Development Y.K
Joined the company in 2021 New Graduate Biomedical Engineering

Current Responsibilities

I have been involved with the research and development of a cell imaging instrument in the System Engineering Department. In particular, I am responsible for the hardware development of a molecular imaging and flow cytometry instrument. This includes the design, test, and build of diagnostic instruments which involve combining many technologies from optics, fluidics, robotics, electronics, and software, so from a technical perspective, the product development process is very exciting.

As hardware engineers, we must also work closely with reagent teams to continually improve the instrument’s performance, through this we are able to learn more about the system as a whole.

Sysmex Career

  • Entry - present

    I do remember when I first joined the company, I was asked to do a self-introduction in both English and Japanese to my department. I had only just started learning Japanese at the time, so I was incredibly nervous. After the presentation, I received a lot of positive feedback and that encouraged me to continue working hard on my Japanese with the goal of improving my verbal communication with my coworkers.
