Is Corning Microarray Technologies part of Corning Life Sciences?
Corning has discontinued the commercialization of its printed cDNA product lines; however, this does not impact Corning's GAPS coated slides or accessories. The Corning Life Sciences sales force and distribution network now represent the Corning GAPS II coated slides and hybridization chamber product lines.
Corning has recently launched UltraGAPS™ coated glass slides. This new product features even higher quality, consistency and performance than the standard GAPS II slides. Protocols have been developed for UltraGAPS slides to enable printing of both cDNA and long oligos, meeting the varied needs of microarray customers.
Your Corning representative can guide you to the best choices in PYREX® glassware, quality pipette tips, tubes, filters, and a wide variety of high technology plastics for cell culture, genomics, and high throughput screening, and now GAPS coated slides for printing cDNA or oligo arrays.
Corning remains committed to research and development of innovative tools for life science research and as such, our R&D efforts continue to move forward.
What are Corning Life Sciences' key focus areas for product development?
Corning focuses development on products that support cell culture, liquid handling, laboratory filtration, and assays/high throughput screening (surface technologies). Our comprehensive selection of laboratory plasticware, glassware, and equipment ranges from standard laboratory glassware to specialized plasticware such as microplates and CellCube® Chambers. For a complete list of our product families, refer to our product catalog.
Why has Corning Life Sciences introduced the Costar®, Axygen® and Gosselin™ brands?
Corning has been developing laboratory products for scientists since 1915, starting with our PYREX® glassware. In the 1970s, Corning added plastic labware to its growing line of laboratory products. Corning acquired Costar Corporation in 1993, becoming a key manufacturer of high quality, high performance lab tools for the Life Sciences. In 2009 Corning acquired Axygen Scientific, broadening our portfolio of sample handling, delivery, HTS screening and PCR storage products. Later in 2010, Plaslab SAS was acquired introducing the Gosselin™ portfolio of disposable labware for quality testing labs.
Although we are one company, we continue to use the Corning, Costar, Axygen and Gosselin brands for our plastics products. Our customers recognize and trust these high quality branded products.
Where are Corning's laboratory products manufactured?
Corning manufactures high quality products in five state-of-the-art facilities: Kennebunk, Maine; Oneonta, New York; Big Flats, New York; Monterrey, Mexico; and Reynosa, Mexico. All manufacturing is completed under stringent product guidelines to provide the highest level of consistency and quality.
