On-demand Webinar: Requirement of Chemical Characterisation Over Availability of Biocompatibility Studies

Understand the specifics of the chemical characterisation process

Understand the specifics of the chemical characterisation process

A medical device or material that comes in contact with the patient's body is expected to perform its intended function without resulting in any adverse effect to a patient. Potential adverse effects can range from short-term (acute) to long-term (chronic) adverse effects to the body such as mutagenic effects. For this reason, medical devices are typically subject to biological evaluation and biocompatibility testing to evaluate the interaction between a device and tissue, cells or body fluids of the patient.

Chemical characterisation may be used to identify and quantify chemical substances found in medical devices or materials that may contribute to the toxicological and biological risk management for the device. Conducting a chemical characterisation consistent with the requirements of ISO 10993-18 is a critical aspect of a manufacturer’s overall effort to verify the safety of their medical devices. A thorough evaluation of the chemical safety of device components and materials can increase the likelihood of a smooth and efficient regulatory review process.

To navigate through this, our expert practitioner has extended his insights through a webinar, covering an elaborate account of requirement of chemical characterization over availability of Biocompatibility studies.
