A Netherlands based worldwide operating medical device producer is looking for a small diameter sensor to measure liquid pressure.
The sensor should be ultra-small and applicable in a medical environment.
The company is looking for a collaboration with industrial partners or research and development groups and envisions a license agreement or a technical cooperation agreement.
The company transforms lives through innovative medical solutions that improve the health of patients around the world. As a global medical technology leader for more than 30 years, the company advance science for life by providing a broad range of high performance solutions that address unmet patient needs and reduce the cost of healthcare.
The company is active in the field of interventional cardiology, rhythm management, electro-physiology, peripheral interventions, neuromodulation, endoscopy and urology.
In order to constantly innovate and to meet the high demands in its technological need the company looks for novel technologies and innovations.
The current technology request should be applicable for one or more of the above stated medical fields.
In this specific case the company is looking for a small diameter sensor to measure liquid pressure, in an in-vivo healthcare situation. Diameter and accuracy within the lower, 0-40 mmHg, pressure range are priorities.
The likely specifications for this solution would include:
Diameter: needs to be = 0.0213”Ø = 0,514 mm; desirable if it is = 0.0121”Ø = 0,307 mm
Length: < 0.250” = 6,3 mm
Pressure range: 0-40 mmHg = 33 mBar = 3333 Pas = 0,48PSI
Accuracy: ±1.0mmHg (or better) within 0-40mmHg pressure range
Frequency range DC .. 20 Hz.
Approval for use in the medical space is desirable.
The company would prefer an existing solution to this search, but would consider a co-development project. Therefore the company is looking for SMEs or technical research groups experienced in the field of the development of advanced pressure sensor micro-technology. The company envisions a license agreement or a technical cooperation agreement.
- Type of partner sought: SMEs or technical research groups experienced in the field of the development of advanced pressure sensor micro-technology. Preferably in the medical field.
- Specific area of activity of the partner: SME’s, research groups and other innovators with a focus on the research & development of micro-sensors to measure liquid pressure.
It is expected that the partner supplies material, technology or ideas which eventually will lead to the envisioned device: a small diameter sensor to measure liquid pressure for medical use.
Available for demonstration - In principle the company looks for a direct applicable solution. However, if not directly available the company is open to many stages of development, but focus is on implementation within 5 years or less.
