QIAGEN N.V. (NASDAQ:QGEN; Frankfurt Prime Standard:QIA) and Celera Corporation (NASDAQ:CRA) today announced an agreement under which QIAGEN will distribute a Celera molecular multiplex assay. The assay is the next generation version of QIAGEN’s ResPlex II assay for detection of respiratory pathogens.
