Interview for BioLago

In an interview for BioLago – the health network, our co-founder and CEO Karina Candrian talks about the typical challenges startups are facing when trying to bring a new medical device to market.

Karina for example highlights the importance to think about market access and regulatory issues early on. Ideally as soon as you have a suitable product solution. The intended use and properties of a product determine its classification, which in turn has a significant impact on the approval process, budget and time to market.
