ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., September 6, 2023— BioFlyte, a bioaerosol surveillance firm with a disruptive new class of fieldable biological threat collection, detection, and identification solutions, today announced the appointment of Daniel (Dan) Gussin as Vice President of Product. In this role, Gussin will lead the company’s product development roadmap and commercialization efforts to ensure that its evolving capabilities continue to exceed customer expectations.
Gussin has more than two decades of proven experience leading product development efforts within the diagnostics and life sciences industries and brings both technical and leadership skills to BioFlyte. Most recently, he served as the Director of Product and Program Management and the Interim Head of Quality at Genalyte Inc., a leading diagnostics and analytics company. He owned the product lifecycle and spearheaded multiple technical programs to increase manufacturing yield and throughput, leading to significant reductions in production costs.
As a Senior Program Manager and Engineering Lead at TE Connectivity, a global in-vitro diagnostic (IVD) and life science engineering consultancy for product design and manufacturing development, Gussin developed and implemented product strategies from concept to FDA submission and commercialization. He also worked with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) on several biothreat sampling detection and identification products, resulting in FDA regulatory approved devices and additional funding. Prior to TE, Gussin also held product development leadership roles at several other diagnostics companies, including Xagenic, Segasist, Alere and Xceed Molecular.
