How Chemical Characterization Can Supplement and Support Biocompatibility Testing

Download this whitepaper to examine the various ways in which chemical characterization can augment and refine the biocompatibility testing process.

Using analytical chemistry and data from the compound libraries to assess the finished device can yield more specific data about these extractable compounds than biocompatibility testing. The known properties of the compounds can then be used to create a toxicological risk or safety assessment based on the predicted biological response to the compounds.
