Testing and testing scenarios

Besides the use of standard methods, a focus here is on the development of novel test methods. These include above all in-vivo and in-vitro accelerated aging models for active implants, which are necessary to allow the long-term durability of such implants to be determined.

The test systems for medical devices intended for use in aerosol and inhalation therapy follow a risk management approach – the relevant standards such as ISO 20072 do not stipulate the application of particular test methods. Therefore, when it comes to testing novel devices, for example for use in neonates, there is a need to develop new test methods, as there are no suitable test systems available.
