Brief Boster History

Humble start

Founded in 1993 by histologist Steven Xia, Boster Bio is an antibody manufacturing company specializing in high-sensitivity, high-specificity ELISA kits and WB/IHC compatible antibodies.

It all started as a family-owned business. From a poor farming family, Steven Xia was the only one in the village to go to college, and the only one in the county with a PhD.

In early 90s China, he saw an underserved medical and research community and made a difference. It began in a small pickup truck-sized room with no capital. Despite all odds, he developed proprietary reagents for histology, becoming one of the few domestic suppliers of histology reagents when China heavily relied on imports.

30 years later

Since then, the company has organically grown into one of the top 10 antibody companies globally.

We have spent the last 3 decades perfecting our techniques and technology, and our products have been well-cited in over 50,000 publications. We thoroughly validated our antibodies for IHC, WB, ELISA, and Flow Cytometry to bring you trustworthy products.

We strive to provide the best service and have earned the trust of researchers worldwide. All products are covered by the Boster Quality Guarantee, each product will work as stated in the datasheet or your money back. We are actively developing and launching more products each month.

Our Commitment
