A Common Myth in Medical Device Manufacturing: Line Transfers Are Easy

A Common Myth in Medical Device Manufacturing: Line Transfers Are Easy

Capabilities, Surgical Supplies
by Amy Jeary Line transfers are a common occurrence in the medical device industry. However, many people believe that line transfers are easy. This is a misconception. Line transfers can be complex and time-consuming, and there are many pitfalls that can derail a project: 1. Trusting Outdated Processes Line transfers often involve a lot of moving parts, and it is important to have a clear understanding of all the steps involved. If you underestimate the complexity of the transfer or have an over reliance on outdated processes, you may end up running into problems down the road. 2. Thinking All Line Transfers Are the Same This is not true. Each line transfer is unique, and it is important to tailor the approach to the specific project. Testing and validation criteria…

Transform At-Home Monitoring with Quality Private Label Electrodes

Capabilities, Patient Monitoring
Empowering Patients Through Home ECG Monitoring Small electrocardiographs capable of measuring data such as arrhythmia can now be tested at home, eliminating the need for repeated visits to the hospital. This innovation not only saves valuable time but also bridges a critical gap in healthcare accessibility. Nissha recognizes the significance of this advancement, especially for those who face mobility challenges or find it difficult to take time off from work. Until recently, individuals at risk of arrhythmia faced the hurdle of neglecting vital testing due to various constraints. The number of patients suffering from arrhythmia is staggering, with atrial fibrillation alone accounting for over 37 million cases worldwide. Sadly, deaths related to arrhythmias and other causes have been on the rise. With a mission to extend healthy life expectancy and mitigate…

Proven Results: Precision Machining and Manufacturing Are Revolutionizing Surgical Robotics

Proven Results: Precision Machining and Manufacturing Are Revolutionizing Surgical Robotics

Capabilities, Surgical Supplies
by Amy Jeary Surgical robotics has already revolutionized many surgical applications and will continue to do so, allowing for minimally invasive procedures that result in faster recovery times, less pain, and fewer complications for patients. However, the success of robotic surgeries depend on the precision and accuracy of the console’s individual components, and this is where precision machining and manufacturing come in. Precision machining and manufacturing involve the use of advanced computer-controlled machines to produce highly accurate and consistent components. In surgical robotics, these critical components include the end-effectors and patient interfacing instruments, camera and visualization instruments, the surgeon’s control module, and robotic arms for translating motion. To achieve the precision required in surgical robotics, manufacturers use a variety of techniques, such as computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), and…

Revamp Healthcare Product Portfolio With Custom Labeling

Capabilities, Custom Label, Patient Monitoring
by Jason Obrokta Many organizations in the healthcare industry specialize in product categories which fit within their core competencies. However, being able to offer customers a comprehensive package of products is essential to a successful commercial launch. But what does a company do when they need support products which fall outside of their core competencies? There are several options available including capital investment in new equipment and establishment of new supply chains, acquisition of another organization or partnering with another organization who fulfills the product need for the commercial launch. These are all viable options but they require either significant investment, substantial time or potential dilution of the organization’s brand. One of the fastest and easiest methods for rounding out a product offering to customers, all while retaining brand strength…

CM vs CDMO: How Are They Different? What to Look for in a New Partnership

CM vs CDMO: How Are They Different? What to Look for in a New Partnership

Capabilities
by Amy Jeary A critical component of medical device manufacturing has always been speed to market. Every day, medical device organizations are making the decision to outsource manufacturing to be more efficient and effective by choosing a strategic partner with the right in-house capabilities. When it comes down to making the decision to either make internally or partner with an outside manufacturer; the most common reasons to outsource are: 1.  Scale production without major investment. 2. Increase time to market with dedicated resources and manufacturing expertise. 3. Free up money and resources to work on different projects or initiatives. CM vs CDMO CM is short for Contract Manufacturer. CDMO is short for Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization.  The main difference is the development part. Full-services CDMOs handle all innovation and development work that occurs…
