Prediction of behaviour during production or in use. The fact that the prediction of pregnancy or a day to day monitoring of blood glucose level can be carried out, easily and with reliability at home is testament to the integrity of the medical device component manufacturing industry. The interaction between manufactured parts with the fluids they are designed to come into contact with is crucial to their correct operation and/or their acceptance within the body. The inappropriate wetting of the electrode contained within a test kit for blood or urine or a vein stent could result in a false indication or a critical failure.
Allow Gerhardt to consider the specific requirements of your industry and customers, along with the properties of your sample material to determine which available technology will provide the most robust data: tensiometry (DataPhysics DCAT range) or optical (DataPhysics OCA range.
Ultimately it will be the combination of our experience, the quality of the instrumentation available and the care with which we guide users through the interpretation of early sample data that will ensure the maximum impact and return on your companies investment.
