Full turnkey or standalone services from early stage R&D to high-volume manufacturing
BMT performs research and development (R&D) and customised device manufacturing either as a full turnkey solution or as a standalone service.
Tasks are performed quickly and efficiently. The company also provides external services to customers such as biocompatibility testing, accelerated ageing, or pre-clinical testing of devices in animal models. Performed by external partners, these services complete the turnkey solution and make BMT a one-stop-shop for medical devices.
If a customer only requires some services, and not a full package, these can also be ordered as a standalone service, which can be for instance a benchmark testing of a device or the proof of a certain product concept.
Packaging design and development, crimping and testing of stents
The company offers design and development of product packaging, which pass sterilisation requirements and transportation simulation.
Other services available include the crimping of stents onto balloons. BMT has various methods, depending on the stent material and whether it is a drug eluting stent or not. Besides the crimping, BMT also tests the retention force of the stent on the balloon, as well as expansion behavior.
