“This lab was a big project and I had seamless transition with ABI. There were doubts with the tissues, as it was not a very easy project. Right from the beginning, you have helped us with selection of tissues for the right specialties, the surgeon feedback on tissues were great. The tissue packaging, as well as the logistics end was superbly executed. Thank you very much for your help and I surely will work with you in future.”

- J.T., Director of Surgical Training

"The tissue bundles worked really well for our testing! I don't think there is anything more that could have been done to prep them, it was exactly what we needed."

- E.L., Bioengineer

"We have been using ABI for several years. Our orders vary from a handful of stomachs to 1,000 carotid arteries a day. We have ordered just about every tissue they offer and are always pleased with the results. We have tried a few other suppliers due to needing 1,000+ pound pigs and the quality is never comparable. When ordering from ABI the digestive system is rinsed well, the blood vessels are trimmed closely without nicking them, and the pleura layer of the lungs is always intact. Any time we have a special request they have been able to accomodate our needs and in several instances have suggested better alternatives. The tissue is placed in insulated coolers with ice packs and plenty of packaging peanuts to keep the tissue in place and chilled until it arrives. Any time we have issues with FedEx, Deb always steps in and handles it so we do not have to waste our time getting it resolved. Sometimes this involves getting tissue later in the day and sometimes it involves re-harvesting. ABI, and Deb in particular, goes above and beyond to make sure our needs are met."

"I wanted to make a testimonial about ABI. From the first day of working with ABI I have experienced the care and professionalism that the company represents. ABI through the 15 years of working with them has shown their commitment to the animals, staff and client/customers. Their customer service is exemplified by the consistent follow up and follow through given by this team, which is by far one of the best if not best attribute and refreshing quality from my interaction with them. Another example of how well ABI treats its customers, is whenever we have had an order, pricing and/or delivery issues they seem to always have a solution or accommodation ready within a timely manner. Another thing I can say is there have been times where we have been difficult with our needs and ABI still maintained their professionalism and courtesy. I do not know of many companies and or organizations that cater to the needs and wants of their customers like ABI does. I wish ABI could train other companies just a third of what it means to give professional customer service and guidance. Great job ABI, please keep it up!"

"Having scheduled an impromptu tissue lab a week out, I asked a colleague for a recommendation of a company to order stomach and bowel from. He provided me with ABI's contact information and told me they should be able to make the timing work and that they are very nice. My order was placed and product was to be delivered the day before my 7 a.m. lab. Although FedEx was advised to drop product without signature, I received a note saying they would re-attempt delivery the next day at 10:30 a.m., which would have been too late. I reached out to FedEx, then to Deb at ABI to explain my situation.  Deb went above and beyond to contact FedEx to resolve my situation for me, provided contingency plans of possibly getting on the next harvest and havng a team member drive product out to me as a back up, and was compassoinate about resolving the shipping comany's error while ensuring the least inconvenience to me. Luckily, FedEx was able to circle back to me a few hours later and all was rectified.  I truly appreciate ABI's efforts in ensuring I had what I needed to do my job and their willingness to do whatever it takes to make sure their customers have what they need. I will be sure to recommend their services in the future."
