"I have been part of the team here at Bioline for the last four years. Before being employed for Bioline I worked for many years in academia, and moving into the industry 4 years ago was a challenge.
Bioline offered me the opportunity to develop and grow in a new direction; I became a more flexible, practical and effective researcher. Now, applying scientific principles to develop and enhance products, tools, and technological advances in different fields has become a passion of mine!
It is inspiring to see how the company has grown over the past four years. Knowing that we are passionate, innovative, striving to exceed expectations and making positive changes inside and out makes it an exciting company to be a part of.
I am looking forward to continuing to develop myself as a senior scientist; developing exciting products, which will make bench work easier and more enjoyable of an experience for our users
Ana Maria Calcagno, Senior Scientist
"I am the U.S. Mid-Atlantic Senior Account Manager for Bioline. I’m the person people see when they want faster PCR or want advice about improving a protocol. You may see me at a conference, your lab, a vendor show, or just in your institute’s coffee shop. Say hello!
As a scientist with 10 years of research experience, focusing on drug development, (Candida albicans, biophysics, and Giardia lamblia) I use my scientific background every day to understand what you are doing in the lab and providing you with the right Bioline reagent to give you the best yield. I was actually a Bioline customer before I joined the team. I’ve personally experienced how Bioline works closely with their customers; doing everything they can to make sure I gained the best results from my research. This is all thanks to my rep at the time, who is now my manager!
The challenges of this job are rewarding; whether it’s learning a new protocol, solving a need for a custom product, or seeing a client’s results. But most of all it is the relationships that are built and the achievements that I see that are most exciting!
In my spare time, I’m an artist and entrepreneur. I’m fascinated by alternative process photography with the use of non-traditional chemistry; there’s something wonderful about watching an image develop on a piece of paper with handmade emulsion in a darkroom."
Jesse Cohen, Senior Account Manager
"I am a Business Development Manager (Asia) based out of Singapore office. My role is to find the right partners in Asia and to work very closely with them to build Bioline brand ing name and expand the business in these regions. Being in this role involves a lot of travel all around Asia and it is great to experience the different cultures, meet various customers and understand the vast differences in politics, customs and business dealings in various parts of Asia. I love to be on the field together with my partners to engage in discussion with our customers. It is gratifying when we have a fruitful discussion and managed to find the right solution to meet our customers’ needs and expectations. Asia is a rapidly evolving region which offers both fresh challenges and big opportunities. I am all up to for taking on the challenge and am excited to be part of the Bioline team.
Away from Bioline, I have another job. A job that I don’t get paid for but is very rewarding, I’m a mummy to a 2.5 years old little girl named Eliza. As I travel quite a bit in my job, I value my family time very much. I spend my off days doing things that we enjoy together as a family such as going to the zoo, cycling, rock climbing, swimming and having an impromptu picnic or outing. It is not easy to strike a perfect balance between work and family, but I try my best to achieve a satisfying, fulfilling and well-balanced life both personally and professionally."

I’m an Account Manager based out office in Australia. I actively promote our high quality products by engaging in discussions with our loyal and friendly customer network. My role has opened my professional network; being in contact with scientists within the academic, clinical and industrial sectors.
I started as a research scientist working in the areas of Immunology and Molecular Biology. Working as an Account Manager is a new and exciting endeavour, which has allowed me to use my expertise and understanding of molecular biology to find the right solution to our customers' needs.
I enjoy that no week is the same; holding morning teas, trade displays at conferences or paying regular visits to our customers. Having this constant contact with the scientific community means I am continually updated with the advancements in research and the latest technologies improving our progress of scientific research.
For everything to proceed as efficiently as possible from point of contact with a customer to the sale, there is a lot of behind the scene action from my colleagues, without whom it wouldn’t be possible. I regularly communicate with my fellow account managers, sales director, marketing, technical, finance and office support staff. I’m quite fortunate to be in a position with continual support. You really do feel as if you’re part of a family network here at Bioline, whether it’s within our Australian team or if it’s during Skype chats with our colleagues overseas.
It is great to be present at such an exciting time where a company is expanding their product portfolio. Bioline is entering into different markets of the life science industry with both quality and innovative products.
As an Account Manager it is both gratifying and fulfilling when a customer has returned with a glowing review of a product you have discussed with them... or when they believe they’ve known you for 2 – 3 years plus!

“Working at Bioline as Distributor Marketing Manager involves travel all over Europe, Scandinavia and occasionally as far as California and Dubai, meeting many interesting people. A rewarding part of the role is becoming an extended part of our distributors business; discovering and planning how to assist with development and growth through the sales of Bioline product families, this has also allowed me to increase my knowledge of international sales, a wide range of cultures, molecular biology and the life science industry.
Operating so closely with distribution partners and our direct sales and marketing counterparts globally has given me a wealth of business development and marketing knowledge, following trends in technology, sales and markets globally. It is good to know that being in this industry contributes to strides forwards in terms of how we combat, diagnose and prevent disease, advance agricultural and environmental research and improve forensic techniques.”

"I am currently one of the QC scientists here at the London site. The most important aspect of my job is to ensure that, through rigorous laboratory testing, all reagents produced meet our own strict quality criteria prior their release. This is to maintain our standing as a provider of quality specialised bio-research reagents that simplify, accelerate and improve life science research.
I have been part of the team at Bioline for almost three years now and the time has flown by. I have seen many changes in this period, most of them have been quite an experience. However I have seen that the vast majority of these changes have directly improved our customer’s experiences; from the purchasing of our reagents to the development of new components used in the latest biomolecular techniques.
We have a number of big challenges ahead, but we as a team here in Bioline UK and internationally will overcome them, improve and continue to grow. To be greatest you must do great things!
Enough about me… I have work to do!"
