Human Factors Considerations For Your Emergency Use Drug Delivery Device

Emergency use medical devices have seen the autoinjector EpiPen leading the way, followed by the emergence of naloxone nasal sprays and autoinjectors for the treatment of opioid overdose, and others. There are use-related challenges in emergency situations, so you will need to give careful consideration to the human factors involved with who is using the device and how it is accessed.

Understanding The FDA's New Medical Device Cybersecurity Guidelines

The FDA cybersecurity requirements for medical “cyber devices” went into effect on Oct. 1, 2023. The FDA has made it clear that it cannot even accept submissions that don’t contain the cybersecurity requirements. This article shares 4 steps to navigate the new requirements.

How To Make The FDA Happy: 7 Medtech Design Pro Tips For Combination Products

This article shares pro tips related to usability studies, design controls, and other human factors engineering best practices to make the FDA happy with your combination product.

Harnessing Connectivity In Medical Device Design

Unfortunately, putting a datalogger in a device and connecting it to a networked database is not a panacea. You’ll need to consider the trade-offs, and you'll need to make the most of your data. And if you are thinking of using AI to help, you'll need to consider that extra layer of complexity.


Preventing IP Theft In Medtech Manufacturing

Preventing IP theft in medtech manufacturing is crucial for both revenue and patient outcomes. Learn the essential questions to ask your partners, ensuring your designs remain confidential.

Designing Portable And Wearable Medical Technology

Advancements in medical and 5G technology have raised the bar for wearable medical devices, requiring a balance between user-centric design and component optimization for optimal functionality.

Injection Molding Of Thin Wall Cannulas — A Lesson In Expertise & Persistence

After 5 years of work, Accumold has developed a high-volume micro injection molding method for thin-wall cannulas, replacing the expensive and less efficient extrusion process for medical device OEMs.


AvaSpec NIR spectrometer components can also be provided as separate products to be used in OEM applications. Avantes has developed different types of NIR optical benches, special for OEM customers. The optical bench AvaBench-50 is available in the 1000-1750nm range for uncooled detectors. The AvaBench-50TEC is developed for NIR range from 1000-2500nm.

Parker Hannifin’s VSO® Low Flow Valves are designed to offer enhanced flow control for applications where flow is required to be between 0 – 500 sccm. These thermally compensated miniature proportional valves provide precise flow control of gases in proportion to the input current, and can be controlled with either DC current or pulse width modulation along with closed loop feedback to deliver optimal system performance.

Large Area Si-APDs – UV-Enhanced APDs
The Large Area Silicon Avalanche Photodiode (Si-APD), C30739ECERH, is intended for use in a wide variety of broadband low light level applications covering the spectral range from below 400 nm to over 700 nm. It has low noise, low capacitance and high gain and is designed to have enhanced short wavelength sensitivity, with quantum efficiency of 60% at 430nm. This Si-APD is well suited for applications including molecular imaging, fluorescence detection and nuclear research.
With the introduction of the BX4 series of brushless DC servomotors, MicroMo once again emphasizes its position as an innovative market leader in highly integrated miniature drive systems. Using the latest production methods, some specially developed by MicroMo, the company has come up with a modular design that is limited to just a few components and entirely eliminates the need for adhesive-bonded joints.

ProMed sets themselves apart from other silicone molding contract manufacturers by eschewing popular 3D printing techniques that create prototypes made from similar materials to what the end result will actually be. Instead, they leverage their Rapid Prototype Development Department to offer their medical device manufacturing customers molded parts using the specified, final material in less than one business week.

Avantes offers four pre-configured spectrometer instruments as stock items for our customers who are working on short deadlines and are in need of Avantes’ superior instrumentation in a shorter timeframe.
