Why does he come to China and join Tianlong to start his career?


In the year 2017, he is facing a hard choice. SK group changed its business and cut the IVD business. If staying in SK, he needed to switch to another apartment and give up all the accumulation in the IVD industry. “I don't want to give up all the efforts in those years, and I like being an engineer. If coming to China, I can go on my career since Tianlong has been in the IVD industry for many years. I think Tianlong is a company with great potential and possibility, so I decided to start my new career in Tianlong and China.” Dr. Yu said.


What has attracted him most when working in Tianlong?


From the year 2015 to 2021, Dr. Yu has been in Tianlong for six years. He is mainly in charge of the mechanical engineering and automation of instruments, and now his team has got 35 mechanical engineers.

When he is new to Tianlong, our instruments have not realized full-automation. From Libex to PANA9600S, Tianlong's nucleic acid extractor is upgrading step by step from semi-automation to full-automation. Dr. Yu also innovates the rotary nucleic acid extraction technique and uses it in Tianlong nucleic acid extractor series like GeneRotex 48 series, GeneRotex 96 series, and automatic nucleic acid workstation PANA9600S, which have greatly helped to control contamination and protect professionals in the lab. Tianlong is also the only company in China that owns the rotary nucleic acid extraction technique. With all of the upgrading, our instruments have become more convenient and easy to use for professionals.


“Six years of career life in Tianlong is a time of growth. It's so great to put your thoughts into reality. As an engineer, when you see the instruments you designed extensively applied in the terminal and used by professionals, it can give you a great sense of achievement and confidence.” 


What is an ideal job for Dr. Yu? as long as you own the two things


Tianlong has been an innovative pioneer in the IVD industry and has been doing molecular diagnostics since 1997. Many competitors like SK group and Samsung have given up the business of IVD, but we are insisting on this field.


Dr. Yu is also innovating to upgrade the design of our instruments in all those years. He suggested setting up our industrial design department and assign our engineer to learn the latest design trend. Now Tianlong's products have our characteristics in design and become more identifiable and more representative in the market.
