Evaluation of Medical Equipment/Implant Materials

Outline of Evaluation of Medical Equipment/Implant Materials

  • JFE-TEC can provide a wide range of services, from evaluation tests for medical equipment, beginning with implant materials, to investigation of the causes of damage and defects and mechanical safety testing required for pharmaceutical applications.

    • Tests for approval applications (pharmaceutical applications) for medical equipment
    • Evaluation tests of orthopedic implants in accordance with ASTM, ISO and JIS standards.
    • Various types of evaluation tests for dental implants
  • The first Japanese laboratory of ISO 17025 accreditation. (mechanical testing)

    Our Medical Device Testing Center has been accredited as an ISO17025 testing laboratory in the field of evaluation of implant materials.

    • We are the first certified domestic testing laboratory for medical devices (mechanical testing).
