This is the most important part, and often it is the most neglected with many providers. But with ABS, it doesn’t end when we ship you a product.
Buy one get one free! 15% Off Today Only! President’s Day Sale! These are phrases that we associate with marketing. You won’t find any of this at ABS. We have never used any of these methods or marketing gimmicks to try to persuade you to buy something. In fact, we have done very little traditional marketing. Instead, we rely upon satisfied clients and the referrals that they provide to help us grow.
Advanced scientific research requires customization and understanding of the objectives of the research. Cutting edge research requires products and services that address complex questions and novel hypotheses. ABS is based upon customization that meets your needs. We have never been a catalog sales company because we recognize cutting edge discoveries do not come from a cookie cutter approach.
ABS is not entering a new market. This post is about Internet marketplaces and their limitations when seeking solutions for custom products and services. Connecting buyers and sellers for online transactions is commonplace and works very well for anything from household products to computers. Amazon is pervasive. In recent years, scientific marketplaces have come onto the scene.
When ABS started, we had little, if any, competition in the typical sense of the word. There were only a few small organizations that provided tissues and none of these did any processing, such as membrane preparations. Likewise, most cell culture work was done in-house. There was almost no outsourcing of the type of work done by ABS.
