At Innolitics, we specialize in navigating the complex landscape of regulatory compliance for Software as a Medical Device (SaMD). Our team brings a wealth of experience in the U.S. FDA’s software, AI/ML, and cybersecurity regulations and guidance.

We are dedicated to ensuring that your medical devices not only meet regulatory standards but also incorporate the cutting-edge security and functionality that today's healthcare landscape demands.

Our Specialized Services

Regulatory Strategy Development

For those in the early stages of product development, our team provides strategic guidance to lay a solid regulatory foundation. We understand the unique challenges of SaMD and leverage our deep industry knowledge to craft bespoke strategies that streamline the path to compliance.

This service may be relevant for you if you’re asking any of the following:

  • Is my product a medical device?
  • Will adding certain functionality make our product qualify as a medical device?
  • What is the fastest way to get your device onto the market?
  • What are the costs and timelines involved brining a medical device to market?
  • Our team has experience with hardware devices, but we’re adding software or AI/ML features to our product line.
  • Which features should we include in our device first? How will certain features affect the regulatory strategy?
  • We sell our device in Europe already. How can we sell it in the US?
  • Our product didn’t used to be a device, but the FDA is regulating it—what do we do?

Pre-Submission (Pre-Sub) Meetings

Engaging with the FDA early and effectively is crucial for a smooth regulatory process. We facilitate and manage pre-submission meetings, helping you to clarify and address potential regulatory issues before formal submission.

510(k) Submissions

Navigating the 510(k) submission process can be daunting. Our consultants are adept at reviewing and preparing submissions, ensuring that all documentation meets the FDA's rigorous standards.

We provide two services related to 510(k) submissions, depending on your team’s experience and needs.

  • Our Guided 510(k) Service is for teams who can use support, examples, and review of their 510(k), but generally plan to do most of the documentation work themselves.
  • Our Fast 510(k) Service is for teams who are in a hurry and see the benefit of shaving off months from their timeline for a premium cost. This is our most unique service offering and it hinges on our combined software and regulatory expertise. We guarantee the results and timeline.

Requests for Additional Information

In the event of additional information requests from regulatory authorities, our team stands ready to assist even if we weren’t involved with the submission. Our Additional Information Request Response Service provides timely and expert support in interpreting and responding to AI Requests, ensuring timely and satisfactory resolutions that keep your project moving forward seamlessly.

Consultation for In-House Teams

We partner with existing regulatory teams to enhance their capabilities, especially in areas where software intersects with medical device regulation. Our experts can fill knowledge gaps around cybersecurity or AI/ML-specific guidance and FDA expectations.
