Welcome to DRG International Diagnostics!


DRG®, founded in 1970, is a multinational specialty medical equipment and diagnostics manufacturer and distributor, with successful representation in over 110 countries through a network of DRG® Subsidiaries and local distributors.

The German division, DRG® Instruments GmbH, founded in 1973, is located in Marburg, and specializes in the development and production of innovative ELISAs and chemiluminescent assays, both for routine and research applications, in the fields of diabetes diagnosis, endocrinology, prenatal/neonatal supervision, tumor markers, hormones, and many more.

Recently DRG® developed the world’s first nonradioactive immunoassay for the determination of Hepcidin and PLGF, as well as a complete panel of sensitive assays for the quantitative determination of saliva steroids.  In the last five years, DRG® has developed its own tumor-marker panel and a broad range of ELISAs in the field of infectious diseases, including the world’s first assay for the qualitative detection of human Fasciola hepatica/gigantica.

The DRG® serum steroid ELISAs, such as 17-OH Progesterone, DHEA, Testosterone, and other best sellers, have held a leading position in the field of gynecologic endocrinology worldwide for many years.

Our latest development is an ELISA for the determination of active Renin, a sensitive assay, which correlates perfectly to established RIAs.  In addition to our in-house developed and manufactured assays, we offer a wide range of innovative assays, both ELISAs and RIAs, in OEM format, in the field of autoimmunity, immunology, bone and mineral, and many others.

In some markets including Germany, DRG® offers the TOXI-LAB system, a thin-layer chromatography system, a perfect method for a qualitative first screening for the detection of drugs. 

In addition, DRG® is a proud distributor of Chromagar Chromogenic Medica, an innovative product line of selective microbiological testing media, permitting -- in a single step -- the isolation and differentiation of pathogenic microorganisms by colony colors.
