Claus Marquordt, R&D Support ApS and Ltd, Denmark and UK
For over 16 years Claus has developed design for manufacture microfluidic lab-on-a-chip devices. Since joining RD Support as an owner and managing director he has expanded the fundamental and unique rapid tooling and rapid prototyping capabilities of RD Support to become a leading one-stop shop for development services for bespoke medical device design and development from concept to commercialisation. Design for manufacture is at the heart of all developments at RD Support.
He was paramount in setting up RD Support Ltd as a R&D centre for RD Support to add intellectual property, products and additional skills to the RD Support portfolio. Here, a fast in-line plasma coating process was developed which is now the foundation of world’s first design-for-manufacture graphene production process development for integrating into lab-on-a-chip devices and beyond.
In previous roles he delivered the world's first fingerstick blood immunoassay device and world's first home BNP test.
