In this biocompatibility webinar, you will learn how to prepare your biocompatibility testing section for an FDA 510(k) submission.
Why you should register for the Biocompatibility Webinar
Notified Bodies prefer to receive a summary technical document (STED) describing the biocompatibility testing for a device rather than being forced to review each testing report in depth. In contrast, the US FDA requires that the full test reports be submitted for review. In addition, the FDA now has specific content questions that are asked in the FDA eSTAR template. These questions ask what conditions were used for testing, the rationale for the samples tested, and on what page information can be found within the testing reports. The FDA also provides a guidance document on the application of ISO 10933-1 that explains specific deviations from the ISO 10933-1 standard that the FDA requires.
Notified Bodies require that manufacturers follow the ISO 10993-1 Standard, and they will accept justifications for not conducting certain endpoint testing. The key to writing a STED is to include enough detail that the reviewer is confident that the required testing was performed, the testing methods were correctly executed and the results met the acceptance criteria. In addition, Notified Bodies need more information about the manufacturing processes, potential contaminants, and residues. The FDA focuses more on colorants and test methods.
In this webinar, you will learn exactly what information is required for both types of submissions and how much detail is required in order to avoid requests for additional information.
