IntraMed Diagnostics Announces Two Senior-Level Additions
Date:5/15/2013

Boulder, Colo. (PRWEB) May 15, 2013

IntraMed Diagnostics, LLC, a subsidiary of Express Diagnostics Int’l (EDI), is pleased to welcome Dean Kingston as director of engineering and manufacturing and Barry Vant-Hull, Ph.D., as senior software engineer.

Kingston to serve as director of engineering and manufacturing

Kingston previously served as engineering manager and senior product development engineer for Eveia Medical, Inc. While with Eveia Medical, he led the design, research, and development of the ArcFlow™ Point-of-Care platform, designed to be implemented in a variety of quantitative tests, including devices intended for testing coagulation rates (blood thinners), C-reactive protein (CRP), HbA1c, and several other potential clinical diagnostics applications.

Eveia’s patent pending cell quantitation technology will also be incorporated into EDI’s AnemiaCheck™ POC Quantitative Hematocrit Test, which will be available for export in Q3 2013. IntraMed Diagnostics recently acquired an option for future development of Eveia Medical’s complete portfolio of point-of-care clinical diagnostic testing assets.

Kingston began his career at B-Ten Systems, Inc., designing robotic assembly machines for medical industries. The company specializes in custom automation, robotics, and machine design manufacturing. As vice president of engineering, Kingston led many high-profile projects, implemented Pro/Engineer® design software with Pro/Intralink® data storage, and established a quality assurance system, design controls, and design standards. He later joined the executive team of Bolt Industries, Inc., where he served as general manager of the company’s Minnesota facility.

“Dean will be key to bringing our innovative testing devices to market. His design and manufacturing skills will help to ensure robust test performance in the field, while maintaining designs that can be manufactured on efficient, fully-automated lines,” says Steve Tyrrell, EDI and IntraMed vice president of research and development. “Having been a part of the team since the inception of the technologies, Dean’s experience will be important as we develop and introduce additional applications to market.”

Kingston is a graduate of Colorado State University, where he earned a degree in mechanical engineering with an emphasis in product design and manufacturing.

Vant-Hull directing integration of software with onsite testing platforms

Dr. Vant-Hull is the former director of research and development at Eveia Medical. During his tenure he was responsible for developing hardware and software to support a new in vitro diagnostics platform for clinical laboratories. Additionally, he has an extensive background in software development, including laboratory automation, high-throughput screening robotic workstations, and development of a tiered Java-based framework for integrating third-party and in-house devices for automating laboratory protocols.

“Dr. Vant-Hull brings the valuable combination of strong software development skills and a sound understanding of science and mathematics. These skills will enable us to develop innovative software applications that are easy to use, while applying advanced algorithms that enhance the performance of associated testing devices,” says Tyrrell. “We look forward to benefitting from Dr. Vant-Hull’s extensive background in biochemistry, engineering, and software development as we further develop our onsite diagnostic technologies.”

During his postdoctoral research at the University of Colorado, Dr. Vant-Hull assisted in biochemical engineering and molecular biology while studying high-density hybridoma cultures in bioreactors. He holds a doctorate in biochemical engineering and a masters of science from the University of Colorado.

Both Kingston and Vant-Hull are based out of the IntraMed Diagnostics facility in Boulder, Colo.
