Medical device testing is a significant part of a present-day healthcare system established to support preclinical product safety. In recent years, the quality of medical device testing methods has been strictly regulated by government agencies through different protocols and guidelines such as ISO-10993 and ISO-14971. A vital part of the biological evaluation of medical devices is their chemical characterization by mass spectrometric analysis. We present our comprehensive chemical characterization platform consisting of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) analysis by headspace gas chromatography mass spectrometry (HS-GC-MS), semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs) analysis by gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC-MS), non-volatile organic compounds (NVOCs) analysis by UHPLC-HRMS, and metals analysis by ICP-MS with the case study of a chemical profiling of a metallic implantable device.
