Following the catastrophic events in Japan, Life Technologies’ primary concern remains the safety and welfare of our employees.  All of our Japan employees are safe and accounted for.   Our desire is to return to normal operations as safely, smoothly, and quickly as possible, in order to ensure our customers can be serviced effectively. 


Life Technologies is committed to providing humanitarian aid to Japan through the American Red Cross and immediately addressing any critical product needs the government may have.  If you would like to donate to the disaster relief and recovery efforts in Japan, we welcome you to join us by donating to the American Red Cross.

We are working with our suppliers in Japan to assess their situation’s impact on our ability to provide products to you.   Additionally, we are in the process of contacting our dealers and distributors to assess their individual situations and any potential impact on our customers.

We understand the urgency in getting you information as it relates to your work and business.  We are doing everything to assess the situation and in turn relay timely, accurate, and relevant information to you. 

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through this fluid and challenging situation.
