About Us

QIAGEN serves more than 500,000 customers around the globe, all seeking answers from the building blocks of life – DNA, RNA and proteins. We deliver Sample to Insight solutions for molecular testing, propelling our customers from start to finish to unlock new insights. This is how we make improvements in life possible.

Our Vision

At the heart of QIAGEN’s business is a vision for making improvements in life possible. We deliver on this promise by providing differentiating Sample to Insight solutions that help our customers to unlock valuable molecular insights encoded in the building blocks of life.

Some of the great challenges facing the world – issues of life and death, health and disease, continuity and change – find their causes in the near-infinite diversity of genomic molecules that serve as the building blocks of all life. Scientists, doctors, lab directors and other professionals committed to answering life’s questions look to QIAGEN for solutions in molecular testing.

QIAGEN is known to more than 500,000 customers around the world for our innovation, engagement, integrity, quality and passion. This identity creates relationships for our global team across the continuum from research in the life sciences, to molecular diagnostics and public safety applications in everyday use.

Our mission…

…is to deliver Sample to Insight solutions enabling QIAGEN customers to unlock valuable molecular insights faster, better and more efficiently – from the raw biological sample to the final interpreted result.

But Sample to Insight is more than just about providing smooth, end-to-end workflows. It's a strategic framework that puts the needs and challenges of our customers front and center. We want to identify key bottlenecks holding customers back and to deliver solutions so they can achieve greater success, ultimately helping them to exceed their own expectations.

QIAGEN is committed to making improvements in life possible.

Our customers are our inspiration

Our desire to innovate is driven by our customers passion in their fields. From doctors seeking solutions to diagnose and prevent disease, to researchers conquering new scientific frontiers and translating genomic insights into new medicines, we are inspired by their discoveries and breakthroughs. 



Our Products

Understanding DNA, RNA and proteins – the molecular building blocks of life – is changing the way our world diagnoses and treats diseases, protects public safety, and advances science. Our broad product portfolio encompasses consumable kits, instruments, and bioinformatics that allow our customers to unlock insights from these molecules and address molecular testing challenges from Sample to Insight technologies:

Sample technologies

Assay technologies

Automation systems


isolate, stabilize, and prepare molecules from raw materials such as blood or tissue, soil or water, or forensic evidence.


make molecules visible and ready for analysis, whether the goal is to identify a single pathogen or paint an in-depth genomic profile.


minimize hands-on time and in doing so, minimize handling errors and standardize sample processing.


interpret data and report actionable insights from vast amounts of complex biological data with the help of user-friendly software.



Key product areas

QIAGEN’s technologies provide versatile solutions for many research and diagnostic applications. Here you can find details of some of our most innovative solutions. You can explore the full selection in our Applications and Insights menu at the top of the page. 

Digital PCR* (dPCR)

This innovative method is a highly precise approach to analytically sensitive and reproducible nucleic acid detection and quantification. Making digital PCR both scalable and practical, while reducing the time to scientific insight by integrating the qPCR workflow into a superior all-in-one walkaway solution, are the core drivers behind the development of the QIAcuity digital PCR platform.

* The QIAcuity dPCR platform is for research applications only.


COVID-19 testing

QIAGEN is building a comprehensive portfolio of molecular COVID-19 tests. These address the needs of researchers studying the virus, and public health practitioners working to keep the disease in check. Our portfolio includes tests that detect active viral infection as well as antibody tests to survey previous viral exposure.


Tuberculosis (TB) testing

Each year, 10 million people fall ill with tuberculosis, and TB claims more than 1 million lives. TB is the world’s leading infectious disease killer – yet TB is preventable and curable.  At the first-ever UN High-Level Meeting on TB, world leaders committed to reaching 30 million new people with preventive TB testing and treatment by 2022. QIAGEN's QuantiFERON-TB Gold Plus is the world’s leading TB blood test, providing reliable, single-visit screening for TB infection. QuantiFERON-TB Gold Plus is recommended by the WHO and US CDC and is a cornerstone test in the global fight to end the TB epidemic.


Sample preparation

Preparing samples is the first essential step of any molecular analysis, one that is key in the world of diagnostics and fundamental research. QIAGEN has a proven track record in manual and automated sample preparation solutions for research and diagnostic applications from blood, tissue, and other materials.



The NeuMoDx system is an ultra-fast PCR automation solution for molecular diagnostic applications. It delivers fast turnaround times, scalability, and a streamlined workflow to address the need for accurate and timely clinical laboratory results that are essential in making critical decisions in patient care.



Multiplex syndromic testing rapidly surveys a large number of pathogens from a single patient sample at the same time. The QIAstat-Dx system is an easy-to-use platform equipped with panels addressing various syndromes, including a respiratory test capable of differentiating the SARS-CoV-2 virus from 21+† other respiratory pathogens. The system can deliver a result in around an hour, making its quick turnaround time a key feature in providing timely and reliable diagnoses when it counts.

† Number of targets varies by location.


As new applications of genomic science are regularly released on the market, we are continually innovating to provide customers with new products that make improvements in life possible.
