The safety of medical devices is close to our hearts
Medical devices come in virtually all shapes and forms and their uses are just as varied. It can be a device that’s only in short contact with the skin of a healthy person or endoprostheses that stay permanently in the bodies of patients.
Our expertise helps you to develop a proper testing strategy to prove the safety of your medical device according to internationally recognised guidelines (EN ISO, USP, etc.). For this, the method for extraction of the device plays an all-important role for the assay and has a strong influence on the acceptance of the results.
In addition to the classical toxicological test methods, we can also apply humane in vitro 3D-tissue models for assessment of local effects on skin, mucosa or the vagina.
