Concept to Commercial Launch – The Path Travelled

CPC had identified the problem area through a detailed study in IVD industry. On the process of study, CPC found around 46-68.2% of laboratory errors occur in the pre-analytical phase. CPC determined to introduce a product to the market for addressing these errors. CPC chose Srushty as their extended R&D arm and did a detailed market study to identify the challenges in the existing Pre-analytical process. Based on the market study, both Srushty and CPC arrived at the required and mandatory product specifications.

Srushty had taken the responsibility for mechanical, electronics and firmware design & first level of software design for converting this inventive idea to a real product. With a clinical and meticulous approach, Srushty moved ahead in faster pace and developed the first demo product within three months’ time. The demo product was compact and occupied small foot print area and successfully addressed the core functionality of the product. With the success of demo product, Srushty aggressively progressed with design and development and successfully released the product with all required technical specification and features.
