CEO Exclusive Radio on Business RadioX Spotlights Axion BioSystems

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - August 27, 2015) - On August 11, 2015, CEO Exclusive Radio welcomed to the studio Tom O'Brien and Dr. Jim Ross with Axion BioSystems. Host Soyini Coke spoke with these gentlemen about Axion's cutting edge bio-technology and how they leverage that technology and grow quickly as a business.

Tom O’Brien is the President and CEO of Axion BioSystems, maker of life science instrumentation and medical diagnostic equipment. Since co-founding the company in 2008, O-Brien has led a team that has introduced two new products into the life science market. Specifically, Axion Biosystems is focused on solving problems related to human heart and brain activity. They accomplish this by integrating their core technology -- proprietary electronics and microfabrication methods -- with biology.

Dr. Jim Ross serves as CTO for Axion BioSystems. He has over 7 years of experience in MEMS fabrication, analog circuit design, and neural interfacing technology. Prior to joining Axion, Ross was a product development engineer for Advanced Micro Devices and the co-founder of Nanogrip Technologies, maker of micro-scale devices used to manipulate MEMs components.

In evaluating the key roles and trends as a CEO of an organization in Atlanta, O'Brien noted an advantage particularly crucial to Axion BioSystems growth. "Atlanta has been an incredible place to start a business, with a lot of help at the beginning from the Georgia Research Alliance and access to Georgia Tech facilities," said O'Brien. "And for us, the big trend has been the rapid growth in stem cell technology."

Ross addressed the business implications of Axion BioSystems' specialized technology. "When first developing our device, there was a desire to move away from animal studies." Toxicity Testing in the 21st Century is the movement and legislation in the United States away from animal testing.
