Welcome to CONGEN

Since its founding in 1998, CONGEN Biotechnologie GmbH has been an innovative Berlin biotechnology company in the field of molecular DNA and RNA analysis. Our core competency is the development and application of real-time PCR methods for food- and water analyses, clinical and point-of-care diagnostics as well as personalised medicine in the context of companion diagnostics. Each detection method is developed by us in house and validated in respect of the requirements of standards, customers and/or the market.

Our products are marketed worldwide by us and our distribution partner R-Biopharm under the brand names SureFood®, SureFast®, RIDA®GENE and RIDA®PRECISION, which can be used on all common real-time PCR devices.

With the CONGEN ServiceLab, we have created a competence laboratory that offers our customers numerous analytical procedures and competent advice.
