Best practice in applying materials data and predicate device information in healthcare

Case study from a regulatory sciences perspective

Guest speaker: David Chadwick from

Join us on Wednesday, November 16 to see a case study on how Cook Medical is using the ASM Medical Materials™ database, a vital resource for healthcare companies that combines engineering material properties and biomedical response data with medical device application information.

At this no-cost webinar you will:

  • Find out about the ASM Medical Materials database, an information resource jointly developed with ASM International, covering hundreds of materials, coatings, and drugs from over 1,000 providers
  • Learn from from medical device company Cook Medical about how they use the database in product development for:
    • Searching materials
    • Finding 510k documents
    • Finding competitor products
    • Finding materials used in competitor products
  • Hear about the latest upgrades and enhancements to the database, including vastly expanded data on medical device recalls and new querying tools, helping healthcare companies to make better-informed decisions
  • See how to combine a materials selection process using CES Selector with the database and other regulatory or proprietary data
  • Understand how to ensure that everyone in the medical device product lifecycle, from initial design to regulation, has access to the materials data they need.

Supporting better healthcare decisions

Further information

The ASM Medical Materials data module (containing Cardiovascular, Orthopaedic, Neurological, and Surgical Materials) is the result of a collaboration between Granta and ASM International, the world's largest professional society for materials engineers. It is available via online subscription or for use within the GRANTA MI materials information management software. With regular comprehensive updates, this data module is ideal for in-depth research into materials options, combining engineering materials properties and biomedical response data with application information.
