Medical device boost for Cambridge

Dr Stuart Hendry, Sphere Medical CEO

A bid to lure more global medical device business to the Cambridge BioMedTech cluster has been boosted by one of its own.

Home-grown Sphere Medical has received official sanction to manufacture new products at its facility in Harston, near Cambridge UK.

An extension to the terms of its current certification means that Sphere Medical can now manufacture its monitoring and diagnostic medical devices, – including its Proxima disposable patient-attached arterial blood analyser – at Harston.

CEO Dr Stuart Hendry had previously revealed to Business Weekly that the company intends to boost headcount in Cambridge once the new manufacturing sanction was secured.

Its share price has stayed rock solid around the 91.50p mark since its bow on London’s AIM market at the end of last week.

The company is a leading developer of innovative patient monitoring and diagnostic products for the critical care market.

Dr Hendry, said: “The successful completion of the audit and certification by TÜV SÜD, our notified body, validates the excellent quality management system which we have at Sphere Medical.

“This scope extension is an important achievement and underpins our capability for commercial manufacture at our Harston facility.”

BioMedTech chiefs at a number of major facilities in the Cambridge Cluster are campaigning to persuade the giants of the medical device sector in the US and Asia to open European facilities in Cambridge.
