Cymbet Joins LifeScience Alley Advocacy Organization
Cymbet to work with LSA members to power medical device innovation
Minneapolis, MN August 27, 2014 -Cymbet Corporation announced today that it has become a member of LifeScience Alley which is a global leader in enabling life science business success. LSA is committed to leading the conversation in improving the region’s operating environment in research and healthcare innovation. Cymbet’s EnerChip™ chip-scale batteries are ideal for medical device innovation as they are completely solid state and fabricated using semiconductor processes. The EnerChip bare die batteries can be integrated directly into small medical and healthcare devices using standard wire bond or bumped die attachment mechanisms. EnerChips batteries last the life of the product and are charged using system power, Energy Harvesting or Wireless Charging.
“Cymbet looks forward to working closely with the many LSA medical device members to explore ways to accelerate their new product innovation,” said Bill Priesmeyer, Cymbet President and CEO. “The unique capabilities of EnerChip solid state batteries provide never-before-available energy storage options for companies designing Medical, Healthcare, Fitness and Wireless products.”
EnerChips Go Where Coin Cell Batteries and Super Caps Can Not
EnerChip rechargeable solid state batteries have a footprint as small as the CBC005 bare die that is 1.37mm x 0.85mm x 175 microns thick. Packaged EnerChip RTC devices combine a solid state battery, a power management IC, and ultra-low power Real Time Clock into a single 5 x 5mm package. EnerChip batteries meet all environmental standards and certifications including RoHS, REACH, UN Air Transportation Safety and WEEE disposal.
EnerChip Batteries are 100% Non-Cytotoxic
Medical in vivo and in vitro testing of EnerChip bare die batteries have shown them to be 100% non-cytotoxic which is ideal for powering Medical and Healthcare products. The gamma sterilized Cymbet EnerChip bare die batteries were found to be non-cytotoxic (0% cell lysis) using both the Medium Eluate Method Eluation Test and Agar Diffusion Test feasibility screening procedures. The lack of any adverse biological responses in these very sensitive in vitro cell culture assays is indicative (although not a guarantee) of biocompatible test results in the other in vitro and in vivo aspects of biocompatibility as suggested by the ISO 10993-1 and FDA G95-1 guidelines.
