Date:10/18/2011

CARLSBAD, Calif., Oct. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Life Technologies Corporation (Nasdaq: LIFE) today announced that Jonathan Rothberg, CEO and founder of Ion Torrent, is a runner-up in this year's Wall Street Journal Technology Innovation Awards for the Ion Personal Genome Machine (PGM™), which "promises to sequence DNA more quickly and at a lower cost than other sequencing technologies," the awards committee said.

This marks the second time Rothberg has been recognized for his groundbreaking innovation and ingenuity by the publication.  He was the Gold winner in the Wall Street Journal's Technology Innovation Awards in 2005 for devising a way to move high-speed gene sequencing to a semiconductor platform and setting the stage for its use in medicine.  An American scientists and entrepreneur, Rothberg has founded three genomics companies, including 454 Life Sciences Corporation and Ion Torrent.

In less than a year since Life Technologies commercially launched the PGM™, the semiconductor-based instrument has become the best-selling, next-generation sequencing machine in the world and is democratizing DNA sequencing.  The PGM™ enabled two independent teams of scientists in Germany and China to quickly decipher the deadly E. coli bacterium that caused more than 50 deaths in Europe this year in just three days – a task that would have taken up to two weeks on traditional instruments.  

Scientists were able to use the data generated by the PGM™ to develop a test to screen food samples in less than a week.  The speed and accuracy with which the sequencing work was performed on the bench top instrument led to worl
