Doug Bryant - President and CEO



Thanks everybody for joining us here and it is my pleasure as we start the afternoon session on day 1 here to introduce Quidel, I am really glad – and the guests who have joined us is Doug Bryant to give us an overview of the company presentation and then we will move over to the Canyon Room after this for the breakout.

Dough Bryant

Good afternoon. I hope with such a huge audience that I don’t get a little nervous. I thought it was fine. I’ll be making forward-looking statements, of course.

The company has been around actually quite sometime now. We are based in San Diego and have been around since 1979. Introduced our first commercial product in the diagnostics space in 1984 that was actually a pregnancy test that became the basis for many manufacturers’ products that were out there. In other words, we were an OEM manufacturer originally and then we took our own product into the market. Shortly thereafter developed a Strep A test. And then for years we are known as a Rapid point-of-care diagnostic company that supplies easy to use tests, that were performed in physicians’ offices primarily, but also in a hospital lab segment.

In 1989 we began developing products in other areas that were in the life science research tools space mainly, bone health markers and complement pathway markers that are supplied to pharmaceutical companies and other folks that are doing research. In 1999 through collaboration with GlaxoSmithKline we developed the first Flu A/B product, which has had a couple of improvements over the years. And then, sometime after that we actually went public.
