Understanding the Unique Regulatory Landscape in Medical Devices and Diagnostics
In the process of bringing products from concept to market, there are requirements that are unique to medical devices and diagnostics. Unlike drug development, your product is an “invention” that can be refined if there is evidence to support design modifications. We have performed more than 400 studies in this area, with emphasis on user feedback, to optimize your product.
We Have the Experience You Need to Successfully Execute Your Medical Devices and Diagnostics Trial
Our team has extensive experience across Cardiac/Vascular, Aesthetics, Orthopedics, IVD and general device/surgery and we have successfully supported trials in Asia Pacific, Europe and the U.S. Our team understands the nuances and needs of your trial and can guide you through study design, regulatory pathways, site management and study execution challenges.
Everyone on the team is CFR, GCP and ISO-14155 trained to ensure your program is compliant anywhere in the world. We also have the experience to know how best to budget and operationalize your study, whatever the phase. We understand the requirements and different needs of an FIM/feasibility, pivotal or post-market study.
Our experience covers 510(k), including predicate device evaluation and submission dossier; IDE preparation, including pre-IDE meetings, PMA preparation and submission; CE mark; and medical devices and diagnostics classification determination.
Our expertise includes the following types of study: Combination device-drug delivery products; Health economics and Reimbursement; FIM and Feasibility; Human factor; IVD and Companion Diagnostics; Post-approval and specialized statistical models; and combination products.
