Say hello to affordable prices...up to 50% less than other suppliers!
As scientists ourselves, we appreciate that it’s tough obtaining research grants and funding. We want to support your research in every way we can, and so work hard to offer highly competitive prices for our products. How do we do this? Lots of ways really – firstly, we try to reduce our costs to bring the price down for you – perhaps by changing packaging, formulation, pack sizes, suppliers or the manufacturing process. Or, it may mean reduced margins – and that’s fine by us too (up to a point!).
But, we will not compromise on quality – ever.
The bottom line is that, overall, our prices are extremely competitive – Hello Bio prices are up to 50% less than other suppliers such as Tocris Bioscience and Sigma Aldrich. And we regularly check prices against other life science suppliers to make sure that we are giving you the best deal wherever we can.
And it's not all about price - named 'Researchers' Choice' (CiteAb Awards 2023), many of our products are reviewed and rated by scientists, and are cited in thousands of peer-reviewed publications - see what scientists are saying in the lab about Hello Bio products, all around the world.

What about product quality?
Based in purpose built labs in the UK and with decades of synthetic and manufacturing chemistry expertise, we know what we are doing!
We have a wealth of of experience working in the synthetic chemistry field – including commercial settings (such as Tocris Bioscience, Abcam, Ascent Scientific and GE Healthcare), the pharmaceutical industry and academia. Together with our own chemical and scientific knowledge, we are also privileged to have access to the expertise of a team of eminent and award winning scientists, our Scientific Advisory Board.
As such, you can trust that we will always offer the best quality products – our products are tested rigorously, both in house and by external suppliers and customers, using a whole host of chemical and biological techniques. These include HPLC, chiral HPLC, NMR, microanalysis, optical rotation, electrophysiological assays, Western blots and more. Read more about the Hello BioPromise quality guarantee.
