Mikrogen is investing intensive research effort in the development of novel diagnostic technologies. The future diagnostic platforms enable rapid and cost-effective diagnosis of infectious and auto immune diseases.

Mikrogen is engaged in the development of innovative detection technologies like chip and micro arrays which ensure a fully automated, high-throughput and miniaturised detection of pathogen specific antibodies and nucleic acids.

Multi parameter tests like the Luminex® system, based on the xMap® technology, allow the simultaneous detection of up to 100 different analytes.


Mikrogen belongs to the first pioneers producing high quality test systems for clinical diagnostics based on recombinant antigens.

Mikrogen develops and markets three different product types: ELISA, immunoblot and Luminex® Assay. The recomWell tests (ELISA) are highly sensitive and specific screening tests. The immunoblot assays - recomBlot and recomLine - as well as the Luminex® assays, are most sophisticated confirmatory tests and can be used for further improved differentiation i.e. the time of infection. In addition Mikrogen conducts contract manufacturing for test kits.

Mikrogen produces recombinant antigens for many important research institutes and for various well-known international diagnostic companies.

Mikrogen offers advanced solutions for automation and standardisation. Laboratory processes are improved in speed, accuracy and reliability.
Software: recomScan is a professional strip assay analysis software for the automated analysis, interpretation and data management.
Instruments: Mikrogen offers support for various fully automated analytic devices for ELISA and strip allowing for complete sample handling, interpretation and data management.
