Capitainer has announced that Mikael Ström (PhD) has been appointed as Business Development Manager.
He joins the team, bringing valuable large scale hospital laboratory expertise, as Capitainer continues to add new applications for their proprietary qDBS dried blood sampling technology, states the company in a press release.
Prior to joining Capitainer, Mikael Ström managed the molecular diagnostics unit within Clinical Microbiology, at Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm. Last year, due to Covid-19, he led the expansion of the unit, increasing their capacity 10-fold and doubled the head count. Before that, he worked at Nordic Biosite, representing US- European- and Asia-based manufacturers of validated products for research and diagnostics where he aquired experience both within quality assurance and sales.
“I am delighted to join Capitainer at this exciting time when home sampling is set to grow in importance. With Capitainer products, home sampling will be a great complement to standard clinical diagnostics and there are a number of applications where home sampling will bring true benefits for easy and equal access to healthcare,” says Mikael Ström.
