Fluidics Engineer — T2 Biosystems

Fluidics Engineer

T2 Biosystems, founded in 2006 by renowned scientists from MIT and Mass General Hospital, is an in vitro diagnostic company that has developed a proprietary direct detection platform that enables rapid, sensitive and precise detection of pathogens, biomarkers and other abnormalities across a variety of unpurified sample types, including whole blood, plasma, serum, sputum and urine. Our T2 Magnetic Resonance platform, or T2MR, enables rapid detection of targets at limits of detection as low as one colony forming unit per milliliter, or CFU/mL. We are using our T2 Magnetic Resonance platform, or T2MR, to develop a broad set of applications that can reduce mortality rates, improve patient outcomes and reduce the cost of healthcare by helping medical professionals make rapid and targeted treatment decisions. The first clinical diagnostic products that we intend to commercialize utilizing T2MR are the T2Dx diagnostic instrument and the T2Candida panel, which rapidly identify the five clinically relevant species of Candida, a fungal pathogen known to cause sepsis.

T2 Biosystems was named to the FierceMedicalDevices “Fierce 15” list in 2012, received the prestigious SBANE award in 2013 and received the Most Promising Company award at the Personalized Medicine World Conference in 2014.
