The topic of managing work/life balance came up during a recent meeting. Most of the group acknowledged that it’s a tricky thing to manage. It sounds like it’s just two things: work and life. But it’s so much more than that. Life is broken out into many areas such as family, friends, health, hobbies, and community involvement, just to name a few. Some team members felt like their balance was good, while a few felt that they could do better and wanted ideas.
Personalized medicine approaches can transform the field of biomanufacturing through the use of additive manufacturing technologies. Successful implementation of such processes requires an interdisciplinary effort with engineers, biologists, and clinicians working together to achieve success developing regenerative medicine, microfluidic-based assays, or cell therapy applications.
Enabling Features for Biomanufacturing Applications
Integrating microfluidics into biomanufacturing lines is a very exciting concept. Microfluidics has the ability to miniaturize manufacturing processes such as cell culture, classification, droplet generation, encapsulation, mixing, and more.
Although engineering students graduate from their program well-equipped with the theoretical concepts taught in class, they often lack practical knowledge regarding their particular industry . Such gaps between technical teachings and industry requirements could potentially be filled by integrating an industry perspective into programs and course delivery. Further benefit can be derived when such industry-integrated courses offer new and crucial material.
Many techniques can be employed in order to simplify formal verification testing. These techniques expedite the product development process and reduce cost. During verification planning, the required sample size (and therefore the number of devices that need to be built prior to production), can be minimized by the choice of verification method.
You may not be able to tell a book by its cover, but resolutions offer a peek into individual plans and priorities. When combined, they even offer a glimpse of company culture. Our employees share their 2022 resolutions as inspiration and an invitation for kindred spirits to join us in the new year!
Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies have a huge potential to change the way we look at our current health care practices. AI/ML enable new insights derived from the huge amount of data that is collected every day in the health care sector. This blog provides an overview of the FDA action plan for AI/ML in software as a medical device and lists some best practices.
Let’s talk about what an anodized finish actually is.
A core finishing technique around the world, anodizing is highly valued in the medical industry to promote longevity of devices. It is a finishing process that can be applied to a few different materials, the most common being aluminum (in fact, this blog will only discuss aluminum anodizing).
“I often think of reading books as a means to create a worldview. I want to know what the world looks like today, how we got here and how we can do better tomorrow. The world opportunities and challenges are infinite. It is a gigantic puzzle. That being said, in 2020, I tried to diversify my readings toward creating a big picture of the world – from leadership to technology, retirement, empowerment, society, education, data and startups. Here are 8 of the books I read in 2020.
