Abcam was formed in 1998 by Jonathan Milner, David Cleevely and Professor Tony Kouzarides FRS out of a lab at Cambridge University, UK. Current CEO is Alan Hirzel.
Abcam plc is a public limited company incorporated in England & Wales. Abcam (Stock symbol: ABCA.L) trades on AIM, the London Stock Exchange's international market for smaller growing companies. Its annual revenue is nearly £128 million for 2013/2014.
In May 2011, it acquired Mitosciences of Eugene, Oregon, a leading developer of antibodies and assays for mitochondrial research. In September 2011, Abcam acquired Ascent Biochemicals (now called AbcamBiochemicals) of Bristol, Uk, a specialist supplier of biochemical reagents including bioactive small molecules. In September 2012, Abcam acquired Epitomics of Burlingame, California. This has given Abcam access to Epitomics range of RabMAbs® rabbit monoclonal antibodies.
Abcam antibodies have been cited frequently in the literature. Labome manually reviews formal publications for information about antibody applications and about applications of other reagents and instruments.

The most frequently cited Abcam antibodies in the Labome publication database are listed in Table 2.
Abcam antibodies have been used in a range of applications as illustrated by the following examples. Abcam anti-H3K4me1 (catalog number: ab8895) and anti-H3K79me2 (catalog number: ab3594) antibodies were used to perform ChIP assays in order to show that gene transcription and chromatin remodelling change with the circadian clock in mammals . Abcam anti-Oct4 antibody (catalog number: ab19857) was used to probe western blots in experiments investigating the role of BRCA1 in the regulation of early embryogenesis . Abcam anti-H3 antibody (catalog number: ab1791) was used in western blotting experiments to study the role of histone H2A.X-F in modulating the cellular response to the rapid early cell cycles in externally developing species . Abcam CENP-F antibody (catalog number: ab90) was used in immunohistochemistry to study high CENP-F expression as a prognostic indicator of primary breast cancer . Abcam anti-pyruvate kinase antibody (catalog number: ab6191) was used to probe western blots in a proteomic study of keratinocytes after exposure to low doses arsenic and ionizing radiation . Abcam affinity purified rabbit polyclonal anti-BRCA2 antibody (catalog number: ab9143) was used in immunocytochemistry to study the interaction of the Fanconi anaemia protein FANCG with BRCA2/FANCD1 . Abcam anti-CD11b antibody was used in western blotting experiments to study the role of spatial coupling of cells' catabolic and anabolic machinery in facilitating the mass synthesis of secretory proteins . Abcam rabbit anti-GFP antibody (catalog number: ab6556) was used in immunohistochemistry to demonstrate that fetomaternal immune tolerance was regulated by epigenetic chemokine gene silencing in decidual stromal cells . Abcam anti-histone H1 antibody (catalog number: ab11079) was used to probe western blots in a study of the repair of DNA damaged by exposure to UV radiation .
Abcam's team of Ph.D. graduates attend a wide range of scientific meetings around the world to meet with the research community and stay up to date with the latest scientific developments. A list of the meetings that Abcam will be attending is available on the 'Events' tab of the abcam homepage. Abcam also invites requests from researchers to organise and co-chair scientific meetings (see: abcam tradeshow).
