Around 40 new jobs are to be created by a medical devices firm in Dublin, Enterprise Minister Batt O'Keeffe announced today.
Biotrin, a subsidiary of Italian firm Diasorin, is seeking staff to fill research and development, manufacturing and marketing roles at its Mount Merrion branch.
The IDA-supported project will establish the site as the company's headquarters for molecular diagnostics research and development, bringing its total workforce to 100.
Mr O'Keeffe said the new jobs would add to Ireland's reputation as a global leader for life science firms.
"Ireland has a strong cluster of firms in the life science sector with eight of the top 10 pharmaceutical and 15 of the top 20 medical devices companies based here," he added.
"The development of new diagnostic technologies is the type of high-end activity the government is eager to support as part of our efforts to build the smart economy and innovation island."
