Medical Device Testing Expert Inspecting Equipment In A Laboratory Environment

Medical Device Testing Laboratories

The ATS (Applied Technical Services) Family of Companies provides mechanical testing capabilities at our medical device testing laboratories. We help these manufacturers ensure quality, functionality, and safety in their products through our expertise in performing various testing methods.
Why Medical Device Testing Laboratories Are Necessary
Medical device testing laboratories serve a crucial role in the development of medical devices. They assist manufacturers in ensuring that their product’s performance adheres to strict standards and regulations. Furthermore, these joint efforts prevent faulty equipment from entering the market and potentially causing harm to patients.
Medical Device Testing We Offer:
Axial compression testing applies a force to compress a specimen. This testing method provides yield and ultimate strength and represents a large portion of fatigue testing since it closely replicates stresses the materials must survive throughout their service lives.
Fatigue testing applies cyclic loading to a structure or coupon. This test identifies a sample’s lifespan, location, and susceptibility.
Instrument and life cycle testing adds mechanical functions onto a unit inside a moderated environment. This test shows the failures, weaknesses, and strengths of the sample.
Lot verification testing confirms whether each lot of product meets the minimum safety and quality requirements before it hits the market.
Non-standard testing encompasses various types of testing. It applies to all new or unusual devices with no accepted testing standard.
Shear testing applies parallel stresses to a sample to cause sliding failure. This test determines the shear strength of a material.
Torsion testing twists a sample around its axis to acquire information such as maximum torque, shear modulus, and torsional shear stress. It can also locate a material’s breaking angle or two materials’ interfaces.
Tensile testing determines the force required to break a composite or stretch the specimen to its breaking point. It provides information on the metallic material’s tensile strength, yield strength, and ductility.
Wear and simulation testing evaluates the performance of a device in everyday conditions to determine if it will fulfill its functions correctly. This test allows manufacturers to improve and optimize their designs before large-scale manufacturing and implantation.
Dedicated Screw Testing
Driving torque testing evaluates the force it takes a screw to penetrate a known substrate. Manufacturers use the data from testing to optimize designs and not overload the bone. Pull-out testing identifies the resistance a screw shows against being pulled out of its substrate.
Medical device testing laboratories frequently perform this test immediately after a driving torque test. Sheer, fatigue, and level testing evaluate the amount of force a screw must withstand while levering or moving due to a rod or plate.
Custom Testing
Our Family of Companies works on numerous projects with no set testing standard every year. Our labs possess the experience needed to understand what regulatory agencies around the world find acceptable. We retain a deep knowledge of test designs to meet our client’s needs.
Partnering together, we can navigate the testing process—whether novel or cutting-edge designs. From inspection to realization, we conduct countless types of testing, and we center everything we do around the goal of approval.
