A global leader in skin rejuvenation and aesthetic products had developed a new laser based treatment product but did not have the resources to develop all of the documentation necessary to support regulatory and FDA approval. In order to get the product to market, the company realized they needed to engage with a global EMS partner with facilities certified for medical device manufacturing and the regulatory expertise to support the successful launch of their product. They chose Sanmina.
Sanmina’s Medical Division includes a team of regulatory compliance personnel able to provide medical regulatory services to customers. These services helped this customer bring their product to market more quickly.
- Onsite Engineering and Regulatory Staff
Sanmina assigned a team of engineers together with a regulatory compliance officer and placed them onsite at the company to work with their designers and help prepare the required documents, including the DMR. By having a team onsite early in the design and production cycle, Sanmina was able to provide feedback, optimizing the design for manufacturing and, ensuring the product was released on time.

Sanmina manufacturers a wide range of medical products and had prior experience producing aesthetic rejuvenation products, including critical experience with laser and high intensity light technology.

Sanmina’s documentation system provides revision control and a secure repository for all product documentation, manufacturing instructions and processes.
