Successful FDA 510(k) submissions are critical to your market success. Incomplete or inaccurate submissions can lead to failure and may delay your product launch.

510(k) or Premarket Notification (PMN) sections of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act require manufacturers to notify the FDA of their intent to market a new medical device 90 days before market release. Specifically, medical device manufacturers must submit their 510(k) or PMN if they intend to introduce a device into commercial distribution for the first time or if they are reintroducing a device with significant changes that could affect its safety. Such changes can include modifications to design, material, chemical composition, energy source, manufacturing process or intended use.

Our 510(k) testing services

Element offers an extensive range of testing services to help you obtain market clearance, from chemical and mechanical testing to pharmaceutical testing for combination devices. 

Working closely with your regulatory team, we help you select appropriate tests for your 510(k) submission. In addition to commonly used standards, our Engaged Experts can formulate non-standard test protocols for evaluating specific functional aspects of devices for which there are no standardized tests.
