MagIA diagnostics

A team bond by a shared vision

 

MagIA Team 2021

MagIA diagnostics has created over 15 jobs since 2017. We are proud to contribute to offer these opportunities in our region. As fast growing company, we constantly recruit new collaborators. You can consult our open job positions here or send us your job application via mail.

The recent achievements would not have been possible without the dedicated and diverse team we have built. We believe that keeping a participative, stimulating and friendly work environment is crucial and make sure each collaborator progress with the project.

The innovative diagnostic technology developed by MagIA is the result of 15 years of collaboration between several research institutes from Grenoble. The patented MagIA innovation, which explores the application to biotechnology of magnetic interactions at the submillimeter scale, has been the subject of several theses which have explored its application to different biological parameters, demonstrated its clinical potential and its industrializable nature.

The team was mentored by a local incubator, the SATT Linksium Grenoble. During this time, the MagIA technology was improved with the help of medical doctors, diagnostic players and pharmaceutical companies in order to offer a real solution to our future customer. In 2017, after two years of incubation, the legal entity MagIA diagnostics was born.
