December 10th, 2012

Corning Incorporated announced that it has completed the acquisition of the majority of BD’s (Becton, Dickinson and Company) Discovery Labware business. Over the coming months, Corning will integrate four of Discovery Labware’s main product platforms into the Corning Life Sciences business segment: plastic consumable labware, biologically coated plastic consumable labware, cell culture reagents, and ADME research products and services. Corning will be integrating the Discovery Labware business with Corning Life Sciences. Until the transition is complete, you should continue to order Corning and Discovery Labware products through your existing channels.

Sourcing & Procurement is currently working with BD, Corning and their distributor, Fisher Scientific, to evaluate and understand potential product line or distribution changes.
