Global pharmaceutical giant relies on Mega Electronics
The global pharmaceutical company Glaxo Smith Kline is using the Faros sensor developed by the Kuopio-based Mega Electronics in its research partnership with McLaren Applied Technologies.
The Faros devices are used primarily for monitoring the heart but can also be used to monitor various other vital functions. Glaxo Smith Kline uses the sensors for, among other things, studying back pain related to ALS.
“We are extremely pleased that a major pharmaceutical company has adopted our measurement technology. It has a multitude of applications and it appears that the cooperation with McLaren Applied Technologies is expanding as we speak,” says Arto Remes, CEO of Mega Electronics.
