  • Product Development Process (PDP) Model Types

    Feb 20, 2023 by IDEX Health & Science

    Taking into consideration that the failure rate of new product development is somewhere between 25 – 45% and that only one new product launch succeeds out of seven ideas, it’s obvious that having a standardized innovation process is critical for saving your company time and money. Although it can differ based on the individual needs of a company, there are several approaches that can be used for formalizing a Product Development Process (PDP). Discover 3 of the most recognized PDP.

  • The Evolution of Product Development

    Feb 20, 2023 by IDEX Health & Science

    Product development is the process of taking ideas from the initial concept to the point where a product is launched in the market. Alternatively, it can also be recognized as the method of a formal process followed by a business. Over time, the product development process has evolved and become much more efficient with an iterative fusion of different disciplines. Discover the benefits of fine tuning your product development process.

  • Importance of Degassing Fluids

    Feb 7, 2023 by IDEX Health & Science
    Degassers avoid inaccurate sampling, maintain throughput and reduce errors by removing dissolved gases – even across complex fluid systems – before they outgas into bubbles. Utilizing degassing in your fluidic path is essential for consistent and accurate results.

  • What Goes Where in an HPLC System

    Jan 25, 2023 by IDEX Health & Science

    Of course, fittings are standard items used to connect the components together, using tubing as the flow path bridge between components. Yet, one of the most commonly-asked questions regarding fittings is, “Where do all these fittings go in my system?” In other words, how do I know what to use and where? One common way to distinguish between fittings is by classifying them based on the pressure they can hold. This narrows the fittings choice based on where in the system they will be used. Learn what goes where in an HPLC system.

  • Benefits of Supplier Collaboration in New Product Development

    Jan 11, 2023 by IDEX Health & Science

    The participation of a supplier that utilizes their own PDP internally can improve both the effectiveness of the product development outcome as well as the efficiency of the product development process. The effectiveness of a supplier is related directly to how well they perform compared against the desired product outcome, while efficiency is related to development costs and the required time for the supplier to complete development. Discover the short term and long term benefits of strategic partnership
