Medical Devices

Our experts assess the strength, resistance, durability and ageing of various types of joint endoprosthesis, osteosynthesis products, trauma products, surgical instruments and tissue adhesives. We hold the required accreditations to test the materials, components and complete devices to the major international test standards, and we also develop new test procedures for innovative products, or on occasions where no relevant test standards could apply. 

The types of devices we test include:
