My client is a rapidly growing venture-capital backed company that has developed an entirely new class of diagnostic product - an instrument-free molecular test. The Company's products combine the superior performance of laboratory testing with the proven market benefits of disposable tests. The company's first product is a simple disposable test that uses a nasal swab sample to give an ultra-rapid result without the need for any instrumentation.
As a molecular test it exploits the Gold Standard chemistry of laboratory tests but is easy to use in any setting and thus will enable widespread decentralised testing for COVID-19. Sense has ambitious plans to grow from its strong foundations and become a leader in this exciting new segment of the diagnostics industry. The company is currently expanding its molecular development capabilities and is seeking an early-career Biochemist / Molecular Biologist to join the team.
