Karr Tuttle Campbell, SeaChange Fund, and Clark Nuber PS are teaming up once again to bring you the latest seminar in the SeaChange Speaker Series: “Medical Devices: From Bench to FDA to Commercialization.”

The program will tackle the complexities of taking a prototype medical device from initial alpha through the requirements for FDA clearance and on to commercialization. The panel will demystify the process of preparing for FDA filing, how to file, including determining classifications, what clinical trials are necessary, and how to prepare for manufacturing. Our esteemed panelists will provide you with a solid understanding of the requirements necessary to create and sell a medical device.
