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. Upgrade the drive rollers on your IDTE Proximal roller system to the stainless steel and eliminate product “slipping” for your coated catheter testing. The knurled stainless steel drive rollers ensure the drive rollers keep a strong grip on your product even when wet.
