Medical Device & Diagnostics
These highly specialized trials require specialized understanding – backed by full lifecycle services – for every category of medical device, diagnostic, and companion diagnostic.
The European Union’s new Medical Device Regulation and In Vitro Diagnostics Regulation mean big changes for the medical device industry. If there’s a common denominator among them, it can be summed up in one word: more.
Not the same
While clinical trials for medical devices have many similarities to those for pharmaceuticals, the regulatory evaluation of devices is distinct – and there are critical differences in the way the device trials are designed and executed.

Building your breakthrough into a successful business
Whether you’re conducting a 10-patient feasibility study or a 10,000-patient post-marketing trial, we know the steps from scientific breakthrough to successful outcomes. Our experience spans just about every type of device, from advanced surgical instruments and meshes to combination products.
Many members of our medical device team come from manufacturers, so they know what questions to ask: What indication provides the best return on investment? What claims make sense? What about pricing, and ensuring that your device will qualify for separate reimbursement?
We understand the differences among categories of medical devices and diagnostics, and our regulatory team tracks the latest U.S. and European policy shifts and regulatory requirements.
