Workshop on medical devices


Chemical characterization of medical devices

Join this workshop hosted by DHI and the Danish Technological Institute (TI) and learn what you need to know about chemical characterization and safety assessment of medical devices.

Purpose and content

The new Medical Device Regulation (MDR) subjects the medical device industry to increased requirements for justification in terms of chemical characterization and safety assessment of their devices.

At this workshop DHI and TI, two experienced partners in the field of testing and assessment of medical devices, will guide you through the regulatory requirements of chemical characterization and safety assessment.

Based on experience and how-to-do, we will present a step-by-step approach to a strategy for testing and documenting your device.

During the workshop we will discuss how to overcome obstacles that may occur during the process.

You are invited to contribute with questions or examples and to share your experience.
