Warning: Everything You Know About Medical Design is Wrong

This medical device whitepaper proves when quality is embedded in the product design and development cycle — coupled with modern risk management tools — supply chain oversights, employee missteps and product design errors can be dramatically reduced.

Reduce Regulatory Delays by Formalizing Design Control Process

The medical device industry stands at the crossroads between innovation and increased regulation. The lack of formal Design History Files (DHF) and Device Master Records (DMR) is one of the most important reasons for issuing non-conformance directives to medical device makers. Luckily, effective Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, can help to facilitate proper management of quality documentation, and ease the pains of the regulatory approval process while accelerating time to market.

Glass-Sealed Connectors Help Increase the Longevity and Reliability of Medical Devices

The electronics inside modern medical appliances need protection from the intense conditions in the autoclave. One of the most important components in this process is the connector, which makes electrical and data connections between device sections. Implementation of high-quality connectors using the right materials is crucial. Inferior components can weaken the protection of the device's electronics. Learn more!
