What is abmXchange?

Welcome to abmXchange where our lab is yours! If you have materials in your lab that you no longer use, why not trade it up for something new to use in your next research project?

Our program is designed to allow you to exchange your developed technology for one of abm's materials. It is a one-to-one material swapping program: a cell line for a cell line, a plasmid for a plasmid, or an adenovirus for an adenovirus.

Deposit your technology at abm for safety and allow our platform to bring forth your technology to the community for research use. In return you will receive benefits such as:

 Cut down on your research costs

Get a FREE abm material with a complete one-to-one transfer. Exchange your material with us and receive an approved abm material to use (research use only).

 Keep your materials safe in a backup storage

Deposit and get access to your technology with lifetime storage in abm's facility. Get depositor perks to access your material when you need it after enrollment into the abmXchange program.

Success Stories

Dr. Yanquan Zhang

Dr. Yanquan Zhang is a postdoc in the Liu Lab at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine. Their lab focuses on the regulation and function of the Polo-like kinase 1 (Plk1) enzyme in oncogenesis and chemoresistance. Their research provides invaluable insight into Plk1 as a drug target in prostate, pancreatic, melanoma and lung cancer.

Huitao Liu, Ph.D. Student



“Molecular cloning is inevitable for many biomedical graduate students. It could be time-consuming or troublesome in many cases. I like the abmXchange program as it provides a time-saving and reliable way to get the plasmids you need for free with endorsement by abm’s strict quality control.”

Huitao Liu is a PhD student in Luo Lab located in the Center for Heart and Lung Innovation. His major work in the lab is to explore the potential of virotherapy for lung cancer treatment.
