Device Implantation

Assessing the local pathological effects of your test article on living tissue.

Implantable Device Testing

Implantation tests are in-vivo assays used to assess the local pathological effects on living tissue, at both the gross and microscopic level of a test article that is implanted into an appropriate implant site. Standard implant sites include muscle, bone, subcutaneous, intraperitoneal, and brain. The assay is typically performed in albino rabbits but other species are available. Studies can be customized based on species, animal number, implant site, duration and evaluation criteria.
