Phil Palmer has been developing medical devices and analytical laboratory instrumentation for over 20 years. He has experience leading multi-functional development teams through the entire product development lifecycle from proof-of-concept through to transition to manufacture. Phil’s technical capabilities include systems engineering, optics and imaging, lasers (diode, solid-state, gas, dye), embedded software, precision motion systems, and thermal management. He has developed aesthetic laser systems, photo-therapeutic and photo-aesthetic devices, a point-of-care IVD digital fluorescence imaging system, blood processing systems, and a series of automated high-temperature Hi-Res thermogravimetric analyzers. Phil holds a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from Ursinus College and obtained his doctoral degree in Chemical Physics from the University of Pennsylvania.
