About Us

DuPont Molecular Diagnostics, located in Wilmington, Delaware, provides innovative, science-based microbial detection and monitoring products that can reduce the impact of pathogens and other unwelcome organisms in food, pharmaceutical, and personal care industries.

These practical solutions utilize speed and accuracy to deliver measurable business value for customers worldwide. The diagnostic technology from DuPont goes further to protect customers' brands, time-to-market and future success. That is the power of science in the real world--measurable and accurate.

These products were orignally available through Qualicon, a small stand-alone business within DuPont. In 2012, DuPont organized three separate food businesses -- Qualicon, Danisco and Solae -- into a single, powerful Nutrition & Health unit that is dedicated to delivering a wide range of sustainable, bio-based ingredients and advanced molecular diagnostics to provide safer, healthier and more nutritious food.


Leadership is in the genes

Leadership is not something that can be manufactured. For over 200 years, DuPont has been the leader in technological solutions with powerful business value. DuPont Molecular Diagnostics is part of that strong tradition and has grown--in technology, understanding and size--to become a global leader in DNA-based diagnostic solutions. We support current technology and customers while developing new innovations and improving existing technology from a solid foundation of DuPont history. This ensures customers enjoy measurable business benefits today and well into the future.


Measuring the future

As technology evolves and the needs of industry change, DuPont will continue to develop, improve and revolutionize diagnostics to the fullest extent. By building on current practices and products, drawing from the 200-year heritage of research and development, and utilizing global resources, DuPont will remain a worldwide leader in health and safety solutions.

From its beginnings with the smallest building blocks of life--DNA and genetic-based diagnostics--DuPont continues to pursue new technologies and innovative products for industry.
