Responding to the COVID-19 Pandemic
In the face of challenging circumstances, Promega has supplied crucial viral testing reagents around the world and developed new technologies for fighting COVID-19.
Tracking Malarial Infection
Researchers in academic and government labs need the newest and most sensitive tools to test hypotheses and make new discoveries. We work to improve technologies and introduce new ones for use in both routine methods as well as more focused applications to answer complex biological questions. Read about how our bright bioluminescent reporter enzyme helps researchers track the malarial parasite during transmission and reproduction.
Isolating DNA for Ancestry Testing
With the advent of direct-to-consumer DNA testing options, many people are interested in exploring their family trees. Whether they are curious about their origins or want to find new family members, many people turn to AncestryDNA to discover who they are. The popularity of exploring an individual’s ancestry has put high demands on testing laboratories. Learn about our high-throughput solution used by these labs.
Providing Technologies for Cosmetics, Food and Water Testing
Whether ensuring food safety and ingredient authenticity or analyzing the microbial content of water, we offer testing assays for use in water and food testing facilities. The kits that are used for isolating DNA or determining if bacteria are present need to be easy to use and sensitive based laboratory requirements. See how developing a cell-based reporter assay for cosmetic testing provides alternatives to using animals.
Giving Names to Migrants Who Died in a Mediterranean Sea Shipwreck
Forensic and paternity laboratories not only deal with immense caseloads and tight deadlines but also challenging samples from which to extract DNA. We have worked with these labs for more than 30 years and support them with reliable products that start with sample preprocessing through to the final analysis. Learn how our STR analysis products are helping a task force to identify over 700 migrants killed in a shipwreck.
With passionate dedication to emotional awareness and intellectual execution, people at Promega connect with each other and with scientists around the world to co-create solutions to the most relevant problems in life science.

Investing in Technology and Patents
To sustain our company contribution to scientific exploration, Promega allocated over 11% of total revenue for research and development in and filed 79 new patent applications in the last year. Not only do we have an extensive intellectual property portfolio of over 640 granted and pending patents, but we also work with academic institutions and other entities to license and develop promising technologies.
Supporting Customers with Quality Management System Certifications
Promega is committed to quality and establishing reliable and effective processes. Sixteen of our global locations are certified to meet the requirements of ISO 9001, ISO 13485 or both, laid down by the International Organization for Standardization and monitored by a third party. We were also the first manufacturer certified to the ISO 18385 standard that minimizes the risk of human DNA contamination in products used to collect, store and analyze biological material for forensic purposes.
