  • Automated Magnetic Bead Based Extraction

    Manual DNA extraction methods are often very time-consuming and the outcome (success) strongly depends on the experience of the laboratory staff, the extraction method and the sample matrix. The extraction of nucleic acids is a major challenge for food labs caused by the high variability of sample matrices. Inhibitory substances like alcohols (ethanol, isopropanol), tensids […]


    CONGEN offers 1.5 millionen SARS-CoV-2 analyzes

    As one of the first manufactures CONGEN designed a molecular test kit for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 . This method enables the qualitative and specific detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA from human respiratory samples. Until the first development, CONGEN expanded the production capacities, continuously. So far, CONGEN offered more than 1.5 million analyzes for the health […]

  • System Verification with SureCycle®

    To secure precise result laboratories need to control their devices periodically. SureCycle® is a thermosensitive duplex real-time PCR to control the correct temperature during the annealing- and denaturation step. The kit is designed to control compatibility of plastics like tubes, plates and/or foiles and to verify the correct temperature of the real-time cycler. SureCycle® is […]

  • World-Sepsis Day on September 13th

    Every 3.5 seconds 1 human die; 7 to 9 million people each single year caused by sepsis. Sepsis is a life-threatening illness caused by your body’s response to an infection. Everybody can get sepsis caused by infection connected with different types of microorganisms as bacteria, viruses, funghi or parasites. Sepsis can  lead to shock, multiple […]
