WuXi AppTec Associate Director of Regulatory Toxicology Vanessa Haase, PhD, will present on biocompatibility testing as part of biological evaluation and ISO 10993.
Dr. Haase has extensive experience researching cellular and molecular effects of toxicants, with an emphasis on consumer safety and improvements to the risk-assessment process. Her focus in WuXi AppTec’s Laboratory Testing Division is the development of test plans and risk assessments for evaluating the biocompatibility of medical products per the ISO 10993 series of international standards and international guidance documents.
Biocompatibility testing is a critical part of the regulatory approval process for medical devices, as even the best-designed products can produce unintended complications if the materials used cause a biological reaction in the patient.
The Parenteral Drug Association (PDA) chapter dinner takes place at 5:30 pm on September 20, 2018, at the Crowne Plaza in Northbrook, Illinois. Don’t miss Dr. Haase’s important presentation, along with another from ICU Medical on biocompatibility requirements for product evaluation. Space is limited. Register today!
