About Us


Hain Lifescience is the manufacturer and distributor of molecular diagnostic systems and instruments. The focus of the company today is the independent development, production and distribution of modern diagnostic test systems and lab equipment. With these products definite statements can be made, for example about the presence of hereditary diseases. Other test systems are used to identify bacteria which cause diseases such as tuberculosis, MRSA or other serious infections. The technology is based on our HyBeacon, DNASTRIP and GenoQuick®. The detection systems for mycobacteria and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) offer a solution for major community health problems and are therefore in the focus of international interest.

The Technology
The innovative test systems enable to obtain definitive molecular-biological proof of pathogens and their resistances. While with the human genetics product line, genetic predispositions for various diseases are tested. Test systems on three different modern technology platforms are available for these diagnostic investigations:

The HyBeacon technology is an innovative technology with fluorescence labeled probes. The combination of specific amplification and subsequent detection in the same device guarantees high diagnostic reliability.

The DNA•STRIP technology is based on the principle of reverse hybridization. High diagnostic reliability is assured by the combination of a specific amplification with subsequent hybridization.

The GenoQuick® technology, a new generation of direct tests is available. These combine a high degree of diagnostic reliability with significant time savings.
