Since 1983, PROGEN has been an established manufacturer and supplier of premium antibodies, in vitro diagnostics, and reagents for the global life science research community. While PROGEN’s antibodies are among the most published antibodies in biomedical and cell biology literature, its ELISA kits aim at niche markets in microbiology, infectious diseases and immunology. Building on its extensive core-competency and experience in immunochemistry, the company has expanded its product and service portfolio in recent years to include recombinant antibody engineering, antibody phage display technology, density gradient media, and AAV test kits for gene therapy research. At PROGEN you can enjoy the advantages of a small company, such as open communication, low hierarchies, strong team spirit, and flexible working models. We are looking forward to expand our team in Heidelberg with a motivated, creative new colleague who shares our passion for research!
