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.
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.
