Blood Warming System for battlefield use

Friday, June 26th, 2015

hypothermxEMIT HypothermX™ HX100 intravenous Blood & Fluid Warmer is a patent protected portable fluid warming device designed to warm intravenous fluids, blood or blood products infused into a patient to prevent or treat trauma, environmental, procedure related and/or induced hypothermia. Heating is accomplished via a flameless hydrocarbon combustion process fueled with a isobutane/propane mixture.

HypothermX™ HX100 is the first truly light weight (< 3.0 lbs), portable, long-term (>4 hours continuous use) solution to offer actual therapeutic warming in the field for injured patients. HypothermX™ HX100 is capable of warming up to 5 liters of saline introduced at 15° C and 15 units of packed red blood cells introduced at 5° C to 38° C ± 3° C with an infusion rate between 50 ml/min and 200 ml/min and ambient conditions between 0° C and 40° C. The system has numerous safety features and provides the user with the ability to temporarily silence alarms based on operational needs.

Malvern introduces the MicroCal PEAQ-ITC

Monday, May 4th, 2015


Congratulations Malvern.  Malvern Instruments Ltd. expands with the recently acquired GE Healthcare Life Sciences company’s MicroCal microcalorimetry business.  Its great to see products getting through to production close to their original concept!

The Isothermal titration microcalorimetry (ITC) is a very important tool in drug discovery as well as for the regulation and study of protein interaction. MicroCal ITC systems determine the heat released or absorbed directly during a biomolecular binding event. This helps obtain a label-free direct measurement of binding affinity and thermodynamics in one experiment. Comprehensive information is offered for studying a wide range of biomolecular interactions.

Innovative, Inexpensive, disposable surgical tool to improve suturing process

Tuesday, January 13th, 2015

HSD assisted in developing a disposable suturing tool initiated by a grant from TEDCO to transfer and commercialize technology. Designed to be an inexpensive, disposable suturing tool that places sutures at regular intervals by means of a suturing guide. To place a stitch with this device, a surgeon simply places the fascia layer between the two arms of the device and squeezes the trigger. The device also protects the needle from accidentally puncturing the internal organs without the assistance of other currently used protective equipment. HSD designed, engineered and prototyped multiple concepts leading to a final working proof of concept for use in pre-clinical trials.

Software that does most of the work, so you don’t have to!

Saturday, January 3rd, 2015


Check out the new PrimeraDx Software. HSD is proud to see the Modaplex software GUI integrated into the Qiagen Modaplex system designed to automatically run the instrument. Easy to use plate map creation using touch screen s sets up the PCR reactions for simple runs. The software takes it from there!  The graphical user interface design is geared for simple user set up and sample runs of complex single well reactions.


The Modaplex System is an automated, high throughput and high multiplex real-time PCR and capillary electrophoresis instrument. The system is capable of running up to 48 samples and reporting on up to 60 targets per sample in 3.5 hours. Both instrument and GUI were concurrently designed to reduce the complexity for clinical researchers.

HSD adopts JAMA

Monday, November 10th, 2014

JAMA Software DesignHSD has adopted JAMA Requirements Management Software for increased robustness in Design History Files, Traceability and collaboration. “The addition of this software allows our group to more easily conform to our design process based on ISO 13485″, said Bob Barry, Director of Engineering.  He adds, “by embracing an open, collaborative approach to product delivery, we avoid work arounds in our process and eliminates the communication obstacles responsible for product delays”. Seymour Friedel, CTO of HSD, illustrated “the integration it brings across all disciplines, Hardware, Software, and System design helps bring the product faster with increased requirements traceability”.
