Description: 

Qiagen is a global provider of sample and assay technologies. Sample technologies are used to isolate and process DNA, RNA and proteins from biological samples such as blood or tissue. Assay technologies are used to make isolated biomolecules, such as the DNA of a specific virus, visible for subsequent analysis. The company has developed and markets more than 500 sample and assay products as well as automated solutions for such consumables. The company provides these products to molecular diagnostics laboratories, academic researchers, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, and applied testing customers for purposes such as forensics, animal or food testing and pharmaceutical process control.

Qiagen's assay technologies include a broad panel of molecular diagnostic tests. This panel includes the digene HPV Test, which is regarded as a "gold standard" in testing for high-risk types of human papillomavirus (HPV), the primary cause of cervical cancer, as well as a broad suite of solutions for infectious disease testing and companion diagnostics. This location in Valencia was the U.S. headquarters until 2002, but then relocated to Germanton, MD. Qiagen's global headquarters are in the Netherlands.
