GE Healthcare Life Sciences is committed to carrying on this tradition of innovation and developing tools that help scientists make a positive difference in our world.The heritage of GE Healthcare Life Sciences stretches back more than 250 years. Since then, our tools for biopharmaceutical manufacturing and life science research have had an impact on the lives of millions. The Whatman filter was pivotal in chromatography work that led to the 1952 Nobel Prize in chemistry. Meanwhile, other filtration techniques led to the discovery of Sephadex.
Today, most biopharmaceuticals are manufactured using products that can trace their heritage back to Sephadex.
