Abbott Vascular

Addressing Temperature Excursions and Reducing Total Delivered Cost for an Innovative Combination Therapeutic


When Abbott Vascular’s Absorb stents risked non-conformance for temperature when measured by an electronic pass/fail monitor, they called on Modality Solutions to identify the cause, reduce costs of temperature excursions, and assess the cost-benefit of temperature ranges…all before Absorb launched in emerging markets.
