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.
