HistoWiz is a biotechnology company located in SUNY Downstate Incubator that automates histology for biomedical researchers in academia and industry. Our intelligent tissue platform facilitates the collaboration between scientists and clinicians, and enable discovery by allowing search and comparison of cancer histopathology data across different laboratories and hospitals around the world. Our mission is to fight cancer cooperatively instead of individually.
We are looking for an IHC Technologist to join our growing team. Under the general direction and supervision of the IHC Manager, the IHC Technologist will effectively apply a working knowledge and skill of designated IHC Technologist related duties and tasks, in support of the Department as a whole, to complete the daily assigned IHC workload.
Must possess a thorough working knowledge of the IHC staining procedures, Histochemical staining procedure and routine Histology procedures sufficient to accomplish the following:
Operation of automated IHC stainer and cover slipper(s)
Troubleshoot quality issues
Create and/or monitor essential documents through the daily operation
Exchange instrument specific reagents at designated intervals
Timely completion of instrument specific QC documentation when applicable
Proper handling and disposal of chemical waste
Immediate notification to supervisory personnel of malfunctioning instrumentation
QC/QA of all antibodies
Immediate notification of existing and/or potential problems to the proper authority
Maintain accurate work records (i.e., Maintenance Logs, Temperature Logs, etc.)
Evaluate new equipment and procedures
Review slides for overall quality of preparation such as staining intensity, proper cover slipping and stain artifacts
Bachelors degree in science
2+ years of experience in QIHC
NY State license – Laboratory Technologist
Knowledge of IHC – Special Stains
Internal Number: 04092018
Our mission is to fight cancer cooperatively instead of individually by connecting scientists, clinicians and patients for online collaboration.
Previously, there was no large annotated Whole Slide Imaging (WSI) repository for histopathology data, making collaboration difficult and bioinformatics-driven discovery impossible. HistoWiz initiated the effort to break down data silos by digitizing histology slides from different academic institutes and pharmas in 2013.
Unlike histology core facilities and CROs, we guarantee a 3 day turnaround time from wet tissue submission to digital slides on a cloud database. PathologyMap™ is currently the largest online preclinical pathology database allowing online viewing, tagging, collaboration, search, comparison and analysis of histopathology data across different laboratories and hospitals around the world.
HistoWiz has developed a scalable and cost-effective IT infrastructure to archive and manage multi-terabyte databases. Unlike current technologies that process the slides into smaller image tiles as a user zooms in and requires the download of additional software or gigabyte-sized files, our novel web viewer allows instant global access of glass slides on any computer or mobile device like a “virtual microscope.”
