Teramecs is a company that focuses on the research and development of clinical diagnostic equipment. However, when told, not everyone can quickly picture what a clinical diagnostic equipment really is. Was there ever a time when you had to have your blood or urine taken from you during a health checkup? The equipment that analyzes and report testing results is what is known as a clinical diagnostic equipment.
With the progress and technological evolution of the medical treatment, the market for clinical testing continues to grow. The medical treatment industry is may seem to be a stagnant and a recession-proof industry, however, in reality, with the aging population growing, the market for medical treatment and testing still continues to grow with it.
In the world of medicine, there is an ever-growing demand for clinical diagnostic equipment. The reason? The need for precise prescription of medical treatments. Additionally, from the perspective of preventive medicine, there is an even greater need for clinical testing regardless of the presence of illnesses. There are more than a thousand types of clinical testing, including the testing of blood, urine, body fluids, blood pressure, etc. And naturally, here is where clinical diagnostic equipment comes in, seeking greater precision. The keyword “now”, refers to the “ever faster, and ever more accurate data reporting”, as well as the increasing demand for technological evolution to support the needs of this generation.

You may have heard about the Columbus’ egg. When the discovery of the Americas by Columbus was criticized as inevitable and not worthy of praise, he challenged his critics to stand an egg up.

This unprecedented inspiration at that time brought about the reflection of the importance of creativity in one’s thinking. In the world of medical treatments, Teramecs seeks to bring together young researchers that strive to develop ever greater technology for clinical diagnostic equipment.

Have you ever had the experience that whenever you look at a television, or at a clock, would you not always wonder how it worked, why it moves, eventually end up dismantling it, in the end, to find out, and tried your best to put it back together? If you are a young boy who enjoys fiddling with machines, you are bound to have them. Many of our employees in charge at TERAMECS had that experience and have taken it with them to the next level. Clinical inspection equipment is, simply put, the incorporation of FA (Full Automation) into clinical processes. On the outside, these machines may seem small at first, but inside, it’s not very different from a car assembly line, handling not metal or plastic parts, but body fluids. Every mechanical movement, optical measurement, and temperature, within the machine that interacts the samples and reagents, are performed by small-scale robot units that are controlled by a micro-computer. The assembly of all these components within these sophisticated machines are born from the passion of its inventors. I am sure that those who love working with machines, will never get enough of such creations.
