What are Corning Life Sciences' key focus areas for product development?
Corning offers a portfolio of beginning-to-end solutions for key life science research applications: cell culture, scale –up and cell therapy, genomics, drug discovery, chemistry and microbiology. Our solutions include the leading brands for plasticware such as Corning®, Falcon® , Axygen® and Matrigel® as well benchtop equipment.
Why has Corning introduced additional brands such as Axygen®, Gosselin™, Falcon®, Matrigel®, Gentest™, and PureCoat™?
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. In December 2011 Corning acquired Mediatech Inc., who manufacture media, sera and reagents primarily for the US market, and in November 2012 Corning acquired the majority of BD’s Discovery Labware business, including the Falcon plasticware line, a range of biological surface and ECMs including Matrigel, and the Gentest range of products and services for ADME/Tox applications.
Although we are one company, we continue to use the Corning, Costar, Axygen, Gosselin and Falcon brands for our plastics products. Our customers recognize and trust these high quality branded products.
