Territory Sales Manager - DACH Region

Description

Fluidic Analytics is a dynamic, early-stage company that designs, develops and manufactures products that seek to revolutionise the way proteins are characterised. Our roots stretch back to a group of scientists who were inspired by the roles that proteins play in the biological world, driven to understand more about how proteins behave and function, but frustrated by the lack of suitable tools for protein characterisation. So they decided to invent their own.

Our vision is that protein science will transform our understanding of how the biological world operates in real time. We believe that this transformation will be every bit as revolutionary as the way that advances in DNA sequencing have transformed our understanding of how the biological world operates over decades, lifetimes and generations. And we believe that Fluidic Analytics can help make this vision a reality by developing products that enable easier, faster, more convenient and more accurate protein characterisation, whether in the lab, at the bedside or in everyday life.
