QIAGEN Acquires AmniSure International to Add Unique Assay to Emerging Point of Need Portfolio
Date:5/3/2012

niSure, so the transaction also adds momentum to our strategic initiative to grow efficiently and effectively," said Peer Schatz, Chief Executive Officer of QIAGEN N.V.

QIAGEN further expects the growth impulses from offering this product to be catalytic to its small but growing Point of Need portfolio, which is led by the QIAGEN ESE Quant Lateral Flow Readers and Tube Scanners to serve the growing global demand for Point of Need diagnostics.

AmniSure is a diagnostic test for ROM cleared by the FDA for marketing and is reimbursable under most U.S. state Medicaid plans. The product is also approved in other markets around the world. The AmniSure test is a one-step, minimally invasive test strip using proprietary technology to detect tiny quantities of amniotic fluid in vaginal discharge. Results are available in minutes at the point of care. Accuracy o
