CARLSBAD, Calif., July 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Life Technologies Corporation
(NASDAQ: LIFE) today announces the launch of EVOS® FL Auto Imaging System with
an on-stage incubator designed to enable time-lapse, high-resolution live cell
imaging in a fully automated system that is priced to make high-resolution,
fluorescence microscopy simple and accessible for any lab.

Priced significantly less than other instruments on the market, the EVOS® FL
Auto Imaging System is a fully integrated platform capable of meeting a broad
range of research applications, from image tiling and multi-position well
scanning to automated cell counting. When combined with the incubator system,
which controls environmental temperature, oxygen and humidity directly on the
instrument stage, the cell imaging system enables longer live cell culture
monitoring sessions and time-lapse imaging.

"When I was a post doc, people spent more than a year getting a confocal
system with live cell chamber to work," said Karen Schindler, assistant
professor, Rutgers University, Department of Genetics."When I started my lab,
I looked for a system that was easy to use, had a small footprint and could
support our finicky cells. I was skeptical to have the demo on the EVOS system
done in two days. It was so easy. I realized even students with limited
knowledge could use it."

Simple and Economical to Use

At the heart of the system is its intuitive and automated workflow, which
underscores Life Technologies' commitment to developing innovative platforms
that benefit its customers and support their cell analysis research. The EVOS®
FL Auto Imaging System is designed for novice and experienced users alike with
minimal upfront training requirements. The system's proprietary EVOS® LED
light cubes also reduce operational costs, eliminating the need to replace
burned-out arc lamps.

"The EVOS FL Auto Imaging System provides an excellent value giving
researchers a full-featured, multichannel fluorescent instrument that does not
require an in-lab expert to operate," said Siddhartha Kadia, Ph.D., President,
Life Sciences at Life Technologies. "It represents our drive to provide the
industry with innovative microscopy platforms that reduce complexity and allow
our customers to spend less time on instrument operation and more time
analyzing results."

The EVOS® FL Auto Imaging System is for research use only, not intended for
diagnostic purposes.
