ESS Start-up is delighted to be working in partnership with Scottish Higgs EDGE winner RD-Support as it enters the next exciting phase of its growth.
RD Support is a global supplier of bespoke medical device design and development with concept to commercialisation expertise.
The in-house, multi-disciplinary team deliver system DFM (design For Manufacture) concepts including microfluidics (passive and active) and medical disposable device design, simulation, prototype instrument and manufacturing concepts, assembly, testing, analysis and plasma coatings.
RD Support ApS is a Danish company which started trading in 2007 to support companies with fast turn-around of injection moulded microfluidic disposable devices. In 2013 Claus Marquordt joined this company as Managing Director and is now expanding the company to a holistic one-stop-shop to support third party development programs from concept to commercialisation of medical diagnostics design and development.
As part of this strategic expansion Claus Marquordt incorporated RD Support Ltd in Scotland in 2014 as RD Support’s R&D centre which has been trading now for 2½ years and is already profitable.
To add value, RD Support Ltd is investing its revenue plus additional funding into innovative new products, enabling technologies and services. A SMART:Scotland R&D programme was just successfully completed and builds the foundation of this exciting new development.
Over the last 2 years RD Support has invested significantly into the development of a graphene layer manufacture process that is easy, cheap and fast. This, we believe, we have achieved and this is the world’s first Design For Manufacture (DFM) graphene layer manufacture process. A patent for this process was filed and accepted by the UK patent officer.
Graphene is the new wonder material with truly transformational possibilities which has the potential to change most products in our lives. Opportunities for graphene enhanced products range from stronger and lighter materials for example for planes, faster and more powerful super-capacitors and batteries for consumer electronics and transport, novel sensors and bio-sensors with so far unachieved sensitivity, stability and specificity. Ultimately it is believed that graphene might replace silicon for computer chips and will support the continuation of Moore’s law.
RD Support has invested significant time and money into building a business around this new, exciting technology. The aim of the successful candidate is to build on the current achievements and build the first demonstrator devices which will enable contract negotiations with development partners and investors. This development has the potential for being a huge game-changer world-wide and revenue and development opportunities are immense.
The company vision is to use the owners’ and employees’ skills and passion to create the company of choice world-wide for innovative and successful graphene product development and launch.
