Advanced Medical Technologies includes areas such as medical devices, diagnostics, imaging and healthcare IT. It’s a broad component of the life sciences industry that holds enormous potential for the Triangle. Currently, more than 200 AMT companies call the Triangle home. Leading the charge in nurturing this industry is ibiliti. Ibiliti was created as one of the North Carolina Biotechnology Center's statewide Centers of Innovation.
Quite possibly the most interesting, and maybe the most promising, component of the Advanced Medical Technologies sector is in combination products. If you're not quite sure what this is, think of a drug that is manufactured and then packaged within a delivery device and the entire product is sold as one unit. Locally, GlaxoSmithKline is doing this exact thing in Zebulon where they make the Advair Diskus.
