Field Application Scientist


Spear Bio is a young, well-funded start up company based in Woburn, Massachusetts. At Spear Bio Inc., we are passionate about empowering patients, testing labs, and clinicians to expand wellness testing and clinical diagnostics. Wellness self-testing and telemedicine-based diagnostics are quickly growing trends. Both increasingly rely on the ability to quantify miniscule amounts of protein biomarkers from at-home collected samples. Platform technologies that enable ultrasensitive detection from small sample volumes and fit into existing workflows for sample collection, processing, and detection, are needed to enable these highly-valued trends.

Our team is growing quickly as we develop new products and workflows to enable greater access to ultrasensitive protein diagnostics.
