Electrochemical corrosion testing helps prevent harmful interactions between metallic medical devices and biological processes by assessing corrosion susceptibility using cyclic potentiodynamic polarization per ASTM F2129.
The human body is a corrosive environment for any metallic implantable device. In addition to causing device failure, chemical interactions between the body and a device can have harmful biological consequences. Element performs electrochemical corrosion testing per ASTM F2129 to ensure that medical devices are safe, and provided the intended benefits to the patient.
Electrochemical Corrosion Prevention
A device’s susceptibility to corrosion is directly affected by the materials involved, and the fabrication process used, among other factors. Our electrochemical corrosion testing services use the cyclic potentiodynamic polarization methods outlined in ASTM F2129 to simulate the biological environment, helping to detect and address issues in the lab before they become failures in the body.
Our experts have experience testing a variety of medical devices for electrochemical corrosion, and we provide support for every stage of testing. We are dedicated to helping make your project a success, from product design to final regulatory submission. As a trusted partner for medical device testing, you can be confident that the results you receive from Element are accurate, reliable and right the first time.
