The story behind the name Cormica

The story behind Cormica

A Latin-inspired Name for a Mission-driven Company

Cormica is a unique name that has a special meaning behind it. The name is a combination of three Latin words that describe the company’s focus and expertise: corporalis, micro, and chemica.

The word ‘cor’ is derived from ‘corporalis’, which means physical;’mic’ is from ‘micro’, which refers to small or microscopic; and ‘ca’ is from ‘chemica’, which means chemical.

The name Cormica reflects the company’s commitment to providing comprehensive and innovative testing solutions to the medical device industry.

Latin has played a significant role in the history of medical devices and pharmaceuticals. Latin was once the universal language of medicine and science, and many medical terms and drug names are derived from Latin roots. The use of Latin is a testament to the enduring legacy of the language in the scientific community.

The name Cormica embodies the company’s values and commitment to providing innovative solutions to the medical device industry.
