SenzaGen is proud to be hosting the event Understanding Biocompatibility of Medical Devices on October 2, in Lund, in cooperation with the Medicon Valley Medtech Network.

The regulatory framework of the medical device industry is going through major changes and the complexity of the process is increasing due to new requirements and standards. All medical devices that come into physical contact with patients must be assessed for allergy. Therefore, manufacturers must conduct biological safety evaluations before market approval.

Learn more about biocompatibility, the legal framework and the new ISO 10993
