We offers wide rang of laboratory services for medical device testing.
Mechanical forces testing:
Film tensile strength
The thin film is pulled until it breaks in order to measure elongation, tensile modulus, tensile yield strength, and tensile strength at break.
By applying pressure on various materials or components to measure the breaking point.
4 point and 3-point bending
Bend testing is performed in order to measure yield point and flexural strength on all types of product and materials.
Sutures mechanical properties:
Knot pull (U.S.P)
Knot pull is tested by creating a knot in the middle of the test area and pull until reaching breaking point
Suture tensile strength
Suture tensile strength test is a key element in determine the sutures required material.
Needle Pullout test
This destructive test is to evaluate the required tension force to break the needle.
Biodegradable implants tests:
Degradation Profile Tests
The degradation behavior of every bio-degradable material has a pattern that can be measured in order to better understand implementation period and the processes that the material is going through when it contacts body fluid.
This test is used to determine the water content of a materials. The sample is being dried to a constant mass at pre-defined temperature.
This test examines erosion profile of biodegradable components, sutures weight loss during a total time period.
- This test examines the number of cycles needed to raise the coefficient of friction.
Coefficient of friction.
This test examines the number of cycles needed to raise the coefficient of friction.
This test examines the layers of the coating and whether it has missing spots.
Adhesion test for coating or catheter connecting point.
This test examines the forces connecting between the substrate and the coating.
This study’s purpose is to screen and monitor presence of toxic materials according to FDA regulations.
Shelf life acceleration.
The test is performed with elevated temperature and specific Humid conditions to predict product shelf-life at typical storage conditions.
The viscosity of a fluid is a measure of its resistance to gradual deformation by shear stress or tensile stress.
This test is to examine the force needed to open the package seal, which can compromise the product sterilization.
Dye leak test
This test determines the integrity of the package seal and reassures that there are no channels that leak in the pouch seal.
When dealing with biodegradable products humidity test of the package is essential for the product desired shelf life.
This test determines package strength by pressurizing air into the package until it bursts.
