Genetic Toxicology: ISO 10993-5: Tests for in vitro Cytotoxicity

Similar results occurred with assessment of disposable catheters and medical gloves: Toxicology of engineered lso devices: L cells are treated with extracts of the sample, reagent control, negative control or positive control.

Cytotoxicity of denture base resins: Cytotoxicity is one of the most important methods for biological evaluation as it has a series of advantages, along with the preferred and mandatory items Natl Cancer Inst Monogr.

Although the MTT assay has a sensitive response to the proliferation of medical devices, it has numerous problems in application. Gao et al 21 identified a good correlation between the direct and indirect contact test and a lesser association between the extract test and the other two trials.

Study of the in vitro cytotoxicity testing of medical devices

Motsoane et al 27 used this method to evaluate 11 cytotocicity of biological medical devices, and the results were satisfactory and suggest that the key to ensure the success of this experiment is the proper use of neutral red dye and controlled temperature of agar medium. Extract, direct contact and indirect contact tests including agar overlay assay and filter diffusion.

Thus, determining the appropriate time to evaluate the toxic effect is also essential. In summary, although the MTT assay is more accurate than other detection methods, it is relatively simple, but it is also cumbersome. Agar overlay assay This method is used to evaluate the biological medical devices that can leach toxic substances, and it can be performed on medical devices or extracts. Tests for in vitro Cytotoxicity This cytotoxicity test is performed according to the requirements described in Biological evaluation of medical devices — Part 5: This method is simple, rapid, inexpensive and easy to promote.


For example, certain less dense medical devices, such as condoms, float easily in the medium, and as the cells are difficult to access, this law does not apply for testing The MTT assay is currently the most commonly used method to test cell growth rate and toxicity of the culture. With the continuous development of science and technology, a new medical device must undergo biocompatibility tests of cytotoxicity, sensitization, intradermal irritation, acute systemic toxicity and a series of tests prior to entering a clinical environment to ensure safe and effective use for humans.

Part 5 of the biological evaluation of medical devices in ISO is as follows: In recent years, the evaluation methods have been developed from the whole animal and cellular level to the molecular level using molecular biology techniques, such as the activation of proto-oncogenes and tumor-suppressor gene inactivation studies.

In Chinese [ PubMed ]. Cytotoxicity of an ultrasound-coupling agent showed that the same method of extraction leads to different results as the cell densities were not the same; this was not the case with the indirect method. Elution Method ISO In vitro cytotoxicity assays: Three types of cytotoxicity test are stated in ISO The xCELLigence real-time cell analysis system RTCA is an impedance detection sensor system, and through a special process, the microelectronic sensor chip integrated into the bottom of the cell detection plate allows for a real-time, dynamic, quantitative assessment of tracking changes in cell morphology, cell proliferation and differentiation.

Cultures are observed under microscopy and graded for reactivity using a 0 to 4 scale. Direct contact method The direct contact method yields direct contact of the solid medical devices with cultured mammalian cells in vitro.

However, there are no uniform cytotoxicity test methods, and all these existing methods have particular problems. There are numerous steps in the course of the MTT assay, and it is time-consuming, repetitive and has a slightly poor outcome.

Traditional cytotoxicity tests use artificial methods, such as measuring platelets to count the number of surviving cells, which can be affected by humans and environmental factors, leading to errors and a long test cycle.


Finally, the single-cell membrane gel is separated and reversed to expose the membrane upwards. The direct contact assay is the most sensitive for testing the cytotoxicity of the medical devices; the medical devices can be measured even with weak cytotoxicity As these devices have direct contact with the tissues and cells of the body, they not only require good physical and chemical properties, but must also have good biocompatibility 7.

This method is used to evaluate the biological medical devices that can leach toxic substances, and it can be performed on medical devices or extracts.

The xCELLigence system cttotoxicity real-time and label-free monitoring of cell viability. The main principle is as follows: The agar overlay assay is suitable for the medical devices that have large toxicity and bulk filtering 19 and the molecular filtration method is suitable for the biocompatibility evaluation of the toxic components of small molecular weight medical devices Due to the diversity of medical devices, the variability of the environment of the body and the complexity of the interaction between the body and medical devices, a uniform evaluation method or cytotoxicity test evaluation system has not been established thus far.

The cytotoxicity test is one of the biological evaluation and screening tests that use tissue cells in vitro to observe the cell growth, reproduction and morphological effects by medical devices.

This substance is soluble in dimethyl sulfoxide and other organic solvents, but is insoluble in water.
