Customized Testing Programs

Customized testing programs for medical product safety and efficacy

With the proliferation of advanced medical devices, drug delivery systems, reusable medical devices, and combination products that include devices with pharmaceuticals or biologics, we offer a multidisciplinary approach to help you develop a customized testing methodology that mitigates risk while proving safety and efficacy.

It is important to partner with the right laboratory who will guide you from preclinical testing, through clinical trials, and ultimately to market. Custom preclinical testing helps ensure that your product will pass regulatory approval easily: reducing your time-to-market, maximizing your investment, and paving the way to successful commercialization.

With a strong foundation in toxicology and biocompatibility, our customized testing programs have included:

  • IND / NDA enabling studies
  • NCE characterization
  • ocular device and drug product development
  • proof of concept studies
  • surgical efficacy studies
  • comprehensive biocompatibility analysis
  • sterilization support
  • reusable medical device cleaning validation
  • combination product evaluations
  • synthesis and formulation studies

With our breadth and depth of knowledge and experience in all facets of biocompatibility, analytical chemistry, and microbiology, Toxikon is prepared to design custom testing programs that will efficiently and effectively position your medical products for regulatory clearance.
