After two years of virtual events, we are pleased to announce that we can finally meet you in person again! We’d like to welcome you to our Open House event this year at our Center of Excellence in Leuven on Wednesday, April 26th. This year’s Open House will zoom in on the latest changes to the ISO 10993-18 standard and how it is a part of the overall evaluation of biocompatibility for medical devices. We will explore theory and practical examples, and you’ll also have an opportunity to take a tour of our facilities.

Partnering with us for the Open House Limulus Bio will host a toxicology training (ISO 10993-17) on day two (fee-based course).

Be sure to save Wednesday April 26 and Thursday April 27 in your agendas, and let’s see if there’s “chemistry” between us!

The agenda spans two days and covers many unique and timely subjects.
This year’s keynote speakers are Dr Dennis Jenke (Principal Consultant Nelson Labs), Dr Sherry Parker and many others to be announced very soon.
