Medical device organizations that manufacture products that involve patient contact are almost always required to perform some level chemical characterization evaluation, per ISO 10993-18, to ensure end-user safety. Depending on a device’s intended clinical use, chemical characterization – specifically, extractable/leachable testing – may be required by various regulatory agencies to address biological safety. However, utilizing this type of testing methodology to address various updates to medical devices can prove to be a cost-effective way to assess device changes and their potential impacts to biological safety.

Join us for our webinar on July, 12, 2018, with NAMSA biological safety expert, Duane Mancini, to learn about global regulatory requirements for chemical characterization testing and how manufacturers can use chemical characterization to demonstrate biological safety for their devices.

Discussed will be:

Time will also be allotted for discussion of real-world case studies and Q&A.
