Webinar: Accelerate Innovation through Simulation for the Life Sciences Industry
Join us for our June 30 webinar. Register Now.
The Life Sciences industry presents tough challenges with a great demand for new ideas and innovative solutions. These solutions undergo a rigorous testing process within a highly regulated environment that extends the time from conceptual stage to go-to-market.
Moreover, with current social distancing disruptions in the normal work environment, experimental testing has become increasingly difficult if not unfeasible. Additionally, the heightened demand and immediate need for innovative solutions in the Life Sciences industry compounds its existing challenges.
Simulation with its multiphysics offerings in structural, fluid and electromagnetic domains comes to the rescue by reducing the burden of an extensive experimental testing process by maintaining a fidelity to the physical in-vivo environment, accuracy and faster turnaround time in the design process.
Simulation has it all:
- Structural: tissue, muscular-skeleton, implants, medical devices and equipment, etc.
- Electromagnetic: complex field distribution inside the body, functionality of MRI coils and microwave imaging devices, implants and sensors, remote patient monitoring, tumor treatment such as RF ablation and hyperthermia, etc.
- Fluid: hemolysis, blood flow through valves and tubes, blood pump designs, microfluidics flows, etc.
A paradigm shift is in the making transforming the life sciences industry as evident from programs advocated by the FDA.
Key takeaways from the webinar:
- Benefits of Virtual Device Development Environment
- Necessity of Optimization in Life Science Industry
- Preclinical Virtual Trials
