WEBINAR

Sterilisation methods and biocompatibility tests for the validation of new medical devices

Sterilisation and biocompatibility are must do actions for new medical devices. Based on the materials and components used, complexity and configuration of the device, a potentially suitable sterilisation method has to be selected, its influence on the device evaluated and efficacy demonstrated through biological validation experiments. On the other hand, biological investigations, either in vitro or in vivo should confirm biological safety of the device in order to be allowed for further functional studies and clinical trials.

 

In this webinar, you will learn an approach for selecting the most suitable sterilisation method for optogenetic implants and the necessary biological tests needed to prove the device biocompatibility.
