Medical Device Seminar

TA Instruments offers a comprehensive suite of analytical tools used for materials characterization. This free one day seminar will focus on characterization of materials and biomaterials used in both medical device applications and medical device testing. Join us as we explore;

  • Thermal and degradation stability of materials
  • Phase transitions and the impact on mechanical properties
  • Influence of material structure on viscosity and processability, e.g. hydrogels, polylactic acid-thermoplastic, sylicones-thermosets
  • Fatigue and standardized testing of medical devices used in cardiovascular, orthopedic and dental applications
  • Stimulation, characterization, and tissue growth solutions for engineered tissues and biomaterials
