BizDev International Inc.

Taking your innovation from a simple idea to a real business opportunity.

Research and Development

PluVaMed is a division of BizDev International focusing on the research and development of novel products. We provide you with all services related to the development of your device. Our development process as described below is adapted to suit your needs at all stages of your product development.

Our process includes three major phases:


Concept Work

PluVaMed will help you taking your idea into a real business opportunity. Our Concept Phase includes:
  • Brainstorming : Setup and conduct brainstorming meeting with you, colleagues and our engineering team to document your idea and all potential innovations related to it. We will generate formal invention disclosures and date them in order to protect your innovation.
  •  
  • Patent Applications : We will develop for you an IP strategy and protect your novel idea by searching existing patent databases and helping identify key innovation in your design and file provisional patent applications in Canada, US and Europe taking in account your vision about the product market.
  •  
  • Engineering Drawings & Specifications : We will develop and document all technical specifications and drawings of your design. In order to reduce development costs, we will develop an optimised strategy about the product configurations at different stages of the development while you are in the process of approving your budget to finance the engineering work.
  •  
  • Risk Management : We will conduct a brainstorming meeting to identify risks related to the use of your device in the clinical setting and develop a risk analysis report which is a crucial input document to the engineering work.
  •  
  • Competitive Market Search : We will conduct a market research in order to identify competitive products and help you understand the value of your innovation. This report will be a key document for identifying key design novelties that need your close attention when filing patent applications and developing your prototypes.
  •  

Feasibility Work

PluVaMed will help you develop your prototypes and develop all design requirements including technical, regulatory and IP challenges that need to be addressed in the final product design. Our process includes:
  • Prototyping : We will develop the next generation prototype that is usable in a controlled animal study needed to support statistical analysis and clinical publications.
  •  
  • Engineering Documentation : During this phase, we will finalise all engineering documents that will support the final engineering phase. These documents are crucial for the design transfer to an OEM partner for the purpose of producing the final product design.
  •  
  • Regulatory Plan : We will develop your regulatory strategy and produce a preliminary regulatory plan in order to identify the path and project the timeline of the approval process of your device. This document is crucial in any negotiation with a Venture Capital partner needed to support future development of your business.
  •  

Engineering Work

  • Product Development : We will help transfer the product design to an OEM partner in order to produce the final product under ISO environment, FDA, Health Canada and CE Mark requirements.
  •  
  • Design History File : We will develop and maintain the product design history file of your design in compliance with FDA, Health Canada and CE Mark.
  •  
  • Engineering & Peer Reviews : We will conduct reviews in order to identify product design improvements including customer input, risk issues and engineering challenges
