In October 2012, Corning acquired the majority of the Becton Dickinson Discovery Labware business. In 2015, the integration of the Biologics portion of the Discovery Labware brands (including Matrigel™, BioCoat™, FluoroBlok™ and PureCoat™) into their growing family of Corning Life Sciences brands will be complete. You will notice changes on their product and packaging artwork, but the products themselves and the catalog numbers will remain the same.
