An Inverness medical technology company, which has been involved in efforts to tackle COVID-19, is set to create 60 new highly skilled jobs.
ODx established the medical testing business on Inverness Campus in August 2019, with up to £1.75m investment from Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE).
The company, which already employs 30 people, is developing a device that helps detect the ability of urinary tract infections (UTIs) to resist antibiotics.
The technology, currently going through clinical studies, will help patients by getting faster diagnosis and treatment. It will also save NHS costs on hospital admissions, lab time and reducing antibiotic prescriptions.
ODx can provide answers for treatment options within an hour, instead of the current time of two to three days.
The new roles, based in Inverness will include assembly technicians, lab, office and clinical staff.
