Why is Biocompatibility Testing of Medical Devices Critical?

Even if a material that makes up the medical device has been tested for biocompatibility, processes such as manufacturing, packaging, aging, and sterilization may have adverse effects on the material’s composition and how it reacts in different environments. Because of these potential changes, biocompatibility is an important test protocol that must be completed for every medical device end product prior to receiving global regulatory approvals. An upcoming series of seminars, organized by UL, will discu…
