Millar Attains Indus Instruments as a New Life Sciences Customer for OEM Pressure Sensor Technology

HOUSTON, Nov. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/

Millar, Inc., OEM solutions partner for MEMS pressure sensors, is pleased to announce the company will be working with Indus Instruments, an innovator in preclinical research equipment, as a life sciences OEM customer. Millar enhances innovation in the life sciences market through OEM sensor integration and is collaborating with Indus to provide 1F pressure sensors for use with their existing implantable mouse telemetry system.

Sridhar Madala, Founder and President at Indus, stated, "I recognize Millar's pressure measurement capabilities as the gold standard for high-fidelity pressure monitoring and I am eager to introduce the technology into Indus' devices now that the sensors are available for OEM integration." Indus Instruments is currently testing the Millar sensors with their equipment and plans to go into animal trials by the end of year.

With Millar's recent departure from selling an implantable telemetry system directly, the company has the opportunity to impact more researchers by integrating high-fidelity pressure sensors into a broader range of life sciences technology platforms.

Supporting the life sciences industry is an integral part of Millar's business strategy. Millar's goal is to build OEM partnerships in life sciences as well as clinical medical device development. Incorporating highly accurate pressure measurements into devices can enable advanced research discoveries and improve diagnostic accuracy. While it can be a challenge to bring one device to market, Millar seeks to be a core or complementary technology component of many devices and improve medical innovation at a more rapid pace.
