Experts Offer Patent Clearance and Engineering for Medical Device and Cosmetics Invention

Medical device and cosmetics invention just got easier.  Medical device and cosmetics experts launch new website to provide engineering and related services.

Satellite Beach, Florida, U.S.A., July 7, 2016 - (PressReleasePoint) Medical device invention and engineering has notoriously been complex and time-consuming.  Cosmetics invention and engineering is significantly less rigorous.  But the division is becoming smaller between the two fields, especially since cosmetics are becoming more complex.  Medical device and cosmetics experts, Dr. Dwight Back and Michele R. Gardill, P.E., are proud to announce the launch of NuTecDev, LLC.  This is a company that offers services ranging from initial concept evaluation through detailed product development to new product production readiness.  Additional services include patent clearance, prototyping, and regulatory filings.  NuTecDev’s new website provides information for doctors and others who have an idea for a new medical device or cosmetic, but who realize they need professional help to succeed.

The medical device and cosmetics fields are merging, and Dr. Back and Ms. Gardill offer the unique qualification of experience in both fields. Dr. Back has over 20 patents to his name, and has just recently helped a doctor bring a medical device idea to fruition.  After years of prototype work, engineering, and regulatory submissions, the FDA has approved the new device and it is now in full manufacture and launch! 

At the new website, there is discussion of Dr. Back’s deep background in Chemical Engineering, and his creative yet fundamental approach to problem solving.  There are links and photos of Dr. Back’s patented medical device inventions.  And there is more about his expertise in: patent clearance, materials selection, design of experiments, silicone technology, and more. 

Ms. Gardill has engineering experience with medical device giant J&J as well as global cosmetics company Mary Kay, Inc, just to name a few.  She has managed engineering departments as well as product development and project management teams.

In both the cosmetics and medical device areas, Ms. Gardill has spearheaded dozens of successful product launches. Usually these efforts spanned from initial marketing analysis through product design and engineering, into processing equipment selection and finally manufacturing and product launch.  Several of these products yield multimillion dollar annual revenues. 

Since cosmetics products are becoming more and more complex, the FDA (and other international regulatory bodies such as Health-Canada, etc.) are noticing that many “cosmetics” actually should be classified as medical devices.  It is common for new individual inventors or start-up companies to be unsure of how their new cosmetic or medical device will be classified.  In order to efficiently develop a new product, it is crucial to understand the classification and related requirements as early as possible.

About NuTecDev, LLC:

NuTecDev, LLC was formed to help individuals and start-ups to clarify uncertainties along the road to product launch, and to provide guidance on specific technical aspects of medical device and cosmetics development.  The team that Dr. Back and Ms. Gardill have selected to join NuTecDev, LLC is made up of trusted experts with substantial experience in their fields.  NuTecDev, LLC is eager to make the road to better new devices and cosmetics quicker, easier, and more efficient all around.  NuTecDev’s website address is
