SCANTIBODIES Laboratory…A Vision Fulfilled…the Challenge for Today !
Tom had a vision of helping patients by starting a company to do what no other company was doing…making and selling antibodies to measure the immeasurable – hormones. Tom made a vow that if he was profitable, he would use the money from the company to help people and that is what he has done.
This is a story of one mans dreams. At the age of 19 Tom married and had to drop out of college. He moved to San Diego in 1970 where his wife worked as a secretary and Tom got into San Diego City College. Tom worked to get into UCSD to earn his Bachelors degree. In order to support his family after his first son was born, Tom worked as a research technician at Mercy hospital and a Lab Manager at the VA hospital. He discovered that there were no commercial suppliers of antibodies. Tom decided to measure what to date had not been measured – hormones with the use of antibodies. If he could make a go of his business of making goat antibodies , he would work to fulfill his original goal of helping people.
To date Tom has helped many different people with the profits from his company.
