Informed materials decisions for medical devices


Searching for medical materials, their biological response, and their applications takes valuable time. How much quicker would it be with access to an encyclopedic resource on medical materials and their applications? In this live web seminar, we’ll show you how the latest updates to the ASM Medical Materials Database save time and reduce risk throughout the product lifecycle.

What you will learn

  • Find critical information quickly, including materials for an application, predicate device data, and recalls information
  • Reduce time-to-market with quick access to regulatory information, such as 510k and PMA documents
  • Identify the types of materials used in FDA-approved devices, produced using additive manufacturing
  • Gain strategic advantage by identifying the materials used in competitor products
  • See the latest updates to the ASM Medical Materials Database.

Who should take part?

  • Engineers and scientists involved in materials selection, and understanding materials information for medical device approvals
  • Regulatory scientists needing access to referenced information about materials, predicate devices, and recalls data.

About the presenter

Dr. Sarah Egan Dr. Sarah Egan has led projects at Granta Design that have developed a series of innovative knowledge resources for medical device materials and, more recently, for human biological materials. Dr. Egan's background in materials engineering for medical applications includes a PhD in Biomaterials from the University of Cambridge and an MEng in Materials Engineering in Medicine from Queen Mary College, University of London. As Medical Devices Product Manager at Granta she currently specializes in the compilation and application of materials data, the development and implementation of software for materials selection, and systems to enable materials information management in the medical device industry.
