Accessibility Statement

This is an accessibility statement from Addgene, Inc.

Measures to support accessibility

Addgene's mission is to accelerate research and discovery by improving access to useful research materials and information, which makes digital accessibility fundamental to our work. Addgene takes the following measures to ensure accessibility of our website:

  • Include accessibility as part of our mission statement.
  • Include accessibility throughout our internal policies.

Conformance status

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. Addgene is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 Level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard. 

We are currently working to improve accessibility by implementing internal processes to meet WCAG 2.1 AA standards.
