Using “qualified” materials is one of the central tenets of building safe medical devices. Toxikon provides testing services to qualify the materials used to manufacture life science products and their packaging to help demonstrate safety.
We offer a combination of analytical, in-vivo, & in-vitro services to comprehensively evaluate your materials to a variety of standards including, USP, EP, or Class I-VI standards.
With experience characterizing raw materials, conducting material comparisons, assessing cytotoxicity, and determining biological reactivity, Toxikon can assess your material from start to finish.
