More about innovation & research

Concept & prototype creation

2M is experienced in translating new ideas and applications in concepts, prototypes and products. Together with the client we clarify and sharpen the use case, intended use and write the user and product requirement specifications. This way the end-product is already clear from the beginning of the development cycle.

More about concept & prototype creation

product development

2M creates complete end-2-end medical devices including:

  • Complete hardware – physics, photonics, electronics, mechanics, design, connectivity
  • Smart algorithms & vision recognition
  • Embedded software
  • PC application, web, app and Cloud connectivity

Medical device certification

Our services include device certification & testing of a wide range of product classes (CE-IVD, 1m, 2a, 2b).

Verification and validation often together with leading medical institutes.

Industrialization

Once a product has been developed it needs to be industrialized to make sure every product meets the set performance requirements. This is the somewhat less creative but very essential  industrialization part were consistency and proper documentation and traceability are key.

Production

We do small and mid size (upto 5k pcs) productions in house for normal CE products and also for highly specialized medical products that need to be produced under ISO13485 or require extensive calibration and/or release testing. For high volumes we can work with specialized high-volume partners.
