Material characterization for medical devices

Materials property testing for efficacy and performance.

Material properties testing is a critical step in gaining an understanding of material physical property or performance characteristics for safety, strength, impact resistance, and many other qualities.

Gathering knowledge around factors such as the long-term stability of materials and how they will respond to specific processing and manufacturing conditions, and establishing a rate or timeline to decomposition can yield extremely valuable information influencing a product’s final design. This same data can be used to provide regulators with the assurance that the medical device meets safety, performance, and even environmental standards.

Watch our on-demand medical devices testing webinar series to gain expert insight into the critical factors involved in medical device design, testing, and regulatory compliance – including mechanical, fatigue, and durability testing and the rheological study of soft biomaterials.
