Position: Manufacturing Associate

About us:  We are a venture-backed commercial stage startup developing Multiplexed Ion Beam Imaging (MIBI), a Stanford University technology for measuring protein expression in tissue samples. MIBI uses mass spectrometry in combination with antibodies labeled with rare earth elements to simultaneously image dozens of proteins on a single tissue section. Compared to existing tissue-based imaging approaches, MIBI offers a huge increase in simultaneous targets, as well as high resolution, 3D imaging, and incredible sensitivity. From a scientific point of view, MIBI is exciting because it allows for previously incomprehensible complex biological interactions to be visualized and understood. Researchers and clinicians are using MIBI to unravel the mysteries of diseases like cancer, neurodegeneration, and autoimmunity. Read more here:
