Jaspreet joins the sales team

Meet Jaspreet Sahota (Jas) our new Sales Executive.

Previous experience

“I have always been intrigued by biology.  During my undergraduate degree in medical genetics at Leicester University I was drawn into the appeal of Microbiology, most importantly how such small things can cause us great harm but equally provide significant benefits. I continued along this path completing both a Masters degree in infection and immunity, followed by a PhD in the application of bacteriophage technology within the medical and food industries.

After completing my studies I wanted to increase my understanding and experience of science in a commercial environment. This led me to customer facing roles at The Binding Site, an in vitro diagnostic company specialising in immunoassays, as a technical specialist. Later I worked at Latis Scientific, a water testing company as an application specialist. I have also worked as a senior microbiologist at Cargill Meats Europe, in their micro and vet labs, performing numerous bacteriological culture plate identifications on poultry and environmental samples.”

Jaspreet’s role at Solus

“The skills I have acquired from my past roles have prepared me for this challenging and exciting role of Sales Executive at Solus Scientific. I will utilise my past experience, technical knowledge and passion for the food microbiological testing industry. I hope to foster and develop relationships with my customers and continue to provide the level of support they have come to expect from Solus Scientific.”

Perfect timing

Jas joins Solus at an exciting time. We have recently launched Solus One Listeria a highly efficient assay for the next day detection of Listeria spp. in environmental samples. Hot on the heels of this is the imminent launch of Solus One Salmonella for the next day detection of Salmonella in food and environmental samples. We wish Jas every success in his new role at this very important time.
