Life Technologies to Rebrand

Thermo Fisher Scientific has acquired Life Technologies. Both suppliers (Fisher Scientific and Life Technologies) will continue to operate separately (each with its own punchout in the PantherExpress System) here at the University, but we wanted to let you know that Life Technologies has decided to simplify its brand, and its punchout will soon have a different look and feel.    

How Life Technologies’ Rebranding will Affect You

The supplier name on your orders and invoices will not change.  Marketing materials and the punchout will have a new look and feel. 

 This is what you will notice:

  • Punchout: Starting August 17, the punchout will reference Thermo Fisher Scientific and feature updated content in line with the simplified brand architecture. The Life Technologies brand and references will be removed.

Current logo (through August 31):


New logo (after August 31):


  •  Logo: Starting August 31, the existing logo will be replaced by a Thermo Fisher Scientific logo as shown here:  

  • Other Changes:  We do not expect any other changes, but we will keep you posted if anything else changes.
