Life Technologies Corporation was a biotech company that served laboratory instruments to life science-based companies around the world. The company was founded in November 2008 through a $6.7 billion merger of Invitrogen Corporation and Applied Biosystems Inc. It was soon acquired by Thermo Fisher Scientific Corporation in 2014 as a continued brand name added to the collection of biotechnology products and services. The original name “Life Technologies” was actually the old name when GIBCO and Bethesda Research Laboratories merged in 1983. Invitrogen later acquired Life Technologies in 2000 and discontinued the name. Today the name Life Technologies operates under Thermo Fisher under brand names of Applied Biosystems, Invitrogen, Ion Torrent, Gibco, and Molecular Probes. Their most notable product line was their lab imaging systems including the EVOS XL Core, EVOS FL Auto, and their own E-GEL Imager.
