Health & Life Science Product Design and Manufacturing

One of our past projects is the Behavioral Spectrometer, a humane tool that records every action a research mouse takes without the need for researchers to watch and analyze hours of film. This “mouse house” was designed, tested, and produced by Sigma in our New Product Manufacturing Center. We used our advanced engineering analysis capabilities to include LED lights, isolation dampers, and vibration sensors in the device. With advanced vibration and video analysis, it can record the most thorough descriptions of mouse activity.

This product has seen tremendous success in the research and pharmaceutical industries, notably at Rutgers University’s Department of Neuroscience and Cell Biology, Pfizer, and other international R&D facilities that create new medications. Units were also recently supplied to an Austrian R&D laboratory.

Life Sciences Product Development

It takes a lot of effort to transform an idea into an effective life science instrument. Without the right partner, it can be difficult to gather the expertise and resources needed to turn the idea into a practical, scalable product.

The team at Sigma Design specializes in the life sciences, with a track record of incorporating sophisticated technologies like yours into fully compliant products. We will help you achieve your idea’s full potential and solidify your position as a leader in the field.

Examples of life science products we helped produce include:

  • Blood centrifuges
  • Analytical and diagnostic laboratory equipment
  • Drug administration tools

Project Snapshot: Sigma Design Responds to the COVID-19 Pandemic

As a result of an increase in requests due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a testing facility contacted Sigma to design and manufacture a Bacterial Filtration Efficiency (B.F.E.) test stand to assess how well face masks remove virus particulates from the air.

Sigma designed and constructed an automatic test stand based on two standards: ASTM F2101-19 and EN 14683:2019+AC. The device included a control panel, filter equipment, HMI, and test stand base, where a lab hood from a commercial supplier was mounted. With our customer’s expertise, we sourced and produced specialized components with a high level of laboratory cleanliness to create the testing device.
