The final proof of our designs' viability lies in how they function under real-world conditions. We are committed to your ultimate success, and our designs mirror this commitment. The following are three from a list of numerous case studies that both validate our process and prove our claims. In each instance, we accepted a design challenge and produced a pragmatic, low-cost product solution that not only met but exceeded our clients' needs.
Anesthesiologists rely on multiple devices to maintain optimum levels of anesthetic gases during surgery. The challenge was to design a device to monitor up to eight different gases and reduce the complexity in a potentially high-stress environment. Solution: The Rascal is a Raman-based spectroscopic gas analyzer that enables the anesthesiologist to monitor physiologic and anesthetic gases in real time. It offers instant readings of a patient's critical inspired and expired gases and works with existing ventilators. Result: Rascal is a valuable tool for anesthesiologists, who can make important observations about a patient's reaction to anesthesia and respond accordingly. The Rascal was awarded the R&D 100 Innovators Award in 1993 and resulted in an acquisition that provided investors with a significant return on investment.
