Ilika has completed its ten year deal with Cirtec Medical to make solid state batteries in the US.

The deal, first announced in January allows Cirtec to produce the Ilika Stereax range of mm-scale solid state battery range in Lowell, Massachusetts, U.S.

Ilika will continue to focus on advanced technology development and IP licensing in support of Cirtec’s manufacturing and commercialisation activities. This partnership will reinforce Cirtec’s ongoing activities in system level miniaturisation for the medical device industry.

“We are delighted to be working with Cirtec for the commercialisation of Stereax. Cirtec has a strong track record in the commercialisation of miniature medical devices and we believe this partnership is well-positioned to ensure a high quality, reliable and scalable supply of Stereax batteries to our customers,” said Graeme Purdy, Ilika’s Chief Executive Officer. 

Brian Highley, Cirtec Medical Chief Executive Officer, commented: “We are excited by the prospect of adding Stereax battery technology to our portfolio of medical device solutions. Our 20 years of experience in the design, development and manufacture of medical devices positions Cirtec strongly to work with Ilika to bring its Stereax battery technology to market. We believe this collaboration fits right into our strengths and expands upon our mission to vertically integrate our capabilities to support our offerings to the implantable and wearable device markets.”
