About the Company

Arbor Assays Inc. is an employee-owned life sciences kit developer and manufacturer located in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Founded 15 years ago by 3 ex-Assay Designs scientists, the company carries out the basic research to develop kits that allow academic, pharmaceutical, and conservation scientists to quantitate important biological molecules in different samples.

The company culture is unique and special. It is an employee-owned company controlled by a trust. This structure dictates that the company is not sold or passed on to family members – it is designed to be perpetual. The Company has a stable, fun atmosphere and feels like a family. There is a seasoned and experienced board of directors. The profit sharing is the same for everyone. There is a high level of community and environmental consciousness, with a portion of sales donated to charity. At the end of the day, the company wants to be on the right side of good. (What else would you expect from an employee-owned company based in Ann Arbor?)
