Corrosion Testing for Medical Devices Webinar

Corrosion testing is critical to understanding how a material reacts with its environment. Clients use Eurofins EAG corrosion testing services to solve, prevent, and mitigate corrosion problems including, premature failure, structural integrity, and contamination. In addition, corrosion testing helps ensure proper materials selection, a critical manufacturing step that prevents future problems.

Corrosion testing is particularly important in medical device systems since uncontrolled release of metallic ions can have damaging biological effects. This webinar will cover FDA regulation of medical devices, the most commonly used test standards, and custom testing at Eurofins EAG Laboratories.

In this webinar we will cover:

  • Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Regulation of Medical Devices
  • ASTM F2129-19a: Standard Method for Conducting Cyclic Potentiodynamic Polarization Measurements to Determine the Corrosion Susceptibility of Small Implant Devices
  • ASTM F3044-20: Standard Method for Evaluating the Potential for Galvanic Corrosion for Medical Implants
  • ISO 10555-1-2013: Intravascular catheters – Sterile and single-use catheters – Part 1: General Requirements Annex A – Test method for corrosion resistance
  • Customization for internal quality control and third party verifications
