OEM Optical System Development

Choosing an OEM spectrometer for your new product is just like choosing a spectrometer for your experiment. However, as we discuss in this whitepaper, there are considerations related to making a product that can be reliably manufactured, sustained over time, and capable of meeting various regulatory requirements. This whitepaper provides thought-provoking guidance through the process and helps OEM developers to mitigate risks from early prototypes to final production.

10 Essential Questions for Reevaluating Your Medical Device Assembly Process

Medical device manufacturers that assemble devices and equipment must meet stringent FDA regulations for quality and product consistency, which makes rigorous process control essential. Fluids for medical device manufacturing can be extremely expensive. It is vital to have quality assembly equipment that generates consistent and accurate results, without fluid contamination, to avoid costly waste.

A Computing Platform Based on 4th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors That Provides Flexible and Expandable I/Os for In Vitro Diagnostics Instruments

In the medical world, In Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) instruments are ubiquitously used in hospital labs, doctor offices, and at home. IVD instruments are designed for various qualitative or quantitative diagnostic procedures, commonly called assays, in assessing or measuring the target entity out of the samples. For different assays, IVD instruments are designed with the goal to automate the process, combining and streamlining labor-intensive steps. Based on their applications, these steps could be combined in one self-contained platform, in several discrete platforms, or a combination of both, depending on the application’s needs. Furthermore, some platforms use modularization, starting with minimum modules and then adding modules as the needs grow. This enables laboratories to pick and choose optional modules as needed. With modular design in mind, most IVD instrument providers start with a small footprint platform, and enhance the design with an expandability mechanism to accommodate more modules for future product enhancements. In order to be most effective, an embedded computing platform used in an IVD instrument needs to be easy-to-configure and easy-to-expand.

The True Cost of Bearing Lubrication

Today, machine and equipment manufacturers are feeling more pressure than ever to reduce costs without sacrificing machine performance and this balancing act can be difficult to achieve. Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) often overlook a simple solution that can have a positive, long-term impact on profitability for themselves and their customers: the elimination of bearing lubricant. By eliminating lubrication systems where possible, OEMs can reduce production costs, while at the same time making their equipment more marketable and less expensive to operate for the end users.

Broadening the Scope of User Requirements When Selecting Valves for Medical Devices

It is paramount to move beyond the specifications when identifying the best valve for a device. By broadening the scope of user requirements, one can ensure that a valve will function as expected over the device’s entire life cycle - from manufacturing through clinical use. Below are several requirements worthy of consideration. Although they are important, they often are unshared unless the valve supplier and device engineer engage in open communication early in the purchasing cycle.
