Material Testing

Material Testing

In the race to develop new products, or to conduct in-process testing during manufacturing, there is no substitute for having an in-house capability for critical material testing. At US BioDesign, we conduct material testing using industry-standard ASTM test methods. Alternatively, we have a network of qualified partner companies for specialized testing that we outsource.

Physical property testing capabilities include:

  • ASTM D3786 and ASTM D3787 Fabric Burst Testing
  • ASTM D5034 Breaking strength and elongation of fabrics
  • ASTM D1777 Thickness of textile materials
  • ASTM D3822 Tensile properties of fibers
  • USP Suture diameter and tensile testing
  • Fabric construction analysis (Braided, knitted, woven)
  • Water permeability
  • Pore size measurement
  • Digital photo-microscopy
  • SEM analysis
  • DSC testing for active Af
  • Biocompatibility testing
