“Bio-Rad is a great place to work because the company promotes an atmosphere for personal and professional growth. It's been a great journey for ten years and counting.

As a chemist, the most important part of my job is making products that improve the lives of people with diabetes. Based on rapid and low-cost analyses, treatment can get to more patients. I've had many opportunities to grow at Bio-Rad, including learning and implementing new and better methods for manufacturing the reagents necessary for our products.”
