What do we do?
HBL is a boutique product development consultancy, who specialise in new and enabling technologies. The technologies that are needed to create game-changing laboratory instrumentation, point of need diagnostics, and biosensors. Our experience has come from our own development over many years of work for companies like Sharp, Pall, Abbott, Ford, Dowty Aerospace, GlaxoSmithKline, J&J.
What makes HBL different is that we can efficiently produce practical working demonstration devices in-house, and even provide scale-up services to customers looking to run their own trials and need volumes of devices.
Fresh solutions on-tap
Our service means that your project will gain the attention that is deserves: we always go the extra mile. Your contract work will be treated as a bespoke project and genuine new/novel will be created.
Most of all, you will receive much more than glossy industrial design and reports; we supply solid, working devices in your hands.
All of our work is documented to the standard compliant with our ISO13485/ISO9001 quality system.
