Life Science

Focus on people

PTA’s Life Science division is characterized by intensive synergies between IT and the specialist disciplines of healthcare, medicine, medical technology, chemistry, pharmaceuticals/diagnostics and IT. In all areas of life science, digitalization and IT expertise are playing an increasingly important role in the success of companies. Core processes are becoming increasingly networked and automated. In life science in particular, the focus is on people as users or patients. In our experience, a key success factor for digitalization and networking projects is therefore a good understanding of the technical processes. In combination with precise knowledge and a good understanding of IT systems as well as a lot of experience in dealing with complex project framework conditions such as diverse stakeholders and extensive regulatory requirements, digitalization projects, medical software products and medical devices become successful.

Software development:
From the idea to the product

Increases in efficiency and productivity in the operation of routine testing and diagnostic laboratories are only possible if precise knowledge of the processes can be successfully implemented in software. Companies only become sustainably productive when all aspects of system engineering are competently implemented. This requires a good understanding of the technical framework conditions coupled with experience in the implementation of all aspects of the product life cycle – from organization to quality management to product development.

This is why the PTA’s special ability to combine a high level of expertise in the specialist discipline and in information technology is particularly evident in the life science sector. We accompany you from the idea to the (software) product with a great deal of technical understanding and methodical expertise, help you to develop your software as a medical product with competent quality management and a sense of proportion, or flexibly take over work packages or entire parts of the product life cycle on the basis of our certification in accordance with ISO 13485 or ISO 62304. We understand your use cases, and our many years of experience in networking a wide range of IT systems in the healthcare sector enable us to develop a solution tailored to your needs and those of your employees, customers and patients.


In the future, interdisciplinary and cross-thematic communication between service providers and cost bearers will be largely digital.

Medical Technology

The more the healthcare market focuses on increasing efficiency, the more it automates: In administration, care and diagnosis.

Our expertise

PTA has successfully completed more than 450 life science projects. Of our more than 430 employees, around 100 not only have a scientific background, but also many years of research experience.
As development partners, our teams of experts take on complete IT development projects or provide support in project phases throughout the entire application life cycle (ALM) right through to a product that is ready for approval. We implement quality and risk management in accordance with international standards (ISO 9001, ISO 14971, ISO 13485, IEC 62304, GxP, IVDR, MDR or FDA) and take on the audit-proof or approval-proof documentation of software developments. We support the implementation of IHE/HL7 workflows and electronic patient records, offer expertise in areas such as usability (IEC 62366), requirements engineering, user experience, workflow simulation, virtualization and much more.
