FDA-Compliant Development and Testing
The design that Nectar created had to both satisfy product goals and comply with FDA regulations governing development and testing. Nectar designed a metered-dosage system that tightly controlled dosage and counted the number of doses delivered. Development included all standard steps—including mechanical design, rapid prototyping, prototype tooling, part inspection, and assembly for clinical testing, as well as creation of a special testing apparatus for performance verification. The design was cost-efficient to manufacture and assemble in production quantities, and adapted to accommodate tolerance variations in standard medication canisters.
