This is where precision engineering and advanced technologies collide

MTIF supports the development and commercialisation of innovative medical devices and technologies. Our capabilities encompass, but are not limited to:

  • Cleanroom Technologies: Access to GMP-grade C/ISO Class 6 cleanrooms for manufacturing and testing. MTIF’s Innovation Centre’s Cleanroom also houses a Bioquell Isolator Qube, facilitating testing and manufacturing at GMP Grade A standards.
  • Product Design and Registration: Assistance with design, prototyping, and regulatory approval to ensure compliance with Medical Device Regulation (MDR) and In Vitro Diagnostic Regulation (IVDR).
  • Microbiology and Genomic Pathogen Analysis: Advanced microbiological services and genomic analysis for pathogen detection.
  • Cell Therapy Development: Facilities and expertise for developing cell-based therapies.
  • Investigative MRI and Imaging Suite: High-end imaging capabilities for detailed analysis and research.
  • Nanofabrication and Smart Medical Textiles: Cutting-edge technology for developing nano-scale devices and innovative medical textiles.
  • High Throughput Screening and Biocompatibility Testing: Screening for drug discovery and testing materials for compatibility with biological systems.

MTIF emphasises collaboration between academia, industry and healthcare providers. We offer:

  • Collaborative Ecosystem: Bringing together researchers, entrepreneurs, and industry experts to foster innovation.
  • Partnerships with NHS and Industry: Leveraging strong relationships with healthcare providers and industry to streamline the development process.
  • Regulatory and Clinical Trial Support: Guidance through regulatory landscapes and access to clinical trial networks.

Sterile and non sterile medical device manufacturing

Our cleanrooms allow seamless integration with our nanofabrication and thin film capabilities. This enables clients to manufacture and test medical devices in a sterile environment. With equipment such as fume hoods, spin coaters, maskless aligners and a Grade A Isolator Qube, our cleanrooms can fulfil any requirement you might have for sterile manufacturing.

Our prototyping and design capabilities also include non-sterile manufacture. Our proof-of-concept and wearable technologies lab offers an array of 3D printing techniques that clients can use to develop prototypes. In addition our experts within wearable technologies can develop bespoke products to match your specifications.
