From precision tools that help diagnose patient conditions to implantables that improve their quality of life, medical devices play a vital role in everyday life
Understand the characteristics of the materials your medical devices are made of with reliable testing and engineering services from SGS MSi.
SGS MSi determines the chemical, mechanical, and metallurgical characteristics of materials using destructive examination methods. The clients we serve ultimately utilize the data obtained to ensure compliance. An A2LA and ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratory, our capabilities include:
- Specification Conformance
- Material Validation
- Supplier Qualification
- Raw Material Testing
- Root Cause Analysis
- EDM assessment
- Laser-Etch evaluation
Chemical, mechanical, and metallurgical testing help product manufacturers and end users confirm the performance capabilities and establish operating ranges of materials manufactured into medical devices. With more than three decades of experience, our team of engineers, scientists, and technicians is well positioned to examine and validate your specimens. Common tests we perform for this industry include:
- Microstructure Analysis
- Inclusion Rating
- Grain Size
- Susceptibility to intergranular attack
We analyze a wide array of materials destined for use as medical devices. Some of them include:
- Stainless steel
The equipment at our laboratory in Melrose Park, IL is calibrated regularly to certify accuracy. Calibration records are available upon request.
We provide a detailed report listing test type, parameters, and results obtained when analyzing materials. The language we use is clear and easy to understand. All engineering reportsare presented with a summary conclusion of our findings, any criterion supporting those results and, if appropriate, insights into possible failure avoidance.
Ensure materials are suitable for their intended use with reliable analyzing and certifying services from SGS MSi. With an unwavering commitment to quality, we’re your materials testing provider.
