DDL said today that it now offers medical device testing at its new DDL West laboratory in Irvine, Calif.
The DDL West lab recently moved from Fountain Valley, Calif., to a new facility in Irvine that has double the lab space of the old location.
Previously, testing of catheters, luers, needles, syringes, guidewires and IV infusion only took place at DDL’s headquarters in Eden Prairie, Minn. The DDL West lab only handled package testing (ISO 11607) and ICH stability testing.
“The addition of medical device testing to DDL West reflects our commitment to offering our customers the best testing experience possible,” Corey Hensel, general manager of DDL, said in a news release.
“Having these additional testing services will allow us to provide faster turnaround and reduce development lead time and shorten product time-to-market for our medical device and pharmaceutical customers located in California and the surrounding region,” Hensel said.
The testing being added to DDL’s California lab will use the following standards:
- ISO 80369-6 – Medical connectors for neuraxial applications
- ISO 80369-7 – Medical connectors for intravascular or hypodermic applications
- ISO 10555 – Sterile and single-use catheters
- ISO 9626 – Stainless steel needle tubing
- ISO 7886 – Hypodermic syringe testing
- ISO 8536 – Intravenous infusion set and accessory testing
- ISO 11070 – Introducer and guidewire testing
