Thermo Fisher acquires OptiCell product line
July 2007
SHARING OPTIONS:

ROCHESTER, N.Y.—Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., recently announced it acquired all assets of the OptiCell product line from BioCrystal Ltd. of Westerville, Ohio. Included in the transaction were trademarks, production equipment, inventory, and 12 patents related to OptiCell technology. OptiCell employs gas-permeable polymer membranes to provide a cell culture growth surface enclosed within a sealed environment. This innovative cell culture technology provides scientists with a device that significantly reduces time and labor required for sequential experimental steps such as imaging, cell separation, transfection, cloning, shipping of live cells, short-term cryopreservation and laboratory-scale antibody production.
 
"We believe OptiCell film technology holds great promise for improving the effectiveness and productivity of cell culture work," said Steve Silverman, vice president and general manager, labware and specialty plastics at Thermo Fisher Scientific, NALGENE and NUNC products.
