Demand for advanced medical testing devices has accelerated during the COVID-19 pandemic era. We are doing our part by supporting some of the leading medical device companies in the world.
In September 2020, we began a large-scale consulting project with a client to provide consulting at their high-tech facilities throughout the U.S. We were recommended for the project due to our expertise in microelectronics and semiconductor device manufacturing.
The goal of the project is to help our client improve yield and manufacturing of a novel sensor device that can rapidly detect and report COVID-19, traumatic brain injuries, and other urgent medical conditions in the field.
Now in 2021, we are continuing to provide ongoing support for manufacturing yield improvements to help our client scale production and meet market demand by making available rapid disposable test kits with a good shelf life.
Our Project Scope Supporting Manufacturing Scale-up
When we began the project in 2020, we were contracted to review the manufacturing capabilities at each of the semiconductor fabrication plants. Specifically, we were tasked with reviewing the capabilities of each foundry to determine whether they could provide fabrication, testing, and assembly services for medical device manufacturing.
Additionally, we guided our client in the technical and procedural elements of fabrication, assembly, and testing of their devices. We supported product engineering and yield analysis for the semiconductor and microelectronics portions of product development and manufacturing.
“We are confident that our team’s support of this critical project for our client will help them meet their timeline to scale up production efforts to deliver advanced medical devices to the market,” says Abbie Gregg, AM Chief Technology Officer. “Our team appreciated the opportunity to lend our expertise because of the potential impact of increasing the availability of on-the-spot medical device testing for urgent medical conditions.”
