Life Technologies Acquires BAC BV, Expands Capabilities in Bioprocessing
Date:1/22/2013

CARLSBAD, Calif., Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Life Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: LIFE) today announced its acquisition of BAC BV, a privately held company based in the Netherlands, and a leader in the discovery, development and manufacture of protein purification products. The acquisition expands Life's capabilities and product offerings in the growing market of biopharmaceutical research and manufacturing.

"Our acquisition of BAC BV positions Life Technologies as a leading provider of end-to-end solutions that are widely utilized in the bioprocess workflow," said Tony Hunt , head of BioProduction at Life Technologies. "Combining BAC's current portfolio and pipeline with our pre-existing portfolio expands Life's product offering and enables us to compete more fully across the protein purification market. We intend to immediately integrate the portfolios and leverage the Life commercial platform to drive accelerated growth in this market."

Bioprocessing is the production and analytical testing of biologically-based therapeutics, which are developed in cultured cells or microorganisms, and include drugs, vaccines, biosimilars, and gene and cell therapies. Life Technologies' Gibco® brand is the market leader in cell culture media, a position it has held for 50 years, and the company more recently integrated its POROS® brand of chromatography resins for purification of therapeutic products into the Bioproduction portfolio.

The acquisition expands Life's existing portfolio by adding BAC BV's unique set of innovative and proprietary affinity ligands to the company's world-class POROS® resin
