While contracting as a Quality Engineer at Covaris, Mike provided significant support to launch of a new generation of focused acoustic instruments used in biotech labs. He wrote test protocols for and validated software, developed test procedures, designed and built test fixtures for circuit boards, supported board test at an external vendor, maintained bug lists, evaluated degas pump systems, investigated the performance of chiller systems, followed up MRB material issues with vendors, diagnosed and repaired circuit boards, maintained site EMC control materials, and managed a new line of instruments through Product Safety and EMC test certifications.
