Our journey began in the mid-1980s, the early days of biotechnology. As an entrepreneurial spin-off of university research, QIAGEN created a simpler, safer way for laboratories to handle the painstaking tasks of preparing samples to explore the mysteries of DNA. Since then, we have expanded across the continuum of molecular testing to establish QIAGEN as a global leader in rapidly growing fields of molecular diagnostics and life sciences.
Today some 4,700 QIAGEN employees, based in more than 25 countries, provide expertise and service to customers nearly everywhere. Our people share a collaborative, truly global culture – plus a commitment to making improvements in life possible.
As a public company listed on the New York Stock and Frankfurt Prime Standard exchanges, QIAGEN embraces transparency, accountability and good corporate governance.
