NORTHWOOD, Ohio, Jan. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NAMSA, the world's leading medical device research organization, is sponsoring a comprehensive symposium based on the definitive new book, "Biocompatibility and Performance of Medical Devices," assembled by ANSM expert Dr. Jean-Pierre Boutrand, in London, England, February 12-14. This one-of-a-kind event offers attendees crucial insights on medical device testing.
The two-day symposium is a unique gathering of international thought leaders representing a diverse mix of professionals in research and development, quality assurance, regulatory affairs and product engineering, and is designed for professionals in these and other device-related positions.
"Implant and device manufacturers are increasingly facing the challenge of proving their products are safe, biocompatible and will perform as expected," said Dr. Boutrand. "This event will prove an essential guide to the performance analysis of medical devices and will feature expertise for every medical specialty – from cardiology to bone healing, tissue engineering to combined products."
Attendees will hear from multiple members of the international team who co-authored the book on critical topics such as biocompatibility evaluation and overcoming negative test results in manufacture. Event speakers include:
