We share a proud history with those in the medical device industry as we have tested many of the innovative medical products on the market today to ensure they perform safely and effectively. With the enactment of the U.S. Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) of 1938, the U.S. government began their oversight of medical devices. Subsequently, U.S. Congress chartered the Cooper Committee to take inventory of all medical devices currently in use. Following that review, the 1976 Medical Device Amendments were passed giving authority to the U.S. FDA to regulate medical devices. This dramatically altered the medical device industry and ultimately gave rise to Nelson Laboratories.
We are over 700 scientists, technicians, and service specialists diligently performing more than 400 rigorous tests in 11 global laboratory locations. With decades of foremost expertise, we stand behind the quality of our results and the strength of our customer partnerships.
