Empirical’s guidance and testing will ensure your instruments meet or exceed the latest regulations.
Without proper surgical instrumentation, orthopedic devices would be rendered highly ineffective. Empirical understands that quality instruments are essential to the complete package of any medical device. That’s why we also offer life cycle testing for surgical instruments. We’re experts in a number of static and dynamic test modes based on custom protocols derived directly from surgical technique guidelines. From drop- and impact-testing of insertion tools to fatigue testing of surgical tools, Empirical can help you with your instrument testing regardless of your device or its indication. If there’s no existing ASTM standard, we’ll develop custom protocols to meet the appropriate regulatory requirements.
