Ian C Skovsted - Scientist and Product Developer
”As an employee of SSI Diagnostica, I was involved in developing the product ImmuView®, which we launched a couple of years ago and which is now sold worldwide. The product may greatly influence the ability of medical practitioners to diagnose pneumonia in their patients, and is therefore also very important for the health and wellbeing of the patients. Apart from researching and developing new products, I am often used as external sparring partner by medical practitioners, researchers, our manufacturing department and our commercial team. This means that my work days are extremely varied, and no one is like another, which I enjoy tremendously.
At SSI Diagnostica, we all know each other and employ an open-door policy – to me, we are family and not just a work place. I also appreciate the pace of the company. Our timeframes for launching new products are relatively short and so we are always working on something new and exciting. In R&D, we focus on developing the products, which will generate SSI Diagnostica’s future income. Our aim is for SSI Diagnostica to be the leading micro-biomedical company in the Nordic region, and in order to achieve that R&D must do well, which I find a great motivator."
