The IDTE1000 (shown with optional water bath) track testing equipment is designed to be integrated with any benchtop testing model to comparatively and quantitatively test the performance features of interventional devices including: catheters, guidewires, stent delivery systems, colonoscopes, endoscopes and scope tools. The system features a roller system to automatically advance your device through a test path and accurately measure the advance and retraction forces. The small, portable unit features several adapters to mount the roller system to the top of a table, side of a bench or other surfaces near your test model. An optional distal load cell allows for additional push and tip testing capabilities. The IDTE was designed with several international testing standards in mind. These include: ASTM F2394-07 for preconditioning of the stent on the deployment system prior to retention testing, ISO Standard 255391:2003(E) Titled “Cardiovascular Implants – Endovascular Devices” and ISO/TS15539:2000(E) Titled “Cardiovascular Implants Endovascular Prostheses”. While still adhering to published guidance standards, the IDTE allows users to distinguish their products from competitors by creating and testing in extremely challenging conditions.
Standard test methods include:
