Dear Customer,

after careful consideration, QIAGEN has decided to discontinue the production of the aLF Reader with May 30, 2021 as final date of order placement and June 30, 2021 as final date of delivery. We will continue to provide lifecycle and service support until June 30, 2026.

We are living in unprecedented times. The situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic issue is still very serious despite the contributions all of us are making in our daily lives. We would like to take this opportunity and thank all of you for your contributions and for sending our appreciation especially out to those working in the front lines to keep everyone safe, healthy, and fed.

The forthcoming Advanced Lateral Flow Course still is 6 months away and so far we hope to be able to meet you personally on October 27-29 at the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego. Our plan to offer you the most established seminar throughout the global lateral flow Industrie remains! Would you be interested to take part in this meeting as a sponsor? Please take note that early bird registration for sponsors is now open till June 1st, 2020. For more information click here.

We do not feel it is appropriate to send out updates regarding new keynotes or seminars while the number of COVID-19 infections still is increasing. So we will take a break from sending news for the time being. To learn about updates and additions we would ask you instead to check our site Of course, we will reach out to you if there are any changes coming up which are affecting the viability or scheduling of this event.
