Implantable Devices

Implantable devices take many forms from cardiovascular, endovascular, neurovascular stenting and associated delivery systems to heart valves and pacemakers, through to auditory and ocular implants, such as intraocular or contact lenses. Mechanical testing takes many forms, from static tensile or compressive testing of the constituent metals and alloys, compression or flexural testing of complete devices, through to fatigue of stent materials and dynamic simulation of pressure pulsation.

BIOMATERIALS AND TISSUE ENGINEERING

The study of novel biomaterials and tissue-engineered products remains at the forefront of research around the world. Hard tissues such as bone, dentin, and enamel; soft tissues such as tendons, ligaments, skin, muscles, and arteries; and scaffolds such as hydrogels are all examples of tissue engineered materials or biomaterials. These materials require mechanical testing often in an environment to mimic physiological conditions to understand and characterize force and displacement properties. Mechanical testing of biomaterials typically entails a multitude of tests that include: monotonic tension, compression, or flexure tests, simple cyclic tests, creep, stress-relaxation, and dynamic fatigue tests.

Residual Seal Force Measurement of Parenteral Vials

Parenteral products contained in vial package systems require a robust seal at the interface between the glass vial and the elastomeric closure to prevent contamination and product leakage. The seal is established in the manufacturing process, but must withstand a variety of handling, processing and storage conditions.
