QIAGEN has  regularly reported  adjusted results  to give  additional
insight into its financial performance as well as considered  results
on a constant currencies basis. Adjusted results should be considered
in addition  to  the reported  results  prepared in  accordance  with
generally  accepted  accounting   principles,  but   should  not   be
considered as a substitute. The Company believes certain items should
be excluded from adjusted results when they are either outside of our
ongoing core  operations or  can vary  significantly from  period  to
period, which affects the comparability of results with the Company's
competitors and our  own prior  periods. Costs  and charges  excluded
from   adjusted    results   include    business   integration    and
restructuring-related   costs   as   well   as    acquisition-related
amortization,  and  equity  based  compensation  in  accordance  with
Statement of Financial Accounting  Standards No. 123 (Revised)  (SFAS
123R).

"2008 was a  very successful  year for  QIAGEN in  which we  achieved
significant revenue growth, exceeding  our expectations. We  executed
on our strategy and significantly increased our technology and market
leadership in all  our target customer  segments", said Peer  Schatz,
QIAGEN's Chief Executive Officer. "The  launches of more than 80  new
products in 2008 contributed  5% to 2008 net  sales growth and are  a
testament to  QIAGEN's focus  on differentiating  by innovation.  New
products included innovative sample and assay technologies

  * For research in the application areas including epigenetics, gene
    expression, micro RNA, genotyping, RNAi;
  * For use in all customer segments, such as academia,
    pharmaceutical R&D, applied testing and molecular diagnostics;
    and
  * In the form of consumables and related instrumentation, such as
    the QIAsymphony SP - the first module of a novel modular
    processing platform integrating entire workflows in molecular
    processing - a new platform launch that we are very pleased with.

Our full pipeline  of new  products and a  strong strategic  position
build a solid basis for our success in 2009 and beyond."

 "We expect a number  of exciting new  market introductions in  2009.
These include a further expansion of our sample and assay  technology
portfolio for research in  applied testing and molecular  diagnostics
with the clear  goal of adding  even more regulated  products to  our
portfolio." Mr. Schatz  added. "Our pipeline  of automated  solutions
for our sample  and assay  technologies is  exceptionally strong.  In
January we already launched or announced several new products:

  * EZ1 Advanced XL, a fully automated sample technology system which
    can process and purify target analytes from up to 14 samples
    running on pre-programmed protocols and pre-filled cartridges;
  * QIAgility, a highly versatile assay set-up unit for assay
    technologies such as PCR;
  * Rotor-Gene Q, QIAGEN's new and technology leading real-time PCR
    cycler; and
  * The next module of QIAsymphony, QIAsymphony AS, a fully
    integrated assay set-up unit for the QIAsymphony platform which
    takes this platform one significant step closer towards being a
    fully integrated, random access and continuous load molecular
    testing solution."

"Our   acquisition   strategy   remains   focused,   consistent   and
value-creating, providing complementary technologies, new  commercial
capabilities  and/or  geographic  reach.  For  example,  we   further
strengthened our  market and  technology leadership  by adding  assay
technology set-up instrumentation  and real-time  PCR assay  analysis
technology  to   QIAGEN's   instrumentation  platform   through   the
acquisition of  Corbett in  July 2008.  With the  acquisition of  the
BioSystems business  from  Biotage  in October  2008,  we  added  the
Pyrosequencing  technology,  a   fundamental  assay  technology   for
high-resolution  sequence  detection   and  quantification  of   gene
variations which  we  believe will  play  a very  important  role  in
epigenetics as well as multiplex genetic and pathogen detection.  Our
molecular 'sample  to result'  solutions for  customers in  molecular
diagnostics, applied testing, pharma  and academic research, now  for
the first time span from sample to result across many different forms
of assay  detection  technologies -  from  qualitative/endpoint  PCR,
multiplex technologies and capillary electrophoresis to  quantitative
and high resolution, sequence-based analysis and cover a broad  range
of throughput needs."

"2008 was a very successful year for QIAGEN - we achieved our  strong
financial results while experiencing significant strategic  momentum.
I would  like to  thank  our employees  around  the world  for  their
contributions to our performance and their strong commitment to build
the basis for a long-term success for QIAGEN."

"QIAGEN experienced an exciting fourth quarter and fiscal year  2008.
Reported revenues  for the  fourth quarter  and for  the fiscal  year
exceeded our expectations. We experienced a strong adjusted operating
margin increase to 28% from 25% in fiscal year 2007 which corresponds
to a growth  rate of 54%  year over year  reflecting achievements  of
cost synergies  following the  acquisition  of Digene,"  said  Roland
Sackers, QIAGEN's Chief Financial Officer.

