Abtrial program: test risk free

Use our products in an untested application or species without financial risk.

If you send us your results, positive or negative, of how the product performed, we'll send you a discount code for the full value of the product.

Regional applications

Updated criteria for new products

For a limited time, we have extended our Abtrial criteria for products labeled with a green 'new' tag.

This means you can receive a discount code for the full value of the purchased product when you tell us how your product performed in any application or species.

Products without a green 'new' tag will be subject to usual Abtrial criteria.

How to apply

  1. Submit an enquiry (regional applications above) with the product, application, and species you are interested in testing
  2. Our scientists will check eligibility and provide more information
  3. If instructed, purchase the product at regular price and email your order number to our scientists
  4. We will issue you an inactive personal discount code for the value of the product
  5. Submit your results, including an image, after testing. Make sure you mention your Abtrial discount code
  6. Once the Abreview is submitted, the discount code will become active
  7. Apply your discount code on your next order to receive that value off

Frequently asked questions

  • What qualifies a product for the extended Abtrial criteria?

Only products which are labeled with a green 'new' tag are eligible for the extended Abtrial criteria. Products without this label are still subject to usual Abtrial criteria.

  • If the product doesn't work in my experiment, do I still get the discount?

Of course! All data is useful to us and fellow Abcam customers.

  • How long do I have to use the discount?

The discount will be valid for six months.

  • Do I need to spend the entire discount code at once?

Yes, unfortunately, we cannot carry balances on discount codes at this time

  • What if I order through a local distributor?

Please contact your local distributor with the product, application, and species you are interested in testing for your discount code
