Medical device testing is vital as manufacturers need to comply with stringent regulatory standards such as those set out by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), International Standards Organisation (ISO) and ASTM International, to successfully move their products to market.

Medical device testing assesses a medical device’s performance, material, and biocompatibility in terms of reliability and safety, also extending to rigorous design validation testing and packaging verification.

The importance of medical device compliance

Medical device compliance is necessary to attain approval from regulatory bodies and facilitate quality audits, as well as ensuring product safety. Regulatory bodies can mitigate any compliance issues through corrective and preventive measures and complaint procedures.

Medical device software testing

Software malfunctions pose several risks to medical devices and patients’ wellbeing. Inadequate software testing may cause the risk of disclosing patients’ confidential health information, thereby failing Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance. This damages the reputation of medical device providers.

Medical device software testing services include software validation, verification of the software requirements and design, code reviews and testing, and compliance verification.
