Quality Management System Specialist

Personalized, cell-based therapy is emerging as a paradigm-shifting strategy in healthcare. To harness the potential of cutting-edge cellular engineering, stringent process controls must be put into place that monitor and measure critical parameters of the cell product at every step, from patient sample acquisition to drug product release. In essence, the process is the product.


The Accellix system offers a streamlined workflow solution that couples automated sample preparation within a single-use microfluidic cartridge, customized ambient-stable reagents, high sensitivity fluorescent event detection, and assay-specific auto analysis. The combination results in robust multiparametric analysis with ‘mix and read’ simplicity, enabling standardized process controls for engineered T-cells and other cell therapy products.
