Home 9 Analytics 9 Surface Characterisation

A CE Mark certificate is needed to market a medical device in the EU. This certificate verifies that the product is safe and performs as intended. The ISO 10993-1 standard prescribes a process for designing, testing, and documenting the biological safety of a medical device product.

Both implanted medical devices and medical devices that come into contact with circulating blood must undergo a physicochemical, morphological, and topographical (PMT) characterisation to document compliance with regulatory requirements, including shape and form, morphology, topography, surface chemistry, etc.

  • Measurements of physicochemical, morphological, and topographical properties according to ISO 10993-19:2020
