Track: Tech Theater

Audience Level: All

With the ever increasing requirements in medical device regulations about risk management, considering all potential options in your biological evaluation plan (see ISO 10993-1: 2018) can help identify potential hazards in biocompatibility testing as well as determining a path forward when positive results are observed.

Discussed will be:

  • Sample preparation considerations and post-extraction changes
  • Common positive results, their causes and how to mitigate the findings
  • A positive result isn’t always an adverse one
  • How to test liquids, creams and gels
