Upcoming Webinar

Dear MDCPSS Members,

Please join the MDCPSS for our upcoming webinar: ISO 18562 biocompatibility evaluation of breathing gas pathways in healthcare applications, what does it cover and how to put it to use

Speaker: James Morrison, Senior Consultant at Brandwood Biomedical

Time: Wednesday, November 14th at 11:00 am – noon, eastern standard time

Presentation Abstract: The ISO 18562 series of standards “Biocompatibility evaluation of breathing gas pathways in healthcare applications” was published by ISO in 2017. The series includes four parts, which cover the current thinking on gas pathway requirements. On June 7th 2018, US FDA added the ISO 18562 s tandards to their list of Recognized Consensus Standards, with partial recognition. ISO 18562 standards are now referenced in the newly released ISO 10993– 18:2018, as international acceptance of these standards increases.

Unlike the ISO 10993 series of biocompatibility standards, which is a set of biological test methods, ISO 18562 evaluates biocompatibility using a set of toxicol ogical risk analyses. These toxicological methods are not novel, but their application in this way will greatly expand the knowledge and use of these concepts.

In this webinar, we discuss the four published standards, their applications, and add commentary about putting them into practice in real word situations.

Registration is Required

Kind regards,
Whitney Christian
Vice President-Elect
