An important quality issue of medical devices having direct or indirect contact with the body tissue is the biocompatibility of the product. 
According to the statutory ISO 10993-1 the biocompatibility of these products has to be tested before they are admitted to the market (CE-certification). 
Testing for cytotoxicity is one of the most important test methods in the biological evaluation of medical devices. 
The objective of this assessment is the safety of the medical device with regard to its use in or on humans. In this webinar you will learn more about the test methods and their Limitations.
