About Us


Medical Device Testing Services is A2LA Accredited (Testing Cert#2783.01). In order to obtain this accreditation, A2LA performs a thorough, bi-annual audit of our laboratory and testing services to the requirements of ISO 17025. ISO 17025 accreditation is not the same as ISO 17025 compliance, which indicates only that a laboratory claims to be in compliance with the ISO 17025 requirements and is not obligated to undergo a regulatory audit.

ISO 17025 accreditation is also more demanding than Good Lab Practice (GLP). Although there are similarities in general quality procedures, the practices required by an ISO 17025 accreditation are more demanding than GLP, and provide greater security in accuracy of data and results.

In addition to our accredited tests, MDT performs a wide range of custom tests. These tests include tension/compression, torsion/rotation, and bending. All tests are created using the same Quality Management system. We maintain a full-time quality manager on staff. We welcome questions or input with respect to our quality policy and will provide associated documentation upon request. MDT customers are invited to complete our customer survey to provide feedback on our services.
