Reading time ( words)

Quanta Dialysis Technologies Ltd, a pioneering British medical technology company developing a personal haemodialysis system (SC+) for patient use at home and in the clinic, announces that it has selected Benchmark Electronics Inc., a global provider of manufacturing, engineering and design services, as its production partner for the SC+ haemodialysis machine.

Benchmark has over 40 years of experience working with medical device companies. With specific expertise in complex medical systems, fluidics and electronics assembly, Benchmark is the ideal partner for Quanta. Importantly, Benchmark’s world-class capabilities in the mass-production of FDA and ISO13485 certified medical devices position Quanta to meet the growing demand for home dialysis solutions such as SC+.

A first batch of prototype SC+ haemodialysis machines was manufactured at Benchmark earlier this year, with final production units expected to follow as Quanta ramps up for commercial launch in the UK in Q4 2019.

John E. Milad, chief executive officer of Quanta said: “With the planned commercial launch of our updated SC+ personal haemodialysis system later this year, it was imperative for us to secure the right manufacturing partner for Quanta – one that shares our passion for excellence and our transformational vision. We are pleased to have partnered with Benchmark—a recognised global leader in the manufacturing and servicing of complex medical devices.”

Todd Martensen, vice president, medical sector of Benchmark said: “Quanta has demonstrated innovation in medical device technology and we are delighted to support them as their strategic manufacturing partner as they bring their products to mass market. Benchmark’s 40-year heritage in medical technologies and our dedicated global medical design and manufacturing team allows us to address our customers’ most advanced challenges.”

About SC+

SC+ is a small, simple and powerful haemodialysis system designed to provide greater flexibility around where, when and how patients manage and receive their dialysis therapy. As a CE marked medical device, SC+ has been successfully piloted with the NHS, demonstrating clinical efficacy and performance compatible with traditional treatment regimens used in-centre. The innovative and patented technology behind SC+ is based on a design breakthrough that allows all dialysate fluid management to be conducted on a small, lightweight, disposable cartridge. The small form factor and simple-to-use design are intended to enable a broader range of users—including patients themselves—to manage dialysis therapy delivery across a wide range of settings—from the clinic to the home.

About Quanta

Quanta aims to improve the lives of dialysis patients by providing advanced haemodialysis solutions for use both in the clinic and the home. Quanta’s lead product SC+ is designed to empower dialysis patients by giving them greater flexibility, convenience and control over the delivery of their life-sustaining renal replacement therapy. Quanta is based in Alcester, UK, and was founded in 2008 as a spin out from IMI plc. The company has attracted funding from a group of leading investors, including: Wellington Partners, Seroba Life Sciences, b-to-v Partners, Stage Capital, ALIAD, CITA, Seventure Partners and Kuwait Life Sciences Company.

IPC Standards Development: Business Challenges and an Inside View

10/28/2020 | Graham Naisbitt, Gen3 Systems
With increasing frequency, standardising the standards, such as ISO 9201, imposes certain rules that must be met to ensure “fair play” amongst the supply chain. There will be those familiar with hearing about “false positives/negatives” and “never trust the salesman,” so mitigating these is no easy task. However, there is the chance for each 5-30 Task Group to review industry requirements and set out the work program for the ensuing period. With that in mind, much of what follows is based on comments we learn about from our industry around the world, many of whom are not yet IPC members. Yes, this is a membership recruitment drive, unashamedly, as well as a search for volunteers willing to help create the standards of tomorrow.
