Dealing with the COVID-19 situation

 

Dear partners, clients and colleagues,

The entire world is facing an enormous challenge in dealing with the COVID-19 crisis situation. Everyone will have to make a contribution to stop the virus from spreading fast, for example by limiting personal contact to those around you. Our hearts go out to those that are in a critical condition of health, and also to the heroes in healthcare that are actively fighting the virus.

Our team, when social distancing was not yet a concern
Continue to help

The LifeTec Group Team remains available

As unbelievable as it may seem in the face of this health crisis, life should go on as much as it possibly can within the current restrictions given by our governments. LifeTec Group is committed to uphold the restrictions imposed by our government and therefore have limited presence in our labs and offices both for our own personnel as for clients.

However, we also wish to inform you that the LifeTec Group team remains available to you throughout this period to try and help you continue your development of medical devices and therapies. We can imagine that pre-clinical and clinical research will be virtually impossible to conduct at the moment, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that your R&D efforts have to stop completely.

LifeTec Group can offer alternatives for some of your planned work, which may allow some progress to be made. We can be reached online to discuss your project needs, and to plan experimental activities that can be initiated right now, or as soon as the situation allows to. At LifeTec Group, we are even setting up online communications with our laboratory in Eindhoven so that you can have a virtual presence in our lab as long as physical travel is not possible. Our team can conduct some experimental studies in our lab under remote guidance from you, our valued clients and partners.

Offering Platform Technology

This is also the time to consider how our platform technology might help your R&D activities in your own facility. We are ready to discuss your needs, design and customize our research platforms to your specific project needs, and manufacture the platforms according to your input so that they are ready for you by the time that social distancing can be relieved.  Our LifeTec team is ready for you, so please feel free to reach out to our Partner Relations Manager Sheila Owen, Head of MedTech Innovations Marco Stijnen, or our Head of Research Linda Kock to discuss any query you may have.

Doing whatever we can to help

On a more hopeful note, it is heartwarming to see how the world unites to support each other, to offer help where it is needed, how companies are changing their priorities to produce materials and equipment that are needed so much, and how healthy individuals volunteer to help the elderly population even by relatively simple things as bringing groceries to their homes. Also within LifeTec Group, we are doing what we can to help. We have donated materials such as lab gowns, gloves and even a few mechanical ventilator units from our lab to medical care specialists, where at this time they are needed more than in our lab.

We will provide you with updates whenever necessary. Meanwhile, our team wishes you and your family to stay in good health.

 

Warm regards,

Your LifeTec Group Team.
