“ It feels great to make a difference in patients’ lives ”
Together with my fellow Project Leaders, I make sure that our products are of the highest standard and safe to use for patient diagnostics. To do so, I interpret regulatory requirements, design products, and perform scientific studies. This position, at the crossroads of regulatory affairs and science, is challenging at times, but always exciting. At MRC Holland there are excellent opportunities for personal growth and development, and it feels great to make a difference in patients’ lives by providing high quality genetic tests to laboratories around the world.

“ I am making a difference in the lives of individuals depending on MLPA products for insight into their health”
As a Project Leader Product Development, I am responsible for transferring MLPA products from research use only (RUO) to in vitro diagnostic (IVD) status. This involves gathering and assessing information about our products from different departments. You really get an in-depth understanding of how the products perform, whether they could be improved, and how they are used in the lab. The position is very dynamic and always challenging, allowing me to learn and grow in my career.

“ Everyone can be themselves and there is always room to improve yourself ”
I have a dual role as Senior Technician and Instrument Evaluator. As a Senior Technician, I perform laboratory tests on new batches of MLPA probemixes and make small adjustments so the mixes meet the standard quality criteria. As an Instrument Evaluator, I am responsible for checking and approving instrument calibrations. This variation is exactly what makes my job a perfect fit for me at MRC Holland. In addition, I like the company’s flexible and multicultural work environment, where everyone can be themselves and where there is always room to improve yourself.
