High-quality and agile technical engineering services in Life Sciences markets, helping our customers to deliver successful new products to improve people’s lives.


ADCE has extensive experience of the full span of new product development activities. From requirements definition and concept creation; through detailed design, analysis and testing; to manufacturing transfer and scale-up. We can also provide Project Management and other supporting services for technical development projects. On the commercial side, we can advise and support with funding applications and proposals and with preparing project plans.

We regularly work under ISO 13485 Quality Management Systems.

ADCE can work flexibly, depending on the requirements and circumstances of our customers. We can work fully-embedded within our customers’ facilities and systems to provide direct, ongoing support to their development projects.
