Antibodies were just the beginning

Backed by Google’s AI fund, Gradient Ventures, ASCEND is the industry standard for antibody selection.

Over 50,000 scientists in 16 of the top 20 pharmaceutical companies and more than 4,500  academic institutions use ASCEND to navigate antibody data to plan more successful experiments, with proven savings of millions per year in hard costs alone. But antibodies constitute just 40-50% of reagent failures.

What began with antibody selection now encompasses additional reagents as well as model systems, including:


Representing about 40-50% of reagent waste, with millions of products and hundreds of vendors

Recombinant proteins

Often the second highest source of waste after antibodies, with a similar number of products and vendors


Challenging to search for, with many not cited by SKU, and a need to find through other means such as sequence

Cell lines

Critical tools whose common misidentification and misuse can have a devastating impact on research projects


One of the most important new gene-editing technologies, with the need to select vectors, nuclease, guide RNA, screening libraries, and trans-activating RNA

Animal Models

Time-consuming to find—scientists often consult many papers to identify a model that has been successfully utilized in experiments similar to their own


A crucial advancement in molecular biology that enables scientists to better understand a specific gene function
