Sisu Global Health, MSECB client success story

Not only is ISO 13485 Certification a validation of the high standards that Sisu Global follows in our quality procedures to ensure a safe product, but it has also been critical in our expansion. ISO 13485 is recognized as a global standard and being certified with this standard, has opened up new global markets for our novel autotransfusion device, Hemafuse.

Why did you choose to get certified against ISO 13485?

ISO 13485 allows Sisu Global to provide safe and effective products to emerging markets, globally. It has helped us meet an international standard, assisting in the expansion of our product within Kenya and Ghana by meeting regulatory requirements, and helped us establish a quality management system for medical device development.

What are the main benefits of your company after the implementation and certification against ISO 13485?

ISO 13485:2016 has given Sisu Global access to new markets. As a start-up company, this implementation and certification against ISO 13485:2016 has helped us ensure our framework to design and develop medical devices that consistently meet customer requirements across the life-cycle of our devices. The certification has supported Sisu Global in expanding into emerging markets with life-saving emergency medical devices such as the Hemafuse.
