platform based on transient transfection and they are now able to offer new services including

they have close links with the Universities, Biotech and Pharma companies in the golden triangle of
UK bioscience – Cambridge, London and Oxford.

portfolio which something we would not have been able to do in Oxford” said Dr. Ian Wilkinson, Head
of Research and Manufacturing at Absolute Antibody.
