Regulatory compliance and market access

A medical device is an instrument, apparatus, device, machine, appliance, implant, reagent for in vitro use, software, material, or similar or related item intended by the manufacturer to be used alone or in combination for a medical purpose.
What are IVD (in vitro diagnostic) products?
Diagnosis is the first step to effective treatment and the first protection against the spread of many diseases. In vitro diagnostics are clinical tests that analyze samples taken from the human body. They help cure, treat or prevent diseases.
These tests include laboratory-based tests, in which samples are sent to a central laboratory for analysis, point-of-care tests, which can be performed near or at the site of patient care, and tests that consumers can use at home.
Ellecom works with an experienced team dedicated to compliance and regulatory issues in the MDR market and the IVD market, and always keeps abreast of new trends and requirements in the medical device and IVD market.
The changing regulatory framework created by the implementation of the EU Medical Devices Regulation (2017/745) and the EU In Vitro Medical Devices Regulation (2017/746) is impacting how medical devices and IVDs are reclassified and, if necessary, upscaled.
Companies with knowledge and experience of regulatory issues will find it easier to ensure a smooth transition.
Over the years, Ellecom has established sustainable business relationships with various competent authorities, notified bodies, clinical laboratories and think tanks. The company is also working on a dynamic, evolving and efficient post-market surveillance system. The knowledge and network-based methodology provide Ellecom with a competitive advantage in the market and the ability to serve the price-sensitive medical device and IVD market.
