Using Innovation Tools to Develop Sample Preparation Platforms

18 October 2012

Using Innovation Tools

Invetech's Bill Hill, Director, Consumer & Industrial, will speak at Integrating SAMPLE PREPARATION Techniques & Applications in Baltimore, MA later this month.

The challenge of developing a sample preparation platform is a delicate balance of knowing the application, knowing the end user, and solid scientific practice. Although there are many other factors these are the choice few that Marketing, R & D, product managers, and engineers spend time pondering to develop the platforms for sample preparation. Two techniques used developing products that have gained favor in the past decade are Voice of Customer (VoC) and Open Innovation.

Using these techniques without the having a methodology and tools needed to best use the information generated by VoC and Open Innovation can drag the front end of the development process out for months without delivering useful results, creating delays and adding unnecessary cost to the development.

In his presentation, Bill will explore the use and abuse of these techniques, and ways to find a balance to achieve "first time right" results sooner, rather than later.

Integrating SAMPLE PREPARATION Techniques & Applications is an internationally recognized meeting for experts in sample preparation technologies for detection, identification, diagnostics and analysis of biomedical, biological and chemical agents, substances and threats in point-of-care, laboratory and field settings will explore the latest R&D developments, ready-to-market technologies, and their applications.
