Star is a medical device research, design, and development company. All of our products have safety embedded within them and we believe each of them can contribute to improvements in basic healthcare. We have a core competence in syringe and related devices but all Star products put the accent on the safety of both the patient and the healthcare worker.
The dedicated design, engineering and quality control team at Star have licensed to, and work with, 13 companies worldwide including a global healthcare company in an acknowledged market leading position. To date this collaborative R&D and implementation work has taken the K1 auto-disable syringe from concept to worldwide sales of close to 4bn units. For in-house development and external partners we provide award-winning design and engineering services.
Our products are simple to produce and simple to use. Historically our licensee base has had a bias towards developing countries although this is now changing to a more balanced position. In addition to creating and transferring intellectual property, we offer services covering all aspects of product development from conceptual sketches through CAD and prototyping to a market ready product. Our experience enables us to take an idea from concept to design and then, with our partner client, move the process through all stages of development whether it be an early stage feasibility study on to prototyping and up to a full scale plant turn-key offer. All of our design and development work recognises that the health of both patient and healthcare worker is paramount.
The Company continues to focus on the high volume, injection-moulded product sector, specifically syringe based safety injection devices. However, having for some years been a single product company, Star can now offer up to seven different devices for licensing or sale in a range of configurations.
