Senior Director of Business Development in Flow Cytometry

Curiox Biosystems is an innovative bioinstrumentation company based in Singapore with a range of patent-granted and pending technologies.  The company is dedicated to accelerating the progress of life science research, drug discovery and diagnostics through miniaturization and simplification of biological assays.  The company offers a series of products based on our DropArray™ technology, a Droplet-based plate platform enabling a range of biological assays.

Curiox has recently developed a system of DA-Cell™ washer and plate for washing cells being stained for analysis by flow cytometers.  Existing methods use centrifugation to wash cells during the staining process.  Centrifugation is a variable, time consuming and inefficient process which could leave to cell damaging effects.  DA-Cell uses a gentle laminar flow instead of centrifugation in washing cells.  We anticipate that DA-Cell washer and plate will have a fast and widespread adoption by many flow users thanks to examples of benefits below:

  • Washing completed within 2 minutes
  • Retention of up to 95% cells
  • Increased viability of cells without stress from centrifuge
  • Consistent and reproducible data independent of an operator
  • Easy and clear gating and segregation of cell populations

We are currently seeking a candidate for Senior Director of Business Development in Flow Cytometry to be based in either Greater Boston or SF Bay area. The candidate may work remotely. The candidate is expected to spearhead the adoption of DA-Cell products in a wide range of cellular analysis markets through various configurations.
