-Additional classes will cover medtech topics for medical device manufacturers-

SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Nelson Laboratories (www.nelsonlabs.com) will conduct two classes for medical device manufacturers at the 2014 MD&M West Conference Feb. 12 beginning at 10:00 a.m. in room #208AB covering the most up-to-date information on material selection, ISO 10993 biocompatibility and reprocessing of reusable devices at the Anaheim Convention Center.

Nelson Laboratories will exhibit in booth 3228.

Additional medtech classes will include industry updates and information on ethylene oxide and radiation sterilization validation, packaging test methods and processing validations for newly manufactured devices.

Thor Rollins, biocompatibility specialist at Nelson Laboratories, will present an overview of changes the FDA made in its draft document regarding the implementation of ISO 10993, and insights into making smarter decisions when choosing materials for medical devices early in the validation process.

"Medical device manufacturers can save a lot of time and cost if they make smarter material selections before design begins," said Rollins. "We'll show you how, and provide the latest updates on what the FDA is thinking regarding ISO 10993 before the changes become an official guidance document."

Emily Mitzel, laboratory manager at Nelson Laboratories, will discuss human factors in reprocessing reusable device validations. She will address three specific residuals and the exact amounts appropriate for cleaning that came out of the AAMI/FDA round table discussion on "How clean is clean?" and many more industry updates on cleaning and sterilization validations for reusable medical devices.
