Medical Device Testing
Medical package testing services offered at Micom Laboratories. We offer medical package testing for a range of materials, products and sub assemblies. Whether it is for climatic chamber testing, UV testing, package testing or material testing, our experts will be happy to help you put together a meaningful test plan that will address your needs, give you real answers and provide actionable insights.
Micom Laboratories is also the only material testing lab accredited by the World Health Organization for cold chain testing.
Micom offers a wide variety of mechanical and physico-chemical material testing to the medical industry according to various standards (ASTM, ISO, MIL-STD, ISTA, ANSI, CSA & others). Our specialists can also provide you with custom test services focused on your specific needs.
Our facilities allow us to test a wide range of raw materials and finished products. Whether you need temperature cycling, thermal shock testing, corrosion testing, composite materials testing or accelerated aging, Micom’s staff is available to support your technical requirements.
Our medical package testing facility is also equipped to test prototypes and sub assemblies to simulate intensive use of products and materials either to validate your design or investigate a field failure.
