M&A Mirage: Rapid Medtech Adoption Is No Sure Sign Of Commercial Success
M&A Mirage: Rapid Medtech Adoption Is No Sure Sign Of Commercial Success

Clinical and commercial adoption are interrelated, but not identical. Successful medical device acquisitions are predicated on a thorough understanding of how these components fit together. Before acquisition, both target and acquirer must first understand the core scientific and clinical support for the technology, as well as anticipate ongoing hurdles in front of commercial acceleration.

    Back-Door De Novo? FDA Accepts Real-World Evidence For Expanded Use

    Obtaining early clearance with a narrower claim enabled this company to enter the market earlier, as well as use its own product as a predicate to collect real-world evidence — all while obtaining broader clearance and avoiding the requirement to document patient-informed consent during trials, since the device already had been cleared.

  • 7 Elements To Consider When Designing Medical Products For Sterilization
    7 Elements To Consider When Designing Medical Products For Sterilization

    Many medical device project development teams either ignore sterilization challenges until confronted with failed tests late in development, or adopt conservative guidelines that increase cost and lead times. More deliberate, proactive efforts applied to the sterilization topics discussed here can lead to improved outcomes.
