Medical devices

Safety & Preclinical testing

Verification of medical devices safety is mandatory for all manufacturers. We provide safety tests according to IEC/EN 60601 and IEC/EN 61010 standards series, biocompatibility tests according to ISO 10993 standards series and usability testing and evaluation according to IEC/EN 62366-1 to verify the basic safety and the essential performance of active medical devices.
