST) is proud to have won two awards most relevant to our product offering.
For a research antibody reagent to work in any given application, it must be highly specific to its target and display maximum sensitivity to detect low amounts of protein where sample size is limited. All Cell Signaling Technology products are developed, produced, and validated in a number of applications at our headquarters in Danvers, MA. “We strive to generate the highest quality antibody products possible to advance biomedical research. We pride ourselves in our stringent validation and quality control protocols and are truly honored that our customers have chosen us for the Best Performing Antibody Award,” said Michael J. Comb, Ph.D., CST President and CEO.
Shortly after Cell Signaling Technology was founded in 1999, one of the key founding members succumbed to cancer. Since then, cancer research has been a key area of product and internal research focus. “We would like to thank our customers for recognizing the quality and innovation that goes into our product development and production,” said Michael Comb. “We hope, through our breakthrough reagents, to make a large contribution to biomarker discovery and the advancement of personalized medicine.”
