Antibody Solutions was founded in 1995 by John Kenney and Dennis Gould. Kenney had managed the monoclonal antibody (McAb) development laboratory for Syntex Research and Gould managed the McAb production facility for Syva Diagnostics. Kenney and Gould were assisted in the startup of the company by Barry Bredt. Bredt had the foresight to acquire the domain name www. antibody.com for Antibody Solutions.

Bredt later became Director of the UCSF General Clinical Research Center, SFGHMC. He was a pioneer of the low cost HIV AIDS Diagnostics "EASYCD4".[1][2] Bredt died on Sunday, April 8, 2007. Gould left the company in 1997 and eventually became a Vice President for Sepragen Corporation.
