Developing a Testing Plan for Medical Device Design Verification
Stephen Spiegelberg Ph.D.
President, Cambridge Polymer Group, Inc.

Presentation Abstract:

A proper verification testing plan during the design of a medical device can help streamline the design process and improve the chances for a good clinical outcome by ensuring that the individual design outputs are meeting the required design specifications. Aspects of design verification include material selection and quality acceptance criteria, device specific testing according to the key performance aspects and potential failure modes, potential aging conditions that would influence shelf life and clinical life, and tests that help define manufacturing parameters and formulation requirements. In this presentation, we outline the typical test plans that we have developed and run for clients to develop new medical devices.
