Lucideon, the international materials technology company, is hosting a webinar entitled “Validation and Quality Assurance of Medical Device Cleaning Processes” at 3pm (UK time) on Thursday 28th January 2016.
The webinar will be hosted by Lucideon’s Dr Chris Pickles, Consultant, and Dr Richard White, Head of Testing, and will focus on regulatory guidance, sources of contamination, residue limits and the identification of contaminants and their sources using surface, gravimetric and residue analysis.
Effective cleaning of medical devices can be difficult. With growing complexities in device design including geometries, chemistries and combination devices the task grows even more complicated. If devices do not meet cleanliness requirements they can perform poorly or fail."
“Achieving device cleanliness to below acceptable levels is a regulatory requirement for all medical devices so it is important that cleanliness validation is achieved quickly and effectively for a smooth regulatory process and ongoing peace of mind.”
Dr Chris Pickles.
The webinar is part of a new programme of webinars that Lucideon’s Healthcare Team has put together for 2016. Others planned so far include Product Claims Support/Substantiation for Personal Care and Household Products (18 February) and Wear Testing of Orthopedic Implants (18 April).
