Quality Policy

 

The Organization is focused on the design and development of a new family of Optical Coherence Tomography systems powered by integrated optical technology, delivering solutions to enhance diagnostics in dermatology.

As a part of our Quality Commitment, DermaLumics will provide best-in-class products to meet or exceed our customers’ cost, quality, reliability and safety requirements and to continuously meet their highest level of expectations. The organization is dedicated to continuous improvement in all facets of its business to enhance our customers’ satisfaction and to ensure the organization’s long term profitable growth.

Because of the relevance of such products in terms of public health and patient safety, our Management is committed to ensuring that all our OCT systems are safe and reliable, exceed customer expectations, are technologically advanced, of the highest quality, cost-effective and fully supported by an excellent customer service.

It is our goal to ensure that our brand new OCT technology allows patients to receive enhanced diagnostics through high-resolution medical imaging and to provide enhanced medical care by minimizing risk, discomfort and morbidity associated to conventional biopsy or surgical operations. Our systems are also designed to improve the standard of care in treatment by improving accuracy in tissue evaluation and guidance for surgical procedures.

We strive for excellence in everything we do: we value trust, integrity and mutual respect, supporting our employees, communities and customers. We are committed to compliance with ethical standards and all applicable laws and regulations.

Equally important is our continuous effort to improve our OCT products, our operating processes and our customer service as the foundation of excellent business performance.

The Organization is committed to these goals, meaning that they are the concern of each employee in the company. True quality starts with understanding our customers’ needs, continues with the design and development of products and processes and flows through each phase of operations performed by all the members of our teams. Our quality and safety processes and procedures are broad in scope and they apply stringent quality and safety standards.

The Organization and its team are committed to complying with the requirements of ISO Standards   9001:2008 and   13485:2012.

The achievement and maintenance of high quality standards in everything DermaLumics does is always focused on these three pillars:

  • Patients, because DermaLumics advocates:
    • Less need for surgical intervention. For example, BCC, SCC and AK can be treated without surgery (topical pharmacological therapy). A fully non-invasive treatment continuum can only be provided by a reliable non-invasive diagnosis, adequate planning and repeated non-invasive therapy controls;
    • Less unnecessary biopsies, especially for high-risk patients with numerous suspicious lesions.
  • Professionals, because DermaLumics provides dermatologists with:
    • Accuracy in the identification of melanoma size after confirmation of primary diagnosis, avoiding unnecessary biopsies and assisting in pre- and intraoperative surgical planning;
    • Non-invasive diagnosis of BCC, AK and SCC, based on real-time imaging with high sensitivity and specificity;
    • A imagining device that can detect where biopsies can be performed in larger lesions;
    • A device that can be used to check progress for non-surgical treatments and follow-up visits for patients;
    • A point-of-care imaging tool that saves time
  • Healthcare Facilities, because DermaLumics facilitates:
    • Savings in treatment costs and reduced diagnosis times;
    • Improvements in patient care and the practice of evidence-based medicine

Maximum job satisfaction is a prerequisite for success as a team and as a company, and a sure path for each member of the Organization. While it is our intention to foster and encourage individual initiative, it is equally important that we all understand the company’s goals and the means laid out to meeting the high standards implicit in them.
