This is an opportunity to join an exciting Life Science startup, contribute to the continued development of its communication platform and build brand awareness for the company and its products.

Listed on Nasdaq First North (SENZA) SenzaGen is headquartered in Lund, Sweden with a subsidiary in Davis, California, USA. With its technology platform GARD, SenzaGen makes it possible to replace animal testing with in vitro assays based on genomics to determine if the chemicals we come in contact with in our everyday lives: cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, foods and dyes are allergenic. The company’s proprietary assays are the most reliable in the market and provide more information than traditional evaluation methods. SenzaGen markets, sells and performs the in vitro GARD sensitization test through its own laboratory and through licensed CROs.  Within the coming years, SenzaGen will expand geographically, associate more contract laboratories and distribution partners, and plans to launch new tests.
