The Biocompatibility Sensitization test evaluates the potential of a material or product to cause a sensitizing effect or allergenic reaction in a patient over an extended period of exposure. Sensitization or hypersensitivity is tested by exposing an animal’s skin to the material, or taking extracts from the device/material and injecting and/or topically applying them, and looking for adverse reactions. Sensitization reactions are noted by observing redness and swelling as it interacts with the body’s immune system. This test complies with ISO 10993-10 and ISO 10993-12 standards.
