DiCamillo is a graduate of Lake Superior State University and earned an executive MBA from Temple University.

Flocco was appointed to the newly created position of vice president of business development and marketing. He most recently served as business development manager for clinical proteomics and biomarker discovery at Bruker Daltonics before joining Alfa Wassermann. Previously, Flocco worked as the northeast regional sales manager for Ciphergen Biosystems. He worked for eight years at Beckman Coulter in sales, marketing, and technical roles, and also served as director of microchemistry at Princeton University.

Flocco earned a BS in biology at Widener College.
