Our passion began to burn in 1990, in the corner of an Idaho potato equipment facility. We started out as Idaho Technology, Inc., developing products with a firm commitment to eliminate disease through smart thinking and product innovation. That spark quickly became an inferno as we introduced a number of “firsts” to the molecular diagnostics and biosurveillance industries. In 2012, we changed our name to BioFire Diagnostics, Inc. to reflect more accurately our outward passion and commitment.Specialist in Clinical Diagnostics, Infectious Diseases, Multiplex PCR, Real-time PCR Instruments and Reagents, DNA/RNA Sample Purification Kits, BioSurveillance, DNA Amplification Instruments, Hi-Res Melting Instruments and Kits.
