We understand the science underpinning the products and technologies that our clients want to bring to market.

Understanding fundamental principles

By exploring the first principles of any science, or identifying a mature or emerging technology, we look to see what can be adapted or applied to provide a fast-track solution.

Finding or creating appropriate technology

We regularly create new intellectual property for our clients. Our staff are named inventors on hundreds of patents belonging to many of the world’s leading pharmaceutical and device companies.

Translating science into approved products

Having sourced or invented an appropriate technology, we translate this into commercially viable products which are robust, reliable, safe and manufacturable.

Science at Team

Science from start to finish

Medical device design and development is a balancing act in which the underlying science has to deliver within constraints imposed by engineering, manufacturing, costs and usability.

As physical science underpins almost all of the medical device development work we do, gaining a good understanding early on improves the chances of achieving a successful product on time and to budget.
