Supporting our Clients through New Product Introduction
Systematically solving challenges that arise on the journey from design release to volume manufacturing
At Tensentric, we recognize that transitioning from design to manufacturing is a perilous time to transfer product ownership, especially in the medical field. Our ability to deliver good design for manufacturing (DFM) is enabled by design engineers’ adjacency to the manufacturing process. Owning manufacturing makes better design engineers and better designs. We support our clients’ projects through V&V and small controlled builds, to NPI and line validation and small volumes, all the way up to volume manufacturing in our FDA-registered facility because we know that having the design engineers present during the transition process improves knowledge transfer, quality and efficiency.
Fulfilling the Need for Low-Volume, High-Complexity Domestic Manufacturing for Biological Systems
Cell and gene therapy systems and medical devices aren’t always suitable for large contract manufacturers
Tensentric’s sweet spot for manufacturing is high-complexity systems which require small to medium volumes of validated products built under quality controls for initial market introduction or to support clinical trials. This makes us uniquely suited for the cell and gene therapy space, which can require high-complexity bioprocessing instruments and consumables that may never reach the volume threshold to be seriously considered by traditional large contract manufacturers, who typically prefer to wait until the product lifecycle is mature with established and consistent demand. Our manufacturing facility in Louisville, Colorado enables us to close the loop with our suppliers and clients faster to resolve any open items and get builds off the ground and processes well documented before considering a transition to low-cost offshore manufacturers.
Flexible Approach with Rigorous Process Control
Robust inspection capabilities and thoughtfully crafted quality system to meet individual client needs
To react effectively to issues that arise in manufacturing, whether due to supply chain, component qualification, or changing volume needs, our manufacturing team is set up to handle adversity with the flexibility to start and stop production and solve issues hands-on in real-time. We have incoming inspection capabilities, including a CMM and trained personnel to qualify supplier components to ensure we start on the right foot for any build. We cater to our client’s long-term manufacturing strategy; our clients own all tooling, documentation, and assembly test fixtures should they choose to transfer after scale-up and manufacturing integration issues are resolved.
