Instron announced that it plans to host a biomedical open house event on Sept. 20 at its Norwood, Mass. headquarters.
The open house event will showcase the company’s advances in static, dynamic and impact testing for the biomedical field. It will include live demonstrations on how to improve efficiency in the lab, ways to expand capabilities and how to deliver more accurate and reliable test results.
“This is a unique opportunity for materials testing professionals to get a hands-on look at the latest technology for testing medical devices, pharmaceutical products, biomaterials and medical packaging,” Elayne Gordon, biomedical market manager at Instron, said. “It will also be a great chance to learn about optimizing test methods and test setup, spend time understand calibration and verification certificate and also an opportunity to simply meet other users and share experiences.”
Instron’s open house will be a one day event with limited seating.

Some of the demonstrations will shows the ways to test a device, packaging or biomaterial. The presentations will highlight recent developments in Bluehill Universal materials testing software and will explain the different enhanced verification and calibration certificates.
Instron’s sister company North Star Imaging will also be at the biomedical open house. North Star manufactures 2D digital industrial X-ray and 3D Computed Tomography equipment and imaging software. Its presentation will show how X-Ray and CT scanning technology is used in the biomedical industry for internal measurements, 3D CAD comparisons, defect, void and other porosity analysis, as well as surface reconstructions for reverse engineering, finite element analysis and failure analysis.
