This acquisition enables QIAGEN to create a complete workflow from biological sample to valuable molecular insights.

It strengthens QIAGEN’s rapidly emerging portfolio of “universal” products that can be used with any NGS sequencer as well as providing a key element to the portfolio of automated solutions for the GeneReader™ benchtop NGS sequencer workflow, which is currently in late-stage development.

CLC bio, a privately-held company based in Aarhus, Denmark, was founded in 2005 and has created the leading commercial data analysis solutions and workbenches for NGS. It serves leading research institutions and top pharmaceutical companies worldwide. CLC bio’s products are used as an integrating workbench to handle biological data generated by a sequencer through a series of analysis stages.

The addition of this portfolio follows QIAGEN’s recent acquisition of Ingenuity Systems, Inc., the market leader in solutions for handling biological data through the interpretation and reporting stages. CLC bio’s leading products are CLC Genomics Workbench, a comprehensive and user-friendly analysis package for analyzing, comparing and visualizing NGS data; and CLC Genomics Server, a flexible enterprise-level infrastructure and analysis backbone for NGS data analysis. The “cross-platform” systems offered by CLC bio support all major NGS platforms.

NGS initiative from biological sample to valuable molecular insights
QIAGEN is delivering on a strategic initiative to create an industry-leading portfolio of products and services to drive the adoption of next-generation sequencing (NGS) in clinical research and diagnostics. Key elements include developing and commercializing an innovative sample-to-insight workflow incorporating the GeneReader™ benchtop NGS sequencer with the QIAcube and QIAcube NGS instruments for full automation of pre-analytical steps, and also integrating the market-leading biological data analysis, interpretation and reporting capabilities provided by CLC bio and Ingenuity.
