Choosing a Medical Device Components Manufacturer

As we know, the manufacturing of all classes of medical devices takes a significant amount of stringent effort, quality control, expertise, and care. That’s why at Aztalan Engineering, we spend the majority of our time making sure that you receive the exact medical device components and accessories that you need for your medical device; quality and all.

Medical Device Components

The manufacturing of medical device components and accessories is heavily regulated by the FDA. This means there are set standards that all manufacturing companies must strictly follow in creating any medical device components and parts.

Through a classification system, the FDA determines the kind of manufacturing, labeling and packing that a medical device must have in order to be deemed acceptable or safe enough for use. These classifications also apply to medical device components and/or medical device accessories. There are 3 FDA regulatory classifications of medical devices: Class I, Class II and Class III.

Classes

You may be asking the question: What do these classifications of medical devices have to do with choosing a medical device component manufacturing company? The answer is simple: everything. Choosing a manufacturing company that fully understands and stays up-to-date on these classifications and their impact on the quality of their medical devices is of the utmost importance.

At Aztalan Engineering, we know that Class I Medical Devices have the least regulatory control due to the fact that these devices generally have a history of safe use. Moreover, what this classification means for your potential medical device component is that its design and manufacturing need to be more simplistic, in accordance with good manufacturing practices.

With Class II (general control plus special control) and Class III (general and special control plus premarket notification) medical devices and their components, there are more detailed instructions or regulatory controls that must be abided by during the manufacturing process. Thanks to our extensive experience, we can guarantee to manufacture products that comply with regulations and have the highest quality in the market.
