Fluid-Screen, Inc. is a startup pursuing a mission to provide safer living for millions of people globally, while building a significant, valuable company. They are commercializing a technology developed at Yale University that can rapidly detect bacterial contamination to help prevent infectious disease outbreaks and save lives in a wide variety of settings.
Fluid Screen’s lab-on-a-chip system detects bacteria in water, blood and urine with sensitivity of single bacterium in just 30 minutes, compared to a day or more for alternative technologies. The patented technology and the team have been recognized with the Grand Prize in the Create the Future NASA Design contest (#1 out of 900 entrants worldwide), a Gold Prize in Mass Challenge (top 1% of contenders), and more than ten other awards, the research has been published in Nature.
Currently, they are seeking an experienced, entrepreneurial, diligent, creative microbiologist to join our team, to lead this validation effort and then to help drive the technology forward toward commercial application. The company is moving into brand new Cambridge lab space (LabCentral), providing access to state-of-the art equipment and test processes. More information can be found: http://www.fluid-screen.com/
