To achieve that, we set the highest possible standards for ourselves and test your product according to established as well as innovative methods. We develop tailored solutions, cutting-edge test procedures and ensure that your testing needs are met optimally.
EndoLab is one of the biggest and most established testing laboratories worldwide with more than 25 years of experience. As a key partner of the industry, we are connected to authorities and private companies alike. By contributing to new testing standards, we shape the industry’s future and ensure we are always in tune with the latest developments.
In cooperation with leading national and international universities we conduct research to develop state-of-the-art testing procedures. Our in-house R&D department is set up to flexibly react to your testing needs and help you design a unique testing protocol for your device.
We are constantly growing. Our 30+ experts are highly qualified and experienced, together we have unrivalled experience in medical device safety. Our team is highly interdisciplinary, allowing us to ground our work on insights from mechanical and biomedical engineering, pharmacology, and medicine. Improving patients’ lives is what keeps us going and encourages us to improve every day.
We are looking forward to hearing about your testing needs and to working with you.
The scope of available implant tests is divided into anatomically orientated groups of application. The hip implant section includes wear tests using a ISO hip joint simulator and multiple ISO and ASTM tests to determine the fatigue properties of stemmed femoral components, acetabular cups and balls. Screening tests for new implant materials are also available.
The knee implant section also includes the determination of wear performance in a ISO knee joint simulator. There are multiple tests for research and development of new knee implants available. Finite Element Analysis will be an sufficient tool regarding the complex geometry of knee implants. Upcoming ISO regulations can be followed as well as custom test procedures for individual needs.
The spine implant section covers the demands of a fast growing medical market by new designed test procedures. ASTM tests as well as upcoming ISO regulations can be followed. Quasistatic mechanical properties as well as fatigue and wear properties can be determined. The complex design of spinal implants may require analysis and design of individual tests.
The growing market of vascular implants is accompanied by multiple international accepted tests performed by EndoLab® GmbH. The field of stent testing is an ideal example for the synergy effects of FEM analysis and mechanical tests offered by our laboratories. Fatigue properties of stents can be determined by our high speed equipment using laser controlled PID measurement. Radial force tests as well as dilatation tests are modules of a complete test procedure required for certification.
