The e-Zassi.com U.S. Regulatory Calculator
The e-Zassi.com U.S. Regulatory Calculator is proprietary software powered by a current database of information on classified medical devices. Anyone involved with medical devices – from researchers to engineers, technology transfer agents, business development officers, medical device companies and investors – can use the new FDA Regulatory Calculator by inputting non-confidential product attributes and physical details about their new product or technology. The e-Zassi.com U.S. Regulatory Calculator searches and provides the potential predicate codes and other critical regulatory information in just minutes, rather than more than two months, which is often how long it takes for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to determine a product’s classification.
“Because many products don’t fit neatly into existing classifications, this process is often a complex and confusing first step when designing a product or making a submission to the FDA,” said e-Zassi Chief Executive Officer Peter M. von Dyck, who holds numerous patents and has commercialized many new medical device technologies. Von Dyck explains that: “Not knowing the potential FDA classification early on can adversely skew the entire development, clinical trials, commercialization and capitalization plans. Understanding and navigating the regulatory environment and classification that a newer medical technology will need to conform to is one of the most essential elements of any development and commercialization plan and without this information early and throughout the development process you are in essence developing in the dark.”
