In Vivo Testing Services


Nelson Labs Europe’s In-Vivo Biocompatibility Testing Services for Medical Devices

The goal of in vivo testing medical devices is to determine the safety or biocompatibility of the device in a biological environment. 

Biocompatibility testing requirements comes into effect if a product is scheduled for Pre-Market Approval (PMA) or 510k submissions.  Biocompatiblity testing determines the biological reaction of a body to a product/device that comes in contact with it for a defined duration.
