Taking A Different Path ISO’s Updated 22442 Animal Tissue Standards — What Changed?

This article provides a high-level summary of the updates to ISO 22442-1:2020 ( Medical devices utilizing animal tissues and their derivatives — Part 1: Application of risk management) and ISO 22442-2:2020 (Medical devices utilizing animal tissues and their derivatives — Part 2: Controls on sourcing, collection and handling).

  • How To Generate The Right Input Data For An Effective Quality Management Review System

    This article is the second in a two-part series about demonstrating CGMP compliance during inspections by establishing a successful quality culture and related systems. Part 1 discussed the importance of “top-down” quality management and “bottom-up” communication of compliance risks and concerns. Here in Part 2, we turn our attention to the input data for an effective QMR.

  • Closing The Perception-Vs.-Reality Gap In CGMP Quality Culture And Compliance

    This article is the first in a two-part series on how to demonstrate a high level of current good manufacturing practice (CGMP) compliance during inspections by implementing a strong quality culture; driving the open, transparent communication of risks; and establishing effective quality risk management and quality management review.

  • 8 Steps For Reading A Lab Leader’s Mind

    Do you develop products for diagnostic or clinical laboratories, such as companion diagnostics, artificial intelligence solutions, or lab automation equipment? Wouldn’t it be nice to know what your customers are thinking prior to developing and launching your product?

Micro-MIM Succeeds At Making Precise Micro Metal Parts

As component sizes for medical devices shrink to micron size, conventional machining may not be the most efficient or consistent method for manufacturing. Learn why Micro-MIM is preferred for components with tight tolerances at high volumes.

Plan For Success With Sustaining Engineering In Medical Device Development And Manufacturing

Sustaining engineering enables the developer to plan ahead, getting the development and design of the device done right the first time, and smoothing the transition to manufacturing. KMC's executive director of engineering, Scott Leon, weighs in on the subject.

How To Uncover The Hidden Value Of Culture In Supplier Selection

The business pain of switching suppliers, both in terms of costs and revalidation time, heightens the importance of making the right decision the first time.

Taking Micromolding To the Next Level

Micromolding requires a high level of intimacy and attention to detail to be successful over the long run, so it’s important to work with micromolder with the capability, scalability, and sustainability to get a product from the design stage all the way to high-quality mass production.

Proto Labs is proud to introduce PolyJet technology to their 3D printing capabilities. PolyJet technology is used to provide designers and engineers with the ability to manufacture elastomeric and overmolded prototypes without investing in tooling. This technology can create 3D-printed parts comprising both elastomeric and rigid materials, as well as multiple colors.

SIMULIA’s solutions for medical device development provides a framework for engineering teams to integrate the tools they use into re-usable, deployable processes. This reduces time-consuming and error prone tasks to improve productivity and consistency, while enabling design exploration studies to find better designs and democratization to expand the user-base for simulation. Lastly, capturing these processes in the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform provides the traceability organizations need when making critical business decisions.
