We’d like to introduce you to members of the RD Biomed and Peptest team… let’s meet Adrian.

Versatile Adrian joined the company in April and provides administration support as well as help in the Peptest laboratories.

Adrian explains: “My role is in two parts really. Firstly, as an administrator, I process orders for private patients – mainly from the website – and send them out to customers around the world. I also respond to customer questions and queries on the website, email and telephone.”

“In my role as a Technician, I test customer saliva samples in the laboratory, prepare Peptest orders for commercial customers and take part in research project work.”

Adrian graduated from Hull University with a BA Honours in Business Studies in 2005, before qualifying as teacher and working at three Hull Primary schools. He particularly enjoys the technical side of his new role and learning something new every day in the laboratory.

“Before I started working here, I knew about reflux as some of my relatives suffered from it as babies but I did not know about Pepsin. I have now learnt a lot more about reflux and specifically how Pepsin in saliva is an indicator of reflux.”

Out of the office, Adrian is a keen sportsman and is looking forward to showing off his footy skills with his two daughters as they get a little bit older.

Harvey Dettmar at RD Biomed says: “Adrian has been a fantastic addition to the Peptest team at RD Biomed. He adapted very quickly to the new role  and with his experience at Peptest he will play an important role in developing the global marketing strategy with our international partners”
