August 6│ Dr. Paul Liu, General Manager of Harborside, will give a webinar on the CMDHRA platform

At the invitation of China Association for Medical Devices Industry Human Resource Association (CMDHRA), Dr. Paul Liu, General Manager of Harborside (Tripod Group), will give a lecture on themes of medical device pre-clinical evaluations and studies on August 6.


Main content of this course:

Testing and verification of medical devices, including bench performance testing and animal tests, are important evaluation method throughout the product development cycle, from the determination of early concept, customer requirements and design & manufacturing specifications to the verification/qualification prior to the final marketing release(or clinical trial permission); high-quality animal study helps device manufacturer to identify potential risks early and make modifications and improvements timely at the feasibility study stage, and enable manufacturer to make its products closer to the requirements of the applicable guidelines issued by regulatory authorities at the verification stage for registration submission. Moreover, the truthful, reliable and traceable test data and results (in line with data integrity requirements) from high-quality animal studies also lower the manufacturer’s exposure to subsequent risks.
