We were very pleased to welcome Jérôme Bernhard as a speaker for an academic symposium on "Clinical Studies with Medical Devices". He shared his broad expertise on medical device development and gave an excellent overview going through the different steps from the idea to the product – showing the way through the multitude of standards and regulations to market approval and beyond.
Dr. Fabian Tay, Specialist in Pharmaceutical Medicine, Zurich
Working with Carag medtech engineers provided the unique opportunity to combine concept development with solution finding. during all stages leading to a new medical device, from the initial idea, to the actual production, the fine-tuning, the organization and access to an animal laboratory, testing the product for safety, and getting all required experts to get involved in the process, Carag uses its own know-how and imports whatever else is required through its network to achieve its goals.
