Standard Practice for Assessment of Hemolytic Properties of Materials
|Publication Date:||15 March 1993|
1.1 This practice provides a protocol for the assessment of hemolytic properties of materials used in the fabrication of medical devices that will contact blood.
1.2 This practice is intended to evaluate the acute in vitro hemolytic properties of materials intended for use in contact with blood.
1.3 This practice consists of two procedural parts. Procedure A describes a test run under static conditions. Procedure B describes a test run under dynamic conditions. One or both of these procedures may be used in complying with this standard.
1.4 This practice is one of several developed for the assessment of the biocompatibility of materials. Practice F 748 may provide guidance for the selection of appropriate methods for testing materials for a specific application.
