Products and projects

In our daily clinical routine, especially in the treatment of small children and infants, we repeatedly encounter situations in which today's possibilities of medical technology are inadequate. An idea and a project sketch quickly emerge from such situations. The CARAG team is able to make a clear estimate of the effort required for product development, regulatory approval and marketing in advance, thus enabling realistic planning. I have experienced this cooperation as very positive and constructive.

Prof. Dr. Christian Balmer, Pediatric Cardiologist, Zurich

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

It's been a privilege and pleasure working with Carag. Their attention to details, the eagerness to listen to viewpoints from the medical profession and to identify and analyze any problems, reflects a true commitment to patient safety.

Dr. Stefan Hallhagen, Pediatric Cardiac Surgeon, Gotenburg

The help of CARAG AG in structuring and correctly starting the regulatory affairs aspects of two different projects was invaluable, quick and professional. Thanks to the quick and always straight to the point feedback, the projects are thriving. We would highly recommend having CARAG AG as a partner and we are looking forward to a continued collaboration.
