Axion BioSystems Description

Axion BioSystems, an early stage company located in Atlanta,GA,has developed technology to non-invasively track real-time cell activity. Axion initially launched the industry’s first high-throughput microelectrode array (MEA) system. MEAs are used for the invitroinvestigation of networks of electrically active cells (e.g. neurons, cardiac cells, muscle cells etc.) for screening compounds, chemicals, toxins etc. When combined with modern stem cell culture technologies, Axion’s ME Aplatforms allows scientists to model human heart-beats and brain activity in a dish. Recently, we have expanded on this technology to introduce an impedance-based assay platform used to track cell growth and death with specific applications in immuno-oncology and immuno-therapies. 

We are looking for an energetic person comfortable with science and skilled at selling. As a member of the US field team based at Axion in Atlanta, GA, applicants should also be comfortable taking on additional roles within a fast-paced, performance-driven environment.
