News Dec 10, 2008
DxS has announced the expansion of its Product Development Team in response to a marked rise in demand for its cancer diagnostics kits in 2008.
The Company has significantly increased its number of Research and Development staff in the final quarter of the year from four at the start of the year to eight, and plans to recruit a further five more Product Development Scientists in the next month.
The expansion of the Product Development team builds on DxS’ continued growth in 2008 which has so far seen DxS increase manufacturing capacity and acquire new premises in response to the increase in demand for its diagnostic and research mutation test kits.
David Whitcombe, Chief Scientific Officer at DxS said, “The quality and range of our products is centrally based upon the innovation and experience of our Development Team. Our scientists are dedicated to ensuring that we remain the market leaders in our field and lead the way in developing novel assays for the future”.
