BALA CYNWYD, Pa., April 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Life Technologies Corp. ("Life" or the "Company") (Nasdaq- LIFE-News) relating to the reported acquisition by Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. ("Thermo Fisher").

Under the terms of the transaction Life Shareholders will receive $76 in cash for each share of Life stock they own. The investigation concerns possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by the Board of Directors of Life for not acting in the Company's shareholders' best interests in connection with the sale process. The market for gene tests, like the one sold by Life, may grow to $25 billion within a decade as more doctors use a patient's genetic makeup to tailor treatments.
