The O2k from research instrument to medical device


The legal provisions and their impact on the instrument will be collected and evaluated. An action plan will be developed, describing all necessary steps on the way for the O2k to become a medical device. The most effective but also most expensive marketing strategy would be to seek approval as a medical device simultaneously with a CE Mark and FDA clearance for the O2k, since 44% and 24% of our present research instruments are placed in the EU and US, respectively. Regulatory risks need to be considered for the launch of the O2k as a medical device, versus the risk of loosing a market in the EU, US or other countries when audit requirements become more stringent even in the field of mitochondrial research linked to human health and disease.
