Bioline Reagents is a primary manufacturer and developer of a wide range of specialised molecular biology products for the life science industry and research markets. It manufactures reagents including ultra-pure nucleotides, DNA polymerases and mixes, DNA markers, competent cells, products for RNA analysis and other general reagents for molecular biology.


Bioline is one of the few primary manufacturers of ultra-pure nucleotides in the world, with 99.9% purity by HPLC analysis.


Bioline was first established in London, UK, in 1992, supplying enzymes for the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technology. Bioline offered a highly purified Thermophilus aquaticus (Taq DNA polymerase) as its first manufactured product and gradually expanded its range. Bioline now offers over 300 kits and reagents for the life sciences and molecular biology, primarily focuses on the development and manufacture of reagents for PCR.

In July 2010, the company became a wholly owned subsidiary of Meridian Bioscience Inc. (NASDAQ: VIVO).
