Invitrogen features new scientific online resources at ASCB Meeting

San Diego, Calif., December 11, 2006 Invitrogen Corporation (Nasdaq:IVGN), a leader in life science research, today introduced the newest member of its free online scientific resource collection, iGene, a platform that allows researchers to conveniently search for experimental reagents by gene or protein. This announcement as well as the launch of the Premo cameleon calcium sensor, which uses fluorescent protein color emission to detect calcium levels in live cells for cell signaling studies, were made during the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) 2006 Annual Meeting this week.

Invitrogen developed its suite of online bioinformatics solutions including the iProtocol Online Library, the iPath Online Bioatlas, and the iGene gene or protein search engine resource to simplify the transition from experimental planning to selecting optimal research products. By integrating all known human, mouse and rat genes and proteins into one database, the iGene search engine helps scientists quickly filter through more than 250,000 products related to their gene or protein of interest. Researchers can search using several criteria including keyword, gene accession number, gene symbol, or batch search to find all of the antibody, assay, protein, cloning, qPCR or RNAi products available for their specific experimental needs. Search results also link to external resources at the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) and to relevant signaling and metabolic pathway maps on the iPath Online Bioatlas. To explore this resource, visit www.invitrogen.com/iGene.

"As the leading provider of integrated research solutions, Invitrogen's goal is to drive standardization of technologies and methods by making available to scientists worldwide a series of top-quality, application-based bioinformatics tools completely free of charge," said Michael Stapleton, Vice President of Marketing/eBusiness at Invitroge
