“Why?” is probably the most powerful question in existence. It is when we refuse to accept traditional thinking about a topic that we make breakthroughs.

Our mission at Munro Medical is to go beyond the status quo and provide in depth research to answer the tough questions, discover new opportunities, and solve the hard problems. With a strong background in biomedical research, patents, regulatory affairs, and engineering, we strive to be a trusted resource for all your medical device consulting needs.


If you know all the answers, then ask new questions.

DIY MEMS: Fabricating Micro Electro Mechanical Systems in Open Use Labs 


DIY MEMS, Fabricating Micro Electro Mechanical Systems in Open Use Labs by Deborah Munro, D. Eng.

THE FUTURE OF MEDICAL DEVICES IS SMALL—MICROSCOPICALLY SMALL. Micro Electro Mechanical Systems, are already used in a host of medical devices, doing tasks that were previously only conceived of in science fiction. Although sensors commonly measure strain, temperature, resistivity, or acceleration in electronics, recently MEMS components are being incorporated into medical devices as well.

This book describes how to locate a lab and conduct your own MEMS research in one of the many national open use facilities established by the National Science Foundation, where you can quickly begin designing and fabricating devices for your applications.

You will learn specific, tangible information on what MEMS are and how a device is fabricated, including what the main types of equipment are in these facilities. Contact information is provided for all of the nationwide laboratories, along with advice on collaboration, intellectual property and privacy issues, and how to navigate other issues that may arise.
