Quality Biological, Inc. (QBI) provides the life science research community with cell culture and molecular biology reagents, buffers, and liquid solutions.

QBI is home to a fully-equipped, ISO 9001:2015 certified manufacturing facility that produces solutions of superior quality and value. At the base of every product is water that exceeds industry specifications. Research is pure, and we want to keep it that way.

Founded in 1983 within the BioHealth Capital Region of Maryland, there was a clear need in the market for a manufacturing facility well-equipped with the resources and sterile facilities required to produce solid laboratory solutions. Given the vast number of local renowned research institutions such as NIH, JHU, University of Maryland and Ft. Detrick, the need for QBI remains today.

QBI’s products allow researchers to focus on their work rather than questioning the quality of their materials. This is done by delivering high-performance, high-quality custom products to support consistent and reproducible results in research, method and process validation, preclinical drug discovery and large-scale production of custom formulations for commercialization. QBI products alleviate researchers from worrying about overhead on manufacturing equipment, and allow them to solely focus on their work.

In an age of consolidation, big business and an increasing focus on large-scale applications of cell culture and molecular biology, QBI is dedicated to providing superior personal service. Our team members are empowered to be responsive, caring and committed to providing the absolute highest level of customer service to every customer.
