Development and Testing
Preciva has purchased computer-controlled equipment which provides the capability to quickly test engineering designs by building prototypes. This machinery can also supply initial production quantities of disposable tips. When prototype design has been finalized, and with adequate financing, hard tooling and molding equipment will be obtained to lower manufacturing costs and generate high production quantities of the disposable tip.
For clinical trials, large healthcare-insurer networks could support the patient costs including HPV testing, Pap testing, colposcopy, and biopsy. Related gynecological product trials have been recently supported by such networks.
