Biocompatibility Testing

Medical Device Testing

In vitro & in vivo biological compatibility/safety evaluations are conducted on biomaterials, medical devices, and related products to identify potential risks for the use of a device in humans. Biocompatibility testing ranges from the screening of new materials to product release testing, audit testing, and pre-market safety evaluations to meet current FDA guidance and ISO 10993 standards.

Testing Parameters include exposure durations options, such as, Limited, Prolonged and Permanent. Many contact options are also available: Skin, Mucous Membrane, Breached or Compromised Surfaces, Blood Path (Indirect), Tissue, Bone, Dentin, and Circulating Blood. Extraction options are configurable to meet your specific ISO requirements.

GLP Toxicology Assays

Good Laboratory Practice standards (GLPs) are regulations promoted in the United States by both the FDA in 21 CFR Part 58 and the EPA both for FIFRA in 40 CFR Part 160 and for TSCA in 40 CFR Part 792, as well as internationally by the OECD.

The cosmetics industry is a robust business, achieving greater than $250 billion in worldwide sales in 2013. Although major recognizable brands comprise the largest fraction of this total, there are thousands of small companies that operate in the same markets. While the industry association International Cooperation on Cosmetic Regulation (ICCR) seeks long-term harmonization of testing requirements, currently unaligned governmental agencies in different countries make navigation of safety requirements daunting for major manufacturers and Kafkaesque for smaller firms. While also laudable, the development, validation, approval and implementation of new non-animal safety assays often make the path to cosmetic approval seem more formidable than ever. To aid in navigation of the kaleidoscopic variables of cosmetic ingredient and final cosmetic formulation safety testing, the authors have developed a roadmap to safety assessment, focusing on requirements of the United States, the European Union, Japan and Canada.
