QIAGEN Unveils Initiative to Create Next-Generation Sequencing Portfolio for use in Clinical Research and Molecular Diagnostics
Date:6/25/2012

ions for clinical use, particularly to develop new medicines and improve healthcare with advanced diagnostics," said Peer M. Schatz, CEO of QIAGEN N.V. "While next-generation sequencing is viewed today mainly as a research tool, our initiative is to expand beyond this and to offer applications designed to address the needs of customers in clinical research and molecular diagnostics."

Key elements of this initiative include:

  • Content: The development of a broad portfolio of gene panels designed for NGS analysis based on QIAGEN's extensive offering of molecular content, including GeneGlobe (http://www.geneglobe.com), an online portal that offers access to more than 60,000 well-defined and characterized molecular assays. In the first wave, QIAGEN plans to offer eight preconfigured gene panels for use in cancer, as well as enable customers to create customized panels for specific molecular pathways and diseases.
  • Sample technologies: An extensive range of NGS sample preparation products is planned to be launched that are based on QIAGEN's global leadership position in sample technologies and enzymology.
  • NGS module: A previously undisclosed NGS benchtop sequencer is in late stages of development with Intelligent Bio-Systems, Inc. (IBS), a privately held U.S. company that QIAGEN has acquired. This novel system can process multiple samples in parallel with highest flexibility and performance, and benefits from the use of proprietary sequencing by synthesis (SBS) technology exclusively licensed from Columbia University.

    Building on elements of previous IBS designs as well as on QIAGEN technologies, this new system - which is expected to enter beta testing with customers in 2012 - seeks to offer a new dimension of benefits and cost savings. Key features include new sample technologies and software as well as the ability to process up to 20 individual samples in
