Charles River supports developers and manufacturers of medical devices from the "proof of concept" stage to pivotal safety and efficacy evaluations. We offer an integrated approach to medical device studies with a commitment to scientific excellence, an appreciation for client-specific issues, and an understanding of regulatory considerations.
Our technicians and pathologists can prepare and evaluate all categories of devices: external devices (intact as well as breached or compromised surfaces), external communicating devices (intact natural channels, plus indirect and direct blood paths), and internal devices (bone, tissue and fluid, and blood). Enhanced by our expertise in anatomical and clinical pathology and our state-of-the-art laboratories, Charles River has become the leader in providing support to device manufacturers.
