    Customer: Glen Mills, Inc. NJ

    Industry: Medical Laboratory Devices

    Sub Heading: Sigma Design Company improves the design of a medical device to improve cell culture and tissue engineering capabilities for laboratories.

    Sigma Design Company can be your partner in not only design but also in the manufacture of your new product. Consider the story behind the Glen Mills/Zellwerk Z®RP Reactor System” – a cell disruptor and high-pressure homogenizer. With the discontinuation of their previous French Press manufacturer’s production, Glenn Mills Inc. needed to find a company that could redesign and manufacture the French Press directly for them. They found this in Sigma Design Company. Working with the original design, which was based on a 60 year old medical device, Sigma reverse engineered and redesigned the machine to have more features, better aesthetics, and compatibility with all of the older system’s accessories. This new design incorporated many of the skills Sigma excels at including: tight tolerance machine components, hydraulics, circuit board design, material properties and finishes. With a newly designed product, Sigma Design Company manufactures and assembles these units in our NJ facility, providing immediate customer support, and a short lead time to our customers.

    Sigma is also the manufacturer of the French Press G-M™
