Daniel tours the world inspiring people about a future with Spindiag, a future we believe will be better for both doctors and patients. As a physicist, he loves data-driven discussions about Spindiag’s impact on reducing costs for hospitals while increasing patient safety. Early in his career he became a pro at fundraising and continues to attract a remarkable, extremely supportive and growing board of investors. Together they shape Spindiag’s journey.
Dr. Gregor CzilwikChief Scientific Officer
Where biochemistry meets fluidics, Gregor and his team of molecular- and microbiologists master the crucial system integration to perfection. As a life science engineer, he gained the unique ability to not only tweak polymerase chain reactions (PCR) to the fluidics needs, but also to outperform manual PCR in terms of speed and sensitivity. The result: an ultrafast and highly sensitive PCR that keeps bringing smiles to laboratory doctors. For Gregor, cycling is more than just a sport.
Dr. Mark KellerChief Product Officer
As a life science engineer, Mark is especially fascinated by the fit of Spindiag’s technological possibilities with the market needs. He embraces user needs as if they were his own, bringing an ultra-sharp focus to Spindiag’s venture towards market. He makes no compromises when it comes to usability and functional design, because these are what it takes to build a truly point-of-care-compatible system that is fun to work with every day. Mark is not satisfied until he hears, “Wow!” from users and investors alike.
Dr. Oliver StrohmeierChief Technology Officer
Oliver – our investors’ darling for staying so true to our planning. He holds all the puzzle pieces together and stays in-the-know regarding even the smallest technical detail. As microsystem engineer, he is where all the strings come together and the challenges get sorted out. With his agile, determined and motivating project planning, he sets the pace for the entire Spindiag team every week anew. Oliver studies the IVDR and standards even as bedtime reading.
Dr. Frank SchwemmerChief Scientific Officer
As a co-inventor of seven of the 14 international patent families protecting the Spindiag platform, Frank and his team use centrifugal microfluidics to condense an entire laboratory into the hands of nurses. With creativity and attention to detail, this physicist and his team designed a disposable so small that two of them can be modularly processed simultaneously in the Spindiag player. All founders share the fascination of what centrifugal microfluidics can do, and it is Frank who keeps fascinating the entire team with new possibilities.
Dominique KosseHead of Production
Creating a cartridge that is assembled from only two fluidically relevant pieces and can be manufactured at low cost didn’t happen overnight, but resulted from Dominique’s unremitting quest for simplicity. He and his team set up patented manufacturing processes with great creativity and a sense for scalability. With Dominique as mechanical electrical engineer, there is no tinkering around. Keeping the focus on reliable and scalable processes, he ensured consistent quality from first-developed samples to larger scales. That’s key to delivering our future users a constant PCR performance they can rely on day in and day out.
