QIAGEN Lake Constance GmbH came into existence in July 2010 when Embedded System Engineering (ESE) GmbH changed its name after joining the QIAGEN family. Originally a spin off from Perkin Elmer Bodenseewerk, the privately owned ESE GmbH was founded in 1997.
QIAGEN Lake Constance is a center of excellence for optical detection and point-of-need instrumentation. We focus on the development and production of portable instruments for point-of-need testing. Our easy to use original equipment manufacturer (OEM) products enable our customers to develop their final product, either a lateral flow technology or a nucleic acid-based / isothermal amplification assays device. These rapid test devices have countless different applications, from food and feed safety testing to veterinary analysis, and many more.
We work according to Quality Management ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 standards and are an FDA-registered contract manufacturer.
Our vision is to improve quality of life by being the leading system provider for decentralized Life Sciences and In Vitro Diagnostics testing.
