Hemocompatibility: Preclinical Biological Evaluation of Medical Devices for Interaction with Blood
June 29, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Sign up below for our hemocompatibility webinar. Before being used in humans, medical devices need, in general, to have some testing performed in order to assess their safety profile. This biocompatibility assessment includes various endpoints, among which a certain number are focused on the potential effect on blood – also known as hemocompatibility.
This webinar will present various aspects of hemocompatibility testing: selection of tests, identification of what devices need to be tested and what part of the device needs testing. It will also cover some technical details about how the various tests function: chemically and mechanically induced hemolysis, pro-coagulant effect, effect on platelets and leukocytes, and activation of the complement.
