Healthcare technology and medical devices are constantly evolving to improve accuracy, patient safety and patient wellness. This rapid progress also leaves these devices increasingly susceptible to quality, safety and cybersecurity issues. We offer safety and compliance testing and training to take on these, and many other issues facing the healthcare device industry.

Safety testing

Our expert engineers prioritize wellness and safety through our testing services. We offer total product lifecycle testing, risk management evaluations, and quality management support for healthcare devices. These tests will examine products and facilities for:

  • Electrical safety
  • Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC)
  • Biological evaluation, Microbiological tests, and sterilization services
  • Cybersecurity
  • Interoperability

In addition, we offers safety management software and a training program (PURE) to help operations better manage and understand products safety requirements.

Regulatory compliance

Healthcare device regulatory compliance can be extremely difficult to navigate. We work with global manufacturers, developers and end users, from design through market release, to keep your products compliant. Our worldwide labs provide localized testing services to cover international standards though the US, EU, Brazil, Japan, China, Australia, and many other regions. These standards include:

  • UL 2900 cybersecurity
  • IEC 61010
  • IEC/ AAMI 60601
  • ISO 14971


Our global reach and local presence allow us to deliver innovative, customized solutions to streamline testing and simplify the certification process.

We can tailor the testing to your own specifications, as well as offer expert advice to help ensure the most efficient use of your time and budget. Leveraging our expertise during the development process can help you avoid costly errors in the design phase and speed time-to-market.
