All of your materials data in one, searchable, resource—save time finding data
Avoid loss of project data and duplication of tests,
re-use corporate materials knowledge
Traceability—ensure that any information can be traced back to original data sources, aiding design reviews and regulatory submissions
Control—guarantee data security, ensure the right data is delivered to the right people, and manage changing data effectively with version control
Eliminate errors by providing data to designers on their desktop, in the format that they require
Access to unique sources of property and application data for medical device materials
What is the GRANTA MI:Medical Package?
A package of GRANTA MI modules and documentation that provides a solution for the materials data management challenges faced by medical device companies. Integrated in the same system are leading reference data sources for materials of relevance to medical applications.
You can build a single system, configured to your needs, to manage all of your proprietary materials knowledge and data—from testing, QA, research, and beyond. The system fulfils the needs of the whole materials data lifecycle—capturing data and its inter-relationships, analyzing this data, maintaining it, and deploying it for use by designers and engineers. It connects to the engineering desktop via its web browser interface and integration with engineering (CAD and CAE) software.
Software—the core MI:Data Management Package plus supporting documentation and services to aid implementation of the system into medical device organizations:
|MI:Server||This robust, scalable materials database system can be populated with your in-house materials data and with your choice of external reference information.|
|MI:Viewer||The core web browser-based user interface with tools to browse, query, report on, edit, import and export data to engineering software.|
|MI:Toolbox||Windows application supporting higher-intensity import, export, and processing tasks.|
|Supporting documentation||Documentation detailing how the GRANTA MI system is able to meet the requirements of FDA CFR 21 Part 11. Helps you to validate the software for use in your organization.|
|Services||Granta's services organization can help to implement and validate the system for medical device enterprises.|
Data—the following data modules are recommended:
|Medical MaterialUniverse||Comprehensive, generic materials data from Granta, with added properties such as sterilizability, and other specific medical and food grade data|
|Cardiovascular Materials||Information on over 5,300 FDA-approved cardiovascular devices linked to extensive data on 200+ relevant materials, coatings, and related drugs.|
|Orthopaedic Materials||Information on over 7,600 orthopaedic devices, linked to information on 180+ materials, coatings, and drugs.|
|Human Biological Materials||Properties of bone and tissue—for use in device design|
Additional options to consider
MI:Materials Gateway—if you need to access and apply data from within CAD, CAE and other third-party software.
