When a Salt Lake City-based biotechnology firm approached us in 2019, they were working with our competitor to help them manufacture specialty neurovascular guidewires, a critical device component designed for two stroke intervention procedures: thrombectomy and endovascular coiling. Upon reconnecting with them a year later, the firm revealed that their current vendor was struggling to […]

3 Supply Chain Bottlenecks in Medtech Manufacturing – and How to Avoid Them

traffic jams or bottlenecks as metaphor for medtech supply chain issues

Manufacturing medtech components for medical devices is a highly precise skill that leaves no margin for error. After all, lives are often on the line, and devices must work reliably and accurately if they’re to execute their missions effectively. But what happens when manufactured components fail to meet the exacting standards they’re designed to achieve? […]

Medical guidewires are often the most critical component within an ever-growing portfolio of interventional devices used for neurovascular, cardiovascular, and peripheral vascular procedures. These wires lead, or ‘guide’, life-saving devices to address critical patient issues such as aneurysm coiling, clot extraction, interventional cardiology, angioplasty, neuromodulation, and thrombus busting and extraction. These high-precision components are commonly […]
