Biocompatibility of Polymer Materials

GLR Laboratories is a leading provider of biocompatibility solutions and testing. The regulatory standard for biocompatibility (ISO10093) is rapidly changing and regulatory agencies are scrutinizing biocompatibility studies in greater details than ever before. The notion of biocompatibility as a box ticking exercise has changed to that of custom designed studies addressing a particular device or device family. There is more emphasis on proper selection of test sub systems, extract preparation, overall safety assessments. In this session, we will critically analyse these recent changes to ISO10993 standards and how they will affect the medical device manufacturers.
