Kevin Hrusovsky Joins Quanterix As Executive Chairman

Lexington, Mass – (Business Wire) – Quanterix, a leader in high definition diagnostics, delivering ultrasensitive single molecule measurement for the benefit of human health, today announced the appointment of Kevin Hrusovsky as Executive Chairman of its Board of Directors.

Hrusovsky brings over twenty years of experience in life science and diagnostics industries with a strong track record for building substantial value commercializing disruptive technologies. Prior to Quanterix, he was President of PerkinElmer Life Sciences & Technology; CEO of Caliper Life Sciences (sold to Perkin Elmer); and CEO of Zymark (sold to Caliper). Earlier Hrusovsky was President of FMC Corporation’s Pharmaceuticals and International Agricultural Products and held management positions at E.I. DuPont de Nemours.

Hrusovsky received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the Ohio State University (OSU) and M.B.A. from Ohio University.

“I am compelled by the far reaching potential of Quanterix’ Simoa technology, the caliber of its people and Board of Directors and by the impressive opportunity to impact the world,” said Hrusovsky, “Quanterix is poised to enable a whole new field of science and exploration, i.e., unprecedented ability to precisely detect ultra-low levels of proteins in humans and other forms of life.”

The appointment comes as Martin Madaus, formerly the Executive Chairman of the Board at Quanterix, is appointed Chairman and CEO of Ortho-Clinical Diagnostics (OCD) following the close of its acquisition from Johnson & Johnson by the Carlyle Group.
