3 Vital Considerations For Medtechs Mulling A Hospital Partnership
3 Vital Considerations For Medtechs Mulling A Hospital Partnership

Each medtech company must consider carefully how its products and services fit its customers’ needs. Some may pursue (or continue) a category-killer approach, and dominate a narrow channel. Others may choose to be market disrupters and produce game-changing technologies. Most of today’s medtech companies have taken a blended approach, but the opportunities to partner with providers in the new outcomes-based healthcare paradigm are enticing.

  • Understanding The Types Of Sterilization For Medical Device Components

    In order to better understand the different types of sterilization for medical device components we refer to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention for a definition; "sterilization is the use of a physical or chemical process that destroys all microbial life including the bacterial endospores that are so highly resistant". By Rena Ivory, Crescent Industries, Inc.

The Role Of Zeta Potential In The Manufacture Of Healthcare Materials

In the manufacture of healthcare products and medical materials, especially ceramic materials like zirconia (used as an implant material) and hydroxyapatite (synthetic bone replacement material), there is often a stage in the manufacturing process involving a powder suspension. By Matthew Cantelo, Lucideon

Medical Device Clinical Trials – How Do They Compare With Drug Trials?

It seems like the clinical research world is often thought of in terms of pharmaceuticals. Clinical trials are often referred to in Phases, such as “a Phase 2 study of a new drug” or “a Phase 3 randomized clinical study with a placebo control.” By Brandy Chittester, IMARC Research, Inc. 

Human-Centred Design And Inhalation Device Development

Human-centred designs have become a driving trend in the development of next-generation inhalation devices, making them more useful, usable, and desirable than current inhalation devices. By applying design research, industrial research, and human factor disciplines in cooperation with design for manufacturing and assembly philosophy, patients are able to receive inhalation devices that minimize opportunities for error, and support greater adherence to their prescribed therapy.

This white paper describes Phillips-Medisize’s approach to human-centered design in producing the next generation of smaller and smarter inhalation devices.

Wavelength-Sensitive Photodiodes- WS Series Wavelength-Sensitive Photodiodes- WS Series

Wavelength-sensitive photodiodes utilize the effect of the wavelength-specific absorption depth of radiation in silicon. First Sensor wavelength sensitive photodiodes are unique photo detectors with two vertically stacked p-n junctions in the single silicon crystal. One junction is enhanced for blue sensitivity and the other is enhanced for red sensitivity. Such a configuration is particularly useful for the wavelength detection of monochromatic input signals.
