Sam spent the last 2 years of Northeastern University’s co-op program working for New England Medical Center on blood flow studies and enzyme purification by electrophoresis, After graduating Northeastern with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, he began a career developing medical devices. Medical products developed include catheters, hemodialyzers, dialysate delivery systems, blood tubing sets, anesthesia administration, respiratory care, oxygenators, wearable EKG electrodes, inexpensive medical supplies, blood clotting timer, heart assist device, minimal invasive surgical instruments, organ preservation, ophthalmic devices, flow cytometers, and hematology automation systems.
He then worked 10 years developing biotechnology systems. Biotech products developed by Medical and Biotech Development are used in a variety of diagnostic products and research instruments including: conventional electrophoresis, capillary electrophoresis, HPCE, precast gels, HPLC, preparative columns, microarrays, lab-on-a-chip, blotting, repeatable fluid distribution to 1,536 microtiter plate wells, automated microtiter plate handling, low pressure chromatography, gel dryers, optical scanning systems, DNA synthesis, and lab supplies. Products engineered include: 1 million a month consumables, hand held instruments, desk-top stations and hi through-put automated capital equipment.
While employed by medical and biotech companies, Sam increasingly managed projects and teams of personnel with diverse disciplines. He expanded his role to include marketing, business development, and profit/loss responsibility. To augment his knowledge in these areas, Sam earned an MBA from Pepperdine University in 1985. In the early 1990’s, he started independent consulting and grew the business until it incorporated in 2004 as Medical and Biotech Developments, Inc. In 2012, the corporation was dissolved so that Sam could return to independent consulting while devoting time to assisting communities in need as well as educating and mentoring. Based on his work, Sam has 16 issued US patents and has worked for a wide variety of clients.
