About Allcells-USA

Our History

Founded in 1998, AllCells is a biotechnology company dedicated to providing global researchers and biomanufacturing organizations with a dependable supply of biologically relevant, high quality primary cells that enable drug discovery, development, and manufacturing of cell therapies. Leveraging its expertise in hematology and immunology cell isolations, combined with on-site whole blood and bone marrow clinical collection operations, AllCells maintains direct access to a large repository of diverse donor profiles that can be further screened and qualified for biomedical applications. Utilizing its contiguous cell processing facilities, freshly collected tissue is immediately processed into purified cell types with unparalleled quality consistency. This optimal work-flow provides for the highest viability, purity, and cell count available. Fresh or frozen cells are shipped worldwide, or fresh cells can be immediately utilized in fee-for-service cell-based assays (“Bioservices”) designed according to customer criteria – delivering cell culture results/data to meet client project timelines.

AllCells is grateful to our customers for their support over the past 18 years! We have grown by adapting to changing market trends to ensure we are anticipating and enhancing our offerings to our customers around the world. We are pleased to continue fulfilling your special requirements and look forward to working with you in the future!

The story of AllCells begins with our Founder and President, Dr. Jay Tong. After completing his training as a hematologist, Dr. Tong began a career as a research scientist in the early 90’s. While working at Novartis Systemics, he noticed a common pain-point amongst his peers: how to get starting materials for their projects? Many of them resorted to donating themselves or asking friends and family. Even with these substitutes they were never sure if they could get enough samples by the end of the day for their experiments. “Why is this such a frustrating process? Are there any commercial entities to help?” thought Dr. Tong. Before the time of internet searches, Dr. Tong asked around from colleagues and determining that no commercial sources existed, decided to do it himself.
