Director - Biomedical Engineering (8-9 yrs)

Overseas/International/Tokyo/Japan Job Code: 22835

Director of Bio-Medical Engineering


Industry : Pharmaceuticals/Biotechnology/Clinical Research

Location : Tokyo, Japan

Client Details :

- Client is a scientific instrumentation company that designs & manufactures tools for molecular analysis. At Client, we- re creating a whole new way of sensing and understanding molecular information. Ahead of the technology curve, both in terms of software, algorithms and hardware, we have applied some of the best minds in the field to break new ground in quantitative molecular analysis.

- We have created the industry's smallest, smartest, cloud-connected, plug-and-play molecular cameras that quantitatively analyze chemical processes in real time with unprecedented detail.

- Engineered in Tokyo and Silicon Valley (US & India), our disruptive solutions will revolutionize the way the world senses, collects, processes and interprets molecular data.

- We have a very clear mission, to develop automated, AI-based, miniaturized platforms for mass spectrometry and optical spectroscopy. But that sort of complex molecular analysis has a wide range of potential industry applications, making it difficult to prioritize efforts. The startup company has already commercialized the first quantitative, real-time miniaturized mass spectrometers for semiconductor and pharmaceutical industry gas detection. 


- Its first product is geared toward monitoring pharmaceutical lyophilization, which is a freeze-drying process commonly used by the pharmaceutical industry for product stabilization, for contamination, leaks or other problems. Now, with a new cash infusion in the form of a $33 million series C round, it's turning to focus on point-of-care diagnostics.
