Full Time / San Francisco
COMPANY OVERVIEW 3Scan is a biotech startup in San Francisco that digitizes whole tissue samples through a technique that combines automation, machine learning and artificial intelligence. Our process was invented to revolutionize histology in support of translational medical research, pharmaceutical development and the biotech industry.
Our novel approach captures high resolution images of complete tissue samples, through serial sectioning and simultaneous high resolution image capture, enabling them to compute metrics and apply mathematical models. This technique empowers scientific discovery by creating a map the related structures of the micro-environment and producing not only detailed 3D representations but providing decision support in the emerging field of computational pathology.
3Scan’s growing team of engineers, biologists and data-scientists is united by intellectual curiosity and the desire to further the progress of biology. The VCs of Silicon Valley call us “hot-pink-haired techno punks,” but we embrace all hair colors. We work hard, and we’re passionate about the potential our technology has to change the future of pathology.
Our labs and offices in the Mission District are in the center of San Francisco’s booming science and tech culture: we hold regular talks on topics ranging from histology to optics to polymer physics. 3Scan holds several patents across a variety of disciplines and has trademarked the term Squishware™.
3Scan’s science is multidisciplinary and results-driven. Our values apply to our work and lives. We encourage our team in their work inside and outside the company, whether they’re publishing articles, building art, or dreaming robots.
