Life Sciences Supply Update | Life Sciences Products | Corning

Updated August 2022

Like many life sciences suppliers, Corning continues to experience longer than usual lead times due to unprecedented COVID-related global demand for laboratory products. While lead times for some products are improving, we continue to experience high levels of demand for others as laboratories and facilities ramp back operations and start new projects.    

We are taking multiple actions to improve this situation including investing in capacity expansions and improving processes to enable the fastest delivery of your product. In addition, we are working closely with our vendors to improve the supply of constrained raw materials as they also work hard to recover from the very high demand they have experienced.

We are maintaining a steady flow of deliveries; however, many products remain on a rolling backorder. Depending upon the product category, the delay could range from weeks to months for most of 2022. Please visit our product catalog for availability.

Returning to normal service levels is our number one priority. Please know we are working as quickly as possible to further increase our capacity and restore our level of service to pre-pandemic levels. Thank you for your business, patience, and support.
