Working as a Garda involves working in a challenging environment - there are challenges on the street and there is also the unsocial aspect of weekend and night work. If you fervently believe in making a difference to the quality of life for people policing is a great choice.

10 new jobs in medical devices sector for south east

10 new jobs in medical devices sector for south east

Q1 Scientific has announced the creation of 10 new jobs for the South East at the launch of its new Irish operation, in the pharmaceutical stability storage business.

Q1 Scientific is based in Waterford and was established to provide a world-class Environmentally Controlled storage facility that services the pharmaceutical, medical device and life sciences industries. It is the first company in Ireland to specialise in the provision of a Stability Storage and Quality Validation service that meets the highest-international standards, as required for such highly-regulated industries.

A key factor in meeting with industry’s strict regulatory requirements for registration of any new drug or medical device is proof that the product will retain its stability under specific environmental conditions. This is also essential in determining the shelf-life of any product and an integral aspect of the product development process.

“Our purpose-built facility in Waterford offers clients from across the life sciences sector with state-of-the-art stability storage that far exceeds the strict international registration standards demanded by the production of pharmaceutical and medical devices,” said Q1 Scientific CEO Louise Grubb “We greatly look forward to growing the business over the coming years and becoming a world-leader in global stability storage solutions,” Grubb added.
