UK-based medtech Occuity has selected Surface Technology International (STI) as its manufacturing partner for the Occuity PM1 pachymeter, the startup’s first ophthalmic product. The product aims to enable easier, quicker and safer glaucoma diagnoses, measuring corneal thickness in a matter of seconds.

In support of the PM1 Pachymeters’ launch, which is due in 2022, STI will provide Occuity with manufacturing cell, alongside engineering services. STI has additionally provided Occuity with dedicated space within its facilities and the two firms have begun preparing to manufacture the first batch of devices, to be used in forthcoming clinical trials.

According to a press release, the companies have been undertaking significant collaboration in recent months, using STI services including test development, electronics design and design for manufacturing (DFM).

Occuity CEO and co-founder Dan Daly said: “Key partnerships are vital to successful delivery of our products. As a UK based company, conveniently located just a few miles from our own offices, partnering with STI has already realised significant benefits.”

Jason Arnold, STI’s Head of Sales EMEA, added: “We are thrilled to continue our ongoing partnerships with Occuity. We will bring further value to our collaboration to help this critical and disruptive product successfully enter the market and grow share.”
