With the FDA promoting a “simulation revolution” to reduce the cost and time of designing and testing new medical solutions, life science companies benefit from our expertise in research, advanced modeling and simulation, and physical testing and analysis.
Our experts help clients save time and money, while also improving the effectiveness of new solutions. We work with companies of every size – from startups exploring new ideas to large multinationals – with all levels of expertise and adoption in modeling and simulation, and from across a range of specialties, such as developers of class I-III medical devices, packaging, protective devices for sports and more.
Our expertise includes:
Virtual Bench Testing
Adopting best practices from ASME V&V to develop simulated bench tests that can supplement and improve the value of physical testing.
Fully integrated test service with custom test fixture design and fabrication, along with comprehensive instrumentation fitting and monitoring.
Parametric Studies & Optimization
Understanding the effect of various parameters – manufacturing tolerances or material property variations, for example – to develop optimal solutions, including topological and shape effects.
Capturing and delivering best practices, methods and workflows in an automated fashion to improve productivity and reuse for future designs.
Virtual Clinical Trials
Applying latest virtual human and animal modeling techniques to improve the effectiveness and design of pre-clinical and clinical trials, and to advance the progress towards virtual (in silico) trials.
