The PCR lab techs are placing the samples into the liquid handling robot and removing the caps. They will remove the samples at the end of the run and recap them and place into storage. They will also be moving 96 well plates from the liquid handler to the PCR platform and remove them for destruction once the PCR process is finished. There are few other minor tasks but this is the main activity. They need a bachelors degree and some basic wet lab experience. Familiarity with lab automation is a plus.
Laboratory technicians assist with the receiving, labeling, testing and analyzing of samples (blood, tissue, saliva, etc.) in a sterile environment. They assist in the design and execution of laboratory testing according standard procedures, as well as maintain accurate computer records of the process and results. They will be working with human samples that are potentially pathogenic and must follow all safety guidelines
PCR Team specific:
1. Minimum of 3 years post graduate lab experience
2. Industry experience preferred
3. Experience with single and multi-channel pipetting small volumes
4. Experience pipetting into 384 well plates a plus
5. Experience with qPCR, sequencing, and/or microarrays
6. Ability to perform high-complexity testing
7. Bachelor degree minimum - open to masters and phD in sciences
Infinity Biologix (IBX) is a spin-out of the RUCDR Infinite Biologics lab out of Rutgers University- New Brunswick. IBX has developed a saliva test for COVID-19 which is the first specimen collection approach that utilizes saliva as the primary test biomaterial for COVID-19. The saliva collection method can be performed at home and allows for broader population testing than the method of nose and throat swabs. The state of Minnesota has contracted with IBX to operate a satellite lab with support from the New Jersey location to process 30,000 samples/day.
