ISO 10993-1, Biological evaluation of medical devices - Part 1: Evaluation and testing within a risk management process

12:00 PM ET | 9:00 AM PT | 11:00 AM CT Duration 90 Minutes

Webinar Includes : All the training handouts , Certificate by the Speaker ,Q/A and 90 Min Live Webinar

Overview of ISO 10993-1


All medical devices that have direct or indirect contact with the human body require an assessment of the biocompatibility of the materials used to manufacture the device, with the test schedule depending on the nature and duration of body contact.  Domestic and international regulatory bodies are encouraging the use of risk-based approaches to assess biocompatibility rather than strictly following the specified testing matrix.   

Areas Covered

•      Risk-based approach to Biocompatibility evaluation strategy. 
•      Overview of  ISO 10993-1. 
•      Biocompatibility testing guidelines, costs, and turnaround times.  
•    Leachables and extractables (L&E) testing as an alternative to costly and time-consuming long-term animal testing.

Who will Benefit

Anyone with a desire to be up to date with the current state of the art of Biocompatibility assessment.

Industries who can attend

This 90-minute online course is intended for professionals in the Medical Device, Biotechnology,Pharmaceutical Industry. Although not presently stated in the draft , the same guide could be used by FDA Regulated Industries personnel.
