Cerus Corporation is a biomedical products company focused in the field of blood transfusion safety. The mission of Cerus Corporation is to establish the INTERCEPT Blood System as the standard of care for transfused blood components globally and enable our customers to do everything in their power to deliver safe and effective blood products to patients.

Job Description:

Cerus Corporation is requesting proposals to generate a draft global Operator Manual for the new INTERCEPT Illuminator. The scope of the manual will be similar to the current operator manual, INTERCEPT INT100 Illuminator, including but not limited to chapters such as Device Description, Use Instructions, Troubleshooting, Cleaning & Maintenance, Transportation & Storage, Warranty and Service. The scope of this project is limited to a draft version of the operator manual that meets the minimum IEC 61010-1:2010 Safety Requirements for Electrical Equipment for Measurement, Control, and Laboratory Use and will be used in design verification and formative human factors studies to evaluate the usability of the system.

A secondary and separate project will be initiated at a later time frame for a refined and finalized version of the operator manual which will be customer facing and used for design validation studies and summative human factors studies
