Testing laboratory biology

In vitro cytotoxicity tests according to the "biological evaluation of medical devices" as well as microbiological tests such as e.g. biocontamination control, determination of bioburden and various tests for antibacterial effects.

In addition, the biological test laboratory offers the testing of textiles that are mainly worn close to the skin for body compatibility in accordance with the criteria of the test seal "MEDICALLY TESTED - TESTED FOR TOXINS" of the Fördergemeinschaft Körperverträgliche Textilien e. V. (FKT). We can also advise you in the production of body-compatible textiles.
