Date:5/3/2012

GERMANTOWN, Maryland and HILDEN, Germany, May 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Point-of-Care Diagnostics Initiative is part of Grand Challenges in Global Health program funded by Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Grand Challenges Canada
  • QIAGEN's expertise and technologies will aid effort to create a low-cost portable testing platform for molecular diagnostics in the developing world
  • Development expected to be completed by 2014, enabling rapid integration of tests and transfer into clinical practice to save lives and reduce burden from infectious diseases

QIAGEN N.V. (NASDAQ: QGEN; Frankfurt Prime Standard: QIA) today announced it has joined the Point-of-Care Diagnostics (POC Dx) Initiative led by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Grand Challenges Canada to create a new molecular diagnostics platform to serve resource-poor regions of the world.

QIAGEN has already started the development of a portable instrument based on its advanced molecular testing technologies for Point of Need applications. The development of affordable and portable diagnostic systems is one of the 16 "Grand Challenges in Global Health," an initiative that seeks to enhance healthcare in the world's poorest countries.

QIAGEN is joining more than 20 nonprofit, academic and corporate organizations in the POC Dx Initiative, which aims to catalyze a "diagnostics revolution" for the developing world. The goal of this initiative is to create new platforms that enable high-quality, low-cost point-of-care diagnosis and thereby make systematic and sustainable improvements in healthcare in the developing world.

QIAGEN's role is to develop an easy-to-use, portable molecular testing device that can perform diagnostic tests in the field, far from hospital or laboratory infras
