ISO 10993-17: Standardizing Your Toxicological Risk Assessment (TRA)

Toxicological risk assessments are conducted to identify any potential risk to patients from the chemical constituents of the product.

It is important to note that finding “equivocal” results during the TRA is very common, especially in exhaustive extractions. These are findings for which toxicologists cannot deem the level of risk acceptable given the available information. Equivocal results often necessitate additional risk mitigation strategies to support safety. To learn more about mitigating risk in your medical device, Ask One Of Our Experts