"Revenue growth for  fiscal year  2008 was 37%  and was  fueled by  a
strong organic  growth  of  13%  and  a  positive  contribution  from
acquisitions  of  22%   at  constant   currencies,"  Roland   Sackers
continued. "Our sample and assay portfolio grew 36% (34% at  constant
exchange rates) driven by strong growth  of sales of our products  to
customers in molecular diagnostics. QIAGEN's instrumentation business
recorded a very strong growth rate  of 51% (52% at constant  exchange
rates)  mainly  based  on  the  new  instruments  (QIAsymphonySP  and
QIAxcel) as well as a strong demand for the Rotor-Gene real-time  PCR
cycler and the CAS instrument following the Corbett acquisition.  Net
sales in the  Americas in  fiscal year  2008 represented  50% of  our
overall business and  recorded a  growth rate of  49% while  European
sales, which represent 37% of our  revenues, showed a growth rate  of
21% (17%  at constant  exchange rates).  Net sales  in Asia  remained
strong, showing  a  growth rate  of  24% (16%  at  constant  exchange
rates)."


Fiscal Year 2009 Guidance

Based on  foreign currency  exchange rates  as of  January 31,  2009,
QIAGEN expects revenues  between $920  and $970 million  in 2009  and
adjusted diluted earnings  per share between  $0.88 and $0.94.  Under
constant exchange rates consideration, revenue expectations for  2009
would be between $990 and $1,040  million with a growth rate  between
11% and  16% when  compared  to 2008  and expectations  for  adjusted
diluted  earnings  per  share  would  be  between  $0.92  and   $0.98
respectively.

Detailed information on the Company's business, financial performance
and expectations will be presented  in the Company's conference  call
on February 10,  2009 at  9:30am ET.  The corresponding  presentation
slides will be  available for  download on the  Company's website  at
www.qiagen.com/goto/ConferenceCall. A webcast of the conference  call
will     be     available     on     the     same     website      at

QIAGEN - Sample and Assay Technologies Highlights:

* QIAGEN acquired Corbett Life Science Pty. Ltd., best known for the
  world's first rotary real-time PCR cycler system - the
  Rotor-Gene(TM) - a system used to detect and measure real-time
  polymerase chain reaction (PCR) reactions. The Corbett Rotor-Gene
  real-time PCR cycler is an excellent complement to QIAGEN's
  portfolio of current and future molecular testing solutions,
  including its modular processing platform QIAsymphony.

* QIAGEN acquired the BioSystems business from Biotage AB. The
  BioSystems unit of Biotage is best known for having pioneered
  Pyrosequencing®, which has become a fundamental technology in
  next-generation sequencing. In addition, in its widely used
  standard format (PyroMark systems and consumables) this technology
  provides the opportunity to read DNA-sequences up to 100 base pairs
  in real time, high-speed and with very low costs. The PyroMark
  solutions offer significant value for applications including
  Epigenetics in research and molecular diagnostics as well as in
  Multiplex analyses in genetic and pathogen detection.

* QIAGEN introduced the first molecular diagnostic test based on
  Pyrosequencing for the detection of mutations in the K-ras gene
  which is associated with the development of colon cancer. QIAGEN
  expects to launch further versions of this test in Europe
  (CE-marked) and in the U.S. very shortly.

* QIAGEN received additional 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and
  Drug Administration (FDA) for PreAnalytiX PAXgene(TM) Blood RNA
  System for use on QIAGENs QIAcube instrument. The PAXgene Blood RNA
  system, cleared by the FDA for manual use already in May 2005, is
  the first of its class for the collection, storage, and transport
  of blood and stabilization of intracellular RNA in a closed tube
  and subsequent isolation and purification of intracellular RNA from
  whole blood for Reverse Transcription-Polymerase Chain Reaction
  (RT-PCR) used in clinical and molecular diagnostic testing.

* The European Union launched a new research project led by QIAGEN
  targeting to expand the potential and utility of in-vitro
  diagnostics through the creation of new standards for the
  collection, handling and processing of blood, tissue, tumor and
  other sample materials. The SPIDIA project ("Standardisation and
  improvement of generic Pre-analytical tools and procedures for
  In-vitro DIAgnostics"), consisting of 16 companies and research
  institutions from 11 countries, is scheduled to run for four years
  and has a total budget of over 13 million Euros.

* In November 2008 the Mexican Public Health Agency (Secretaria de
  Salud or SSA) announced the launch of the first phase of a program
  that will offer testing for human papillomavirus (HPV). The cost of
  the testing will be covered by the agency. In the first phase of
  the screening program, more than 200,000 women were being offered
  the papillomavirus test along with the traditional Pap smear. In
  2009, the pilot program will be expanded to include another 600,000
  women in the 20 states with the highest death rate from cervical
  cancer. It is estimated that 6 million women a year will be
  eligible for HPV testing through the Mexican public health system
  once the screening program is national.
