Cobot Testing Auto Injectors

5 Steps to Effective Mechanical Testing Automation for Biomedical Labs in CDMOs

The production of auto-disable (AD) safe-injection devices is a core activity for many contract development and manufacturing organizations (CDMOs). Mechanical testing assesses the safety and efficacy of AD syringes before they go to market. With the AD device industry set to grow to over $13.3 billion by 2028, laboratories within CDMOs will perform more tests more frequently. Here we look at how cobot-based systems can help these labs cope with growing workloads by maximizing repeatability and efficiency.
