Medical Device Research, Design, and Manufacturing Service

In addition to our existing contract manufacturing services, Europlaz offers clients advanced stage medical device R&D spaces. This offering is suitable for clients who are undertaking advanced stage Research and Development (R&D) work on new medical devices and require the facilities and services of a regulated manufacturing service but are not yet ready for commercial manufacture. This medical device research and development work works alongside our design options to give you access to a complete product development cycle in one service.

Our medical device R&D service offers you the opportunity to continue to develop your product and manufacturing methods with the input of a certified ISO 13485:2016 manufacturer to ensure there are no costly or time-consuming obstacles once you are ready to transfer to commercial manufacture.

Design and Development Validation in Advanced Medical Devices R&D Space

When developing a medical device, design and development validation must be performed to ensure the product can meet the requirements for the specified application or intended use.

By using Europlaz’s comprehensive design and medical device R&D facilities, design validation can be conducted on representative products which can include initial production units, batches or their equivalents.

Work within our facilities to perform clinical evaluations or performance evaluations of medical devices in accordance with regulatory requirements.

Validation must be completed prior to release for use of the product to the customer and records and results of the validation maintained.


The facilities we have available to rent include:

  • Dedicated medical device R&D laboratory space with access to design, assembly and measurement equipment including injection moulding, ultrasonic welding, bonding and 3D printing.
  • Access to our select group of engineering partners.
  • Transitory cleanroom environment where initial batches of product can be manufactured under our ISO13485 QMS for use in preliminary trials, design validation/verification and showcasing events.

All of the above medical device R&D is supported by our internal team of project engineers who bring years of experience with them in medical device manufacturing and assembly methods.
