Owlstone Medical has a vacancy for a Firmware Engineer focusing on developing embedded code to drive our mobile chemical detection systems. Deployed in a range of chemical protection applications, Owlstone detectors are based on a proprietary, micron-scale ion-filtering technology. The ion filters are rapidly and precisely tunable, enabling a new level of detection and identification performance for hand-held, portable, and fixed-site systems for the defence, security and first-responder markets. Advanced control software and data processing algorithms provide re-configurable alarm capability, allowing systems to keep pace with changing chemical threats without hardware modification.
Owlstone Medical has developed a breathalyzer for disease.
Every time you breathe out there are hundreds of chemicals on your breath - some are tell-tale markers of disease that our microchip chemical sensor technology is able to detect.
Our vision is to change the way we currently diagnose and monitor serious disease; we aim to become the global leader in the non-invasive detection of cancer, infectious disease and inflammatory disease. The key is detecting diseases earlier, when treatments are more effective, where more lives can be saved. There is no better example than cancer, where if detected early the chances of survival can be as good at 95% but at late stage drop to about 5% - unfortunately there are still far too many people detected at late stage.
The Owlstone group also commercialises a range of highly innovative products based on its proprietary FAIMS chemical sensing technology in other markets including Scientific, Industrial Process Control, Military and Homeland Defence.
