Executive Insights Into Single-Use: Barbara Paldus Of FinesseSource: Finesse Solutions, LLC
By Rob Wright, Life Science Leader
In the July 2011 Life Science Leader magazine, I put together an executive roundtable article on single-use technology. The intent -- gain a better understanding of the impact single-use technologies has on the biopharmaceutical manufacturing industry and the environment. I received some great responses from Barbara Paldus, CEO, Finesse, LLC. As a result of space limitations, not all of her answers were published. Prior to joining Finesse, Paldus served as the chief technical officer for Picarro, a company she founded in 1998. At Picarro, she was responsible for technology strategy, research, and business development, which led to a solid-state Cyan laser product in 2003 and cavity ring-down spectroscopy products in 2004. Paldus completed her Ph.D. and M.S.E.E. degrees in electrical engineering at Stanford University. Below are Paldus's executive insights with regard to single-use for all nine of the questions posed to the original roundtable.
