First Light Biosciences is an exciting and rapidly growing company based in Chelmsford Massachusetts. First Light is combating disturbing trends in hospital acquired infections and antibiotic resistance, by commercializing the only diagnostic platform that can provide rapid, ultrasensitive determination of the appropriate antibiotic therapy for all types of hospital infections in all sample types. The company offers strong growth potential and a stimulating environment with a culture of excellence in science, engineering, and business.
According to CDC, 70,000 patients die from hospital infections each year in the US, twice the number that die in car accidents. Many of these infections are very difficult to treat because they have become resistant to multiple antibiotics. First Light Biosciences is developing a breakthrough automated In-Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) platform for rapid, sensitive, automated, and cost-effective detection of pathogens that cause infections, and for rapidly determining the right antibiotic for treatment of these life-threatening infections.
