Job Opening: Management Accountant

At MicroGEM, our goal is to democratize molecular biology, enabling a broader spectrum of users to benefit from complex molecular techniques. The first step toward this goal is the simplification of sample preparation and nucleic acid extractions. Our temperature-driven, single-tube process simplifies the number of steps for traditional DNA and RNA extractions, preserving extracts with less risk of contamination, significantly reduced plastic waste, and no harsh chemicals – all in minutes, not hours.

Gene therapy, molecular biology, pharmacology, forensics, and plant/insect pathology are just a few areas where MicroGEM is helping scientists produce faster analysis and results.
