Establishing and maintaining an understanding of the global life sciences markets, you will formulate marketing strategies for product positioning, market penetration and customer satisfaction.
 
A key part of your role will be to develop a pipeline of products which address the need for testing for the product groups in the industrial microbiology and clinical workflow arenas.
