Re: USP class VI versus ISO 10993
I do not know USP class VI, and know just the necessary of ISO 10993, but reading a little on the net about USP class VI it seems it´s comprised of two specific tests (systemic injection and intracutaneous) made on animals. Well, ISO 10993 is a series of standards which describes a lot of tests (there´s 19 standards in the series and the fisrt is the general one, so it seems to exist at least some 18 different tests, i am not sure of this). The tests to be made depends on some characteristics of the product being tested, for exemple contact time. Also, there´s some tests done on animals, if i remember corrrectly, but most of them are not. Well, that´s what i can think of in a hurry. Cheers.
