We are senior scientists and engineers who speak the languages of business, quality assurance, and regulatory affairs. We provide the translation necessary to go quickly from “blue sky” research concepts to commercialized products. Our experienced team can communicate with physicians, marketing, and research personnel to determine concept feasibility, and with quality assurance, technical support, and manufacturing staff to develop marketable products.
