Testing of non-active medical devices

Elevate your medical device testing to global standards

About non-active medical devices Testing

Non-active medical devices must be tested against the highest standards to ensure they cause no unintended harm and are fit for purpose. Testing of non-active medical devices involves analysis of the product for chemical residues, leaching and other potentially harmful factors. Professional technicians put your non-active medical devices through a series of tests to ensure they are safe to use. 

Testing non-active medical devices is a crucial part of the product development life cycle. It helps:

  • Provide independent analysis which can reveal design faults
  • Assure buyers and regulators that the product is safe
  • Offer certainty that the product is fit for market
  • Provide evidence that your company has carried out due diligence
  • Reduce the risk of expensive civil litigation
