This three day webinar will incorporate the new US FDA guidance on biocompatibility into the three main steps in developing a Biological Safety Evaluation (BSE): Biological Evaluation Plan (BEP), Testing Options, and Biological Evaluation Report (BER). Composed of three one-hour presentations followed by Q&A sessions, the webinar will cover each step in developing a BSE in detail. This webinar will provide insight into regulatory expectations when it comes to evaluating device safety.
The presenters for this three day webinar provide a combined 50 years of experience in their field of expertise. Thor Rollins is a leading biocompatibility expert and has worked closely with medical device companies and the FDA for over 15 years. Dr. Sarah Campbell is a board certified Toxicologist with an extensive 17 year background in practicing and using analytical chemistry for toxicological evaluation. This combination of expertise is important to in order to handle the important aspects of material/chemical characterization and toxicological risk assessment. Audrey Turley has 20 years of experience working in research, laboratory, and test design functions in the medical device industry.
Day 2: Justifying out of testing using chemical characterization vs performing full biocompatibility testing. The first important step in determining the risk of a medical device to a patient is to know and understand your materials and processes. This webinar will go over the steps in evaluating device materials and an extractable/leachable chemical testing needed to demonstrate biocompatibility.
