Design verification testing is used to demonstrate and document that medical devices conform with their design requirements.

Smithers experts Chris Berry and Nikki Lucas make this complex topic accessible in a new webinar. In 60 minutes they will provide an overview of design verification testing for the physical and functional characteristics of medical devices.

The webinar will explore key considerations when developing a test programme. Preseters Chris and Nikki will discuss the development of standard and bespoke test methods - and when to use each aproach. They will also talk through test method validation and how the process works.

After the presentation, we will host a live Q&A session
