Technician Testing The Material Of A Medical Device In A State-Of-The-Art Laboratory

Material Testing Laboratory

The Applied Technical Services (ATS) Family of Companies offers our capabilities as a state-of-the-art material testing laboratory. This service is essential in the development process of up-and-coming medical device designs.
What Material Testing Is
Material testing is a well-known discipline that can determine the properties of medical device components. Material testing can take an array of forms, validating and verifying the performance of components under testing. These methods produce qualitative and quantitative results to inform manufacturers about their materials’ capabilities.
Why Material Testing Laboratories Are Needed
Medical devices made using faulty or weak materials can seriously damage patients. Regulatory bodies minimize these risks by issuing standards for manufacturing companies to adhere to during testing.
Material testing laboratories gather the data to inform manufacturers their product’s faults or weaknesses. Manufacturers can then make changes to the materials used, as well as the product’s overall construction.
When Risks Occur
If our technicians may discover risks in materials, they will provide manufacturers with test results so that clients may mitigate or eliminate them. Regulatory bodies, such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), will monitor the device materials throughout their market life to guarantee their quality and safety. They will also implement additional testing and control measures if any risks arise.
