Animal Tissue Use in Medical Devices: Understand Regulation Changes and Implement Compliant Systems

Implementing compliant systems for medical devices with animal tissue requires multiple control layers, typically using standards in the ISO 22442 family — some of which are under revision. Add in the recent FDA-CDRH guidance, the EU-MDD and the EU-MDR and you have an incredibly complex, interlocking and changing defense system for animal tissue use. This webinar will cover all the new information you need to implement compliant systems that protect patient and user health.
