FDA ASCA Pilot Program (Biocompatibility Testing of Medical Devices)

A2LA is now recognized by the U.S. FDA as one of the first U.S. Accreditation Bodies approved to perform Biocompatibility Testing Laboratory Assessments under the FDA ASCA Pilot Program. This program applies FDA medical device guidance to biocompatibility testing methods. 

For information on A2LA’s FDA recognized status and current scope of ASCA Recognition see ASCA - Recognized Accreditation Bodies. For consensus standards eligible for accreditation under the ASCA pilot Program see The FDA Recognized Consensus Standards Database

A2LA’s FDA ASCA Biocompatibility Testing Laboratory Accreditation Program encompasses laboratories performing both in-vitro and in-vivo biocompatibility testing of medical devices. This program is one half of the FDA ASCA Pilot Program.
