Former Biological Scientist at Astrix Technology Group

There is a great deal on monotony because the team is performing the same tests, at the same time, on the same number of samples, every day. Protocols are established by two government entities and therefore require strict adherence. So, candidates with knacks for process improvement should probably look elsewhere; as those skills will not be utilized. The shift ends when reports that are sent to multiple government agencies. And when I was there, for some reason, the reporting portal was shared by other testing groups; so Biological Scientists had to exercise extreme caution in ensuring that we only transmitted results pertaining to our samples. Basically, this is a good fit for people who appreciate repeating the same daily tasks. The good news; nearly every day, Biological Scientists leave on time without having to take anything home.
