Scientist, Mass Spectrometry

Intabio, Inc. is a Series A funded, early stage company developing analytical solutions to transform biotherapeutic development and manufacturing with products that provide early product quality characterization and profound efficiency gains across all stages of biopharmaceutical development and manufacturing. Intabio's first product, the Blaze system, will provide rapid detection and identification of subtle protein modifications - modifications that can undermine the stability and efficacy of biotherapeutic drugs such as monoclonal antibodies and recombinant proteins. Our innovative core technology is the first to utilize microchip functionality to integrate (1) separation of protein isoforms by capillary isoelectric focusing (cIEF), (2) 280-nm imaging of protein isoforms for quantitation, and (3) electrospray ionization for delivery of the separated isoforms to an adjacent mass spectrometer.

Intabio, Inc. has an opening for a Scientist, Mass Spectrometry in Newark, CA. This individual will bring their industry experience in developing and running analytical assays for mAbs, developing electrospray protocols and will be a key contributor to the development of Intabio’s cIEF-MS integrated assay and instrument system. This position reports to the CTO.
