Industry-Leading Technologies

The merger of Applied Biosystems and Invitrogen brought together an intellectual property and product portfolio that is truly enabling for many applications in molecular and cellular biology.  Whether your interest is in detecting nucleic acid targets, proteins or small molecules, isolating cells or viruses, or analyzing tissues or whole animals, we have the toolbox for you.  While we retain some of our technologies for use solely by our own company, many of our technologies are available for license, and we are glad to help you identify the technologies and products that will best support your own product and service development projects, and help you be as competitive as possible in your target markets.

Our tremendous experience in product development has provided us with extensive expertise in matching assays to instruments – let us help you match reagents to your instrument platforms, or instruments to your reagent platform. 
Our portfolio of highly respected technologies includes:

  • Nucleic Acid Amplification Intellectual property, reagents, controls and instruments to help you prepare samples, amplify, standardize and detect results using PCR as well as many other amplification techniques for RNA and DNA.
  • Cloning and Expression Invitrogen® cloning technologies for simple, easy to use expression vector creation.
  • Nucleic Acid Modification Enzymes and Polymerases Best in class nucleic acid amplification and sequencing enzymes, reverse transcriptases, nucleases, and many more, from our legacy Applied Biosystems® and Invitrogen® businesses.
  • Sequencing Tools A range of detection and enzyme technologies, as well as sample preparation tools and instruments, for use in capillary electrophoresis as well as next generation sequencing.
