Biomedical Components Testing Using an XY-Stage
Biomedical device companies are constantly making products that need to be tested during both the development and production phases. Recently, a catheter delivery system was introduced to the market that required a push test of the individual components. This proved to be particularly challenging due to the close proximity between the components and their small size.
Our XY Test Stage was used to position the catheter and an upper probe acted as the force applicator. Using the translational functionality of the stage, we were able to precisely move different areas of the catheter system into the test position without having to detach it from the stage.
The XY Test Stage mounts to our single or dual-column testing systems, as well as most non-Instron universal testing systems. Other common applications of the XY Test Stage include the testing of multiple leads located in biomedical sub-assemblies.
Records management compliance with FDA 21 CFR § 11 is non-negotiable for many Medical Device and Pharmaceutical companies. ComplianceBuilder™ (CB) is a stand-alone, add-on compliance solution that can be integrated with Instron’s Software®Bluehill, providing features necessary to meet the latest FDA 21 CFR § 11 regulations.
