Device Testing Equipment
The interventional device testing equipment (IDTE) from MSI quantitatively tests, compares and records performance features of interventional devices. This equipment is ideal for testing catheters, guidewires, stent delivery systems, colonoscopes, endoscopes, and scope tools. IDTE’s PC controls and versatile test configurations allow for simple and repeatable test setups and instantaneous feedback on device design changes, there by reducing design timelines. Test results can be used for regulatory submissions, competitive product testing and R&D device evaluation.
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 25539-1:2003(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.
