Description of Service

We perform all aspects of medical testing with a focus on IEC 60601 Series, Electrical Medical Equipment and IEC 61010 Series, Electrical Equipment for Measurement, Control, and Laboratory Use.

We are experienced in performing partial or limited testing for new prototypes, where verification testing of initial design options can assist in early design decisions. We can perform testing to appropriate safety and performance consensus standards, or we can help you tailor a test procedure and test form for your specialized verification needs.
