Description / Abstract:

This practice is a nonspecific, acute toxicity test used to help determine the biocompatibility of materials used in medical devices.

The liquids injected into the rabbits are those obtained by Practice F619 where the extraction vehicles are saline, vegetable oil, or other liquids simulating human body fluids.

This practice is one of several developed for the assessment of the biocompatibility of materials. Practice F748 may provide guidance for the selection of appropriate methods for testing materials for a specific application.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
