Residue Analysis - Orthopaedic Implants
Residue contamination on single use and reusable orthopaedic implants can render them unfit for purpose. If you are seeing contamination following your cleaning processes then Lucideon will help identify the source and resolve the issue.
We are more than just a test house. We don't just test your samples, we have the expertise to analyze your cleaning processes at every stage to identify the cause of contamination and will then work with you to make the necessary changes to your process to ensure it doesn't occur in the future.
Detergents, oils, lubricants and surfactants can remain on the surface of your medical implants, and potentially lead to failures and complications in subsequent processing and, importantly, in use.
We can identify residues that can be extracted from your medical implants and then develop a cleaning procedure that limits them to acceptable levels. Our team of dedicated analytical scientists can ensure the cleanliness of your implant using a range of techniques, including LCMS and ICP-MS - both great for analyzing small samples with low limits.
