Production and Quality Control Engineer

Navinci (formerly Olink Bioscience) has a proud history of inventing analytic technologies for nucleic acids and proteins. We are dedicated to serve science with innovative ways for in situ protein analysis. Based on our proprietary proximity ligation technique, we enable scientists to accurately study protein interactions and modifications in tissues and cells. Our goal is to combine the latest technological advances and breakthroughs into kits and services for basic science, translational medicine, and preclinical research applications to accelerate the development of new diagnostic tools and treatments.
