ASTM F2502 Absorbable Plate and Screw Testing

The Applied Technical Services Family of Companies (FoC) evaluates bioabsorbable plates and screws for internal fixation implants in accordance with the ASTM F2502 absorbable plate and screw testing standard. Bioabsorbable plates and screws stabilize damaged tissue and bone, and unlike their metallic counterparts, these polymeric implants don’t require removal from the human body. Our medical device testing lab ensures our clients’ absorbable plates and screws are safe, effective, and ASTM F2502 compliant.

What is ASTM F2502?
The ASTM F2502 standard outlines the mechanical characterization of screws and plates for orthopedic internal fixation. The standard covers devices made from resin composites, absorbable resins, or hydrolytically degradable polymers. ASTM F2502 determines the fixation strength and stiffness of polymers, ensuring that absorbable plates and screws perform adequately.
