Buffer Solution Containers


Design, test and commercialize three buffer solution containers that integrate with a new hemoglobin A1c blood analyzer for a medical device client.  The instrument is used for diabetes diagnoses and maintenance.  The containers are bag-in-box (BIB) pressure vessels that plug into the test equipment interface ports.


Work Performed:

  • Conceptualized buffer container design and how they would work with a new automated high output Hb A1c blood testing instrument

  • Specified the optimal molding process for the container outer shells

  • Redesigned the closure method used for the container that greatly reduced the final cost of the assembled containers.

  • Developed the assembly process for the BIB/pressure vessel units

  • Worked with the container manufacturer to create custom test equipment

  • Completed and documented all required FDA testing for the highly regulated containers.


Quick approval by the FDA and successful launch of new diagnostic instrument.
