We have released a new dataset today which highlights the institutions that carry out the most research using antibodies.

Germany is a unique case, where the Max Planck institute outstrips other research institutes for the use of antibodies, but where we feel it is made up of a lot of sub-organisations and potentially shouldn’t be recorded as a single entity.

Recognising the 6.37% of German antibody use claimed by the Max Planck Society and placing that aside for the moment, we want to highlight the equally high 4.55% of antibody use claimed by Heidelberg University.

Andrew, founder of CiteAb, said: “Heidelberg is the oldest university in Germany – having been founded in 1386. Today the university puts emphasis on natural sciences and medicine, and molecular life sciences at Heidelberg enjoys particularly high national and international visibility.

“We recognise that the Max Planck institute, when all of its parts are combined, dominates antibody use in Germany, but we also see a great deal of strength here with Heidelberg which should be acknowledged.”

If you’re interested in obtaining a free sample dataset covering the global top twenty research institutions, simply drop Matt an email (matt@citeab.com). Likewise, companies who’re interested in institutions outside of the top twenty, in specific countries, or in drilling down into details about their market share at each individual institution, should also speak to Matt about obtaining our full institution dataset.
