BiOptix Names Sales VP

Boulder-based BiOptix, which develops scientific instrumentation aimed at the biotech industry, said Thursday that it has named Ken Dickerson as Vice President of Sales at the company. The startup--which is backed by Boulder Ventures, Remeditex, and Rusnano--said that Dickerson joins from ACEA Biosciences. He also has served at Roche and GE Healthcare. BiOptix is led by Rick Whitcomb, and develops equipment which it says can be used for analyzing protein-small molecule interactions, protein-protein kinetics, antibody affinities and epitope mapping, oligosaccharide characterization, nucleic acid (DNA-DNA or DNA-RNA) hybridization and biomolecule concentration measurements.
