Rare Cell Detection Medical Device Design Goes to Tooling
Working with Harman Technology and the University of Liverpool, Optima have developed a revolutionary device that will dramatically reduce the cost of detecting rare cells. Our experience in medical device design coupled with our experience to managed the process from design to manufacture has led to a successful partnership with all parties.
The patented design of the medical device has gone through successful small scale trials and is now going to larger field trials with leading research institutes across the globe. Once in production, the unique design will allow users to perform tests in their own laboratory, surgery or in the field giving access to a much wider group of people.
Optima have managed the tool and moulding process for Harman Technology using our procurement experience to source both locally and overseas. The companies selected are based locally to Optima so we can be there in minutes to discuss any issues. Harman were also keen to choose a UK based supplier with the funding coming from the TSB.
The units should be shipped in the coming weeks with full scale production planned for early next year.
