The new SelectScience® Seals of Quality 


SelectScience is proud to announce the first recipients of the new SelectScience Seal of Quality program, recognizing the products that have consistently received the highest review ratings. This program will further assist scientists in making important purchasing decisions.

The new Seals are assigned to approximately 0.1 % of products on the SelectScience website and are allocated in line with strict criteria based on the quantity of reviews a product has received and the average rating of those reviews. There are four levels of Seals: Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze.

Peer validation

“We are thrilled to announce this new program in order to help scientists see at a glance the top rated products on the market – in the eyes of their peers. This kind of peer validation can only help when it comes to accelerating successful laboratory work.” said SelectScience Editor-in-Chief Kerry Parker. “This program also provides valuable feedback to the manufacturers in our industry.”

The products recognized in this first tranche of Seal of Quality winners are used in vital research right across the scientific spectrum, though just one company — GATC Biotech — has so far attained the highest level of Seal, Platinum. 

Among the manufacturers celebrating their new Seal of Quality this month is DeNovix Inc., which scooped two of the new accolades in Gold.


We’re delighted to receive the SelectScience Seal of Quality. This award is great because it tells us that our customers really value our product and they really value our customer support.
