Summit Biolabs, located in Aurora, Colorado is harnessing the power of saliva-based diagnostics for early detection of head and neck cancer. As a result of disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the company pivoted quickly to develop a saliva-based rapid test for detection of the virus. This patent-protected, extraction-free test has proven to be highly accurate, and comparable to nasal swabs in clinical trials. We’ve been asked by a Colorado philanthropic organization to set up a CLIA-certified lab for production testing to enable students to safety return to in-person learning.

This is a unique opportunity to make an immediate impact on COVID-19 testing. If this sounds intriguing – let’s talk!

Establishing a new CLIA-certified clinical laboratory for high-volume COVID-19 testing and overseeing the daily operations – this is exciting stuff!
Developing procedures to ensure safety, security, quality, and accuracy of results – consulting with medical and scientific directors to overcome any issues
Managing the laboratory staff including hiring, onboarding, scheduling, and coaching technologists
