Properly prepared test articles are critical for accurate biocompatibility testing. As a sponsor of a medical device, it is imperative for medical device manufacturers to understand what to do to ensure a successful test of a proposed medical device.

In an upcoming hour-long webinar, Joy Srinivas, study director, in vivo biocompatibility, at Toxikon Corporation, will discuss the best practices for preparing sample articles for biocompatibility testing with the goal of helping device manufacturers reduce the time and stress involved with initiating studies. The webinar will take place March 7, 2018, at 11 am EST.

During this presentation she will review the most recent regulations, guidance, and standards for sample preparation, in particular ISO 10993-12, as well as the connections and importance of sample surface area ratio, time, temperature, and extraction vehicle. The webinar will also provide practical hints on communicating with testing laboratories to ensure proper characterization of devices.
