HTG Molecular Diagnostics ( is a molecular diagnostics company based in Tucson, AZ. HTG Molecular was founded as a life sciences company in 1997 - the mission was to develop a universal molecular biology-based platform that would improve the pharmaceutical drug discovery process. This novel technology is known as qNPA. Since that time, HTG Molecular has expanded the utility of the qNPA technology into the fields of gene expression profiling, translational medicine and clinical research. Applications include the measurement of mRNA and miRNA in a variety of sample types, especially in formalin-fixed, paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissue.

HTG Molecular has a large menu of array components and is continuously adding more to support CLIA labs in custom array assays. HTG Molecular is developing proprietary gene expression assays for a variety of tissue types and disease states. The company is leveraging its proprietary and patented qNPA technology that is highly advantaged in working with FFPE and other biological specimens for mRNA and miRNA expression.
