Testing Services for the Medical Device Market
Your product capability and reliability are literally the lifeblood of your company.
Your products must perform exactly as the customer expects, every time. DTB can
help. We can provide support from conceptualization through
prototype and into production.
- Electrostatic discharge (ESD)
- Radiated RF electromagnetic energy
- Conducted RF electromagnetic energy
- Magnetic fields
- Electrical fast transients and bursts
- Voltage dips
- Short interruptions
- Voltage variations on power supply input lines
- Drop test
ENGINEERING and TESTING
Our engineering services group will assist you with “designing in” reliability and
robustness by tailoring a unique test protocol to evaluate potential failure modes.
For electronic equipment we can also validate
EMI/EMC issues at the prototype stage
before large investments are made on your part. We can also assist with complete
design verification testing after prior R&D gates have been satisfied.
Do you have a portable equipment development program? We specialize in consulting
on “Ruggedized” designs. We can pass your product through a virtual gauntlet of
real world environmental exposure to expose any potential problems before you go
to market. There are no limitations to the type of medical device that we can test,
mechanical or electro-mechanical devices are not a problem for us.
LARGE FIXED EQUIPMENT/SYSTEMS
DTB also services products that are large scale and primarily designed into a fixed
location. Your systems still need to be evaluated for their intended environment
. We can help with two different approaches.
First, our massive facility is designed
to accommodate large scale projects, we own serveral oversized environmental chambers, and we
can also consult on validation of sub-system level testing.
Second, let us come
to you. We routinely visit customer locations with portable test equipment for EMI/EMC
evaluations, instrumentation work, and even on-site special purpose
