Lucideon will host a webinar titled Cleaning Validation of Reusable Medical Devices on June 9 at 10 a.m. (EST).
Medical devices need to be cleaned thoroughly and effectively to ensure their safety in use. Reusable devices (such as surgical tools) require reprocessing (cleaning and disinfection/sterilization) between each use. To ensure the effectiveness of such reprocessing methods, manufacturers are required to validate their cleaning and disinfection/sterilization processes as part of the device instructions for use (IFU). The webinar will focus on key factors that should be considered when developing and validating the cleaning process.
“Significant risks of nosocomial infection have driven improved requirements for the reprocessing instructions for reusable medical devices. FDA now requires device manufacturers to validate not only the recommended disinfection and sterilization processes but also the cleaning process,” says Craig Donald, Head of Chemistry, Lucideon.
“We’ll cover the range of considerations required in addition to relevant test methods used to perform appropriate cleaning validations. Each individual device has a unique design and application and both of these factors, amongst others, influence the required cleaning process. This should be of interest to any reusable medical device manufacturer wishing to bring a product to market,” says Donald.

Lucideon and Hong Kong Standards and Testing Centre (STC), a testing, inspection and certification organization based in Hong Kong and China, are also offering a series of seminars on wear testing and medical device testing to orthopaedic implant manufacturers and their supply chain in the Asia region. The seminars will be held on May 24, 2016 at STC’s new facility in Dongguan and on May 26 in Shanghai.
