ST. PAUL, Minn. (Feb. 1, 2023) – Intricon, developer and manufacturer of medical devices
powered by smart miniaturized electronics, today announced that it has named Darren Gilmer
senior manager of a new biosensors medical device product development team in the company’s
Biosensors Center of Excellence (CoE).

Since announcing its CoE last month, Intricon has engaged in several new biosensor initiatives,
according to Dave Liebl, chief commercial and technology officer at Intricon. “This new team is
focused on helping companies with biosensor device designs get their devices to market faster,
keeping Design for Manufacturing, quality and regulatory requirements in mind every step of the
way,” said Liebl.

Gilmer was most recently senior manager of manufacturing engineering at Intricon. He has three
decades of experience growing the company’s expertise in creating sensor-driven devices that
are smaller, lighter, and more comfortable for patients. “The biosensor device market is very
complex,” said Gilmer. “There’s not yet agreement on definitions and standardizations, for
example, which makes it challenging to bring a new device to operability or convert a consumer
biosensor device for a medical application.” Gilmer and his team of engineers are focused on
helping companies overcome these challenges and capture the significant opportunities of the
rapidly growing biosensor category.
