Analytical testing of medical and combination devices ensures product performance and regulatory compliance.

As medical and combination product prototypes are developed, analytical methods are required to provide loading with the necessary amount of drug. The drug must have the desired stability and release kinetics to allow for appropriate delivery and clinical evaluation.

Testing may include drug assays, degradation product identification and identification/quantification of extractables and leachables for product approval. Also including optimization of drug elution rates from combination devices improves device efficacy.

Exova’s analytical testing experience related to medical and combination devices is extensive and enables us to assist you with method development, method validations, and lot release testing. Our analytical specialists have the expertise and experience to get your product through a comprehensive testing program, shortening the certification process and getting your product to market much quicker.
