Client Collaboration in Outsourced Medical Device Development

We were thinking about the expression, “When I tell you to jump, you say, ‘How high?’” The intent of this expression is clearly “Do what you’re told,” and we often encounter clients that approach outsourcing in the same fashion. Rather than approaching a partner company from a collaborative standpoint, they believe they have to control every step. Exerting excessive control is usually a response to managing the unknown. Often a client’s fears of entering a […]

Medical Device Design Case Study: Unique FEA Modeling Techniques Support R&D

We recently assisted a Southern California biotechnology company that is developing a novel immunotherapy for treating cancer. Immunotherapy is an exciting emerging field and we were happy to be involved in this potential game-changing technology. This client had strong intellectual property and a strong team of scientists with deep experience and expertise. They came to us with a need to deliver a biologic payload to a target in tissue – and to combine the payload […]

Once they’d signed the contract, the firm essentially went dark […]

One such example is a recent client whose project had previously been at several other medical device development companies over the course of 8 years, before they were referred to REV.1. […]
