Medical equipment is a vital part of any hospital or clinic. It is used to diagnose and treat patients, so the equipment must work correctly. That’s why medical equipment manufacturers often have their equipment tested by third-party laboratories.
What should I know about this?
Medical equipment testing is performed to ensure the safety and effectiveness of medical devices. During the testing process, medical equipment is put through various tests to determine how it will perform in real-world settings. This may include evaluating the accuracy and repeatability of instruments, checking for functionality under different operating conditions, and assessing whether the equipment can withstand typical use over time.
Different types of equipment may be tested, including diagnostic imaging devices, surgical tools, lab analyzers, and infusion pumps. Some labs specialize in specific areas of medical equipment testing, such as mechanical fatigue or biocompatibility.
