Gibco 60th
1962 – 1972
In the decade that saw the first stem cells cultured and the development of the first commercially available CO2 incubators, Gibco rose to the forefront, providing products to support progress in life sciences. In 1962, Leonard Hayflick made the important discovery that there is a finite capacity for normal human cells to replicate in culture and shortly after, Gibco was founded to make animal sera available for research use.
Celebrating 60 Years of Defining Moments in Cell Culture

Since 1962, we have been empowering progress in life science around the world. This year, we are celebrating our milestone anniversary by looking back at some of the most remarkable moments in cell culture. From breakthrough discoveries to moments of inspiration. From the lives saved to the lives touched. These moments are present in every scientist’s journey, and we are proud to be celebrating them.
