BALTIMORE, Jan. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Engineered Medical Systems, Longeviti Neuro Solutions and The LaunchPort™ announced today that they have entered into an agreement to place new, low temperature, low toxicity hydrogen peroxide sterilization capacity at The LaunchPort™/EMS facility in Port Covington. The systems are being procured by Longeviti to support the Maryland production of their Low-profile Intracranial Devices (L.I.D.) platform. The Longeviti L.I.D. Platform has led to several innovative FDA cleared products thus far, the ClearFit and InvisiShunt, and more are in development. The systems will be operated by Engineered Medical Systems within EMS's regulated medical manufacturing facility at LaunchPort™. These new systems are expected to have completed initial validations by the end of Q1 2020.
At the same time, Longeviti will become an addition to the LaunchPort™ Resident family and will open a development office within LaunchPort's expanded medical device engineering area. That move-in is also slated to be completed in the 1Q of 2020.
Beyond Longeviti's requirements, the excess sterilization capacity will be used to support the needs of LaunchPort's current and future medical device residents, as well as other regional corporate and institutional developers along the I-95 corridor. Parties interested in exploring the use of this new capacity should contact Robert Storey, LaunchPort Managing Partner, at [email protected].
