Description

Cytomos Limited is an early stage company which develops and manufactures cell analysis instruments using a proven and patented cell sensing technique. Cytomos instruments are targeted at biomedical research and ultimately in-vitro diagnostics applications. We have recently launched our first demonstrator instrument and are now seeking an Application Scientist to support the on-site testing of that instrument in lead user laboratories.
