Press release date: June 24, 2014

At universities all over the country, scientists are churning out the research that can potentially lead to innovative new products. But many of these great ideas get stuck in academic labs because university scientists lack the business experience to develop a commercial product. Today's universities are supporting these products further and assist in the commercialization process.

Montclair State University (MSU) had just such a project; a design for an ultrasonic water treatment system. The system was designed, fabricated and assembled in-house by Sigma Design. Then the system was tested for electronic and water processing at Sigma's 20,000 sq. ft. facility.

For innovators in academia, Sigma Design provides the bridge to the business world with the experience to build the most challenging technical devices and then guide them to market. Sigma Design can assist with prototypes, manufacturing, product testing, packing & transport, and even insurance.

Dr. Meiyin Wu, a professor at MSU and the lead scientist on this venture, described her experience working with Sigma Design as an extremely pleasant and productive experience. "Sigma's staff are highly professional with exceptional skills. Collaboration between MSU/higher education and Sigma is an example of the future of innovation," Dr. Wu said.
