Our clients enjoy access to all of our qualified teams. Our internal R&D oversees the material integrity of our products and our Design and Engineering ensure that each design is matched to our client’s product needs and regulation requirements. 

Upholding medical industry standards

Our Quality Management System defines the processes put in place to accompany our clients in a smooth and efficient transition from prototype to series production. This includes establishing strict qualification phases which meet or exceed the standards of the implantable medical market. Qualification steps such as IQ, OQ and PQ are built into our development cycle. 

technical ceramics quality control for ceramic-to-metal feedthroughs in the neurostimulation market

100% of our products are controlled according to the most important criteria :

  • Leak Test for Hermeticity 
  • Electric tests
  • Thermal Shock
  • Dimension Inspection (random sampling, AQL standards)

In addition, our quality systems and checkpoints support our client’s individual specifications.
