Clinician Subjected To Advanced Persistent Threat GettyImages-965096894 Two Key Security Precautions To Protect Your Device — And Your Patients

A physically secure device doesn't ensure data security, just as shoring up data connectivity vulnerabilities doesn't preclude bad actors from physically damaging a device. But, a vulnerability assessment and penetration test can greatly improve your understanding of how safe a device is from a cybersecurity standpoint.

  • The FDA had established a grace period for all medical device manufacturers to ensure that you are incorporating cybersecurity during the design and validation of cyber devices. The end date of the grace period, and the seminal date in medical device cybersecurity enforcement, is Oct. 1, 2023. Are you prepared?

  • Design controls play a crucial role in the medical device development process by providing a systematic approach to manage risks, design requirements, and verification and validation activities. Let's explore the key elements of ISO 13485 that will help you manage the process effectively.

  • The FDA now defines a prefilled syringe, a product that was at one point considered “packaging” for a drug, as a constituent part of a combination product. The ultimate combination of the drug, its package, and its delivery device means that during development and manufacturing you need to combine both drug and device current good manufacturing practices (cGMPs) and quality approaches.


  • High Q Capacitors – Roles And Specifications

    The Q factor measures a capacitor's efficiency in storing and dissipating energy at a specific frequency, with a high Q indicating low energy loss and suitability for low-power, stable applications.
