Nelson Labs to Address Cleaning Validations at BIOMEDevice Show

Nelson Laboratories Michael Neilson, BS, RM(NRCM), will present three topics to medical device manufacturers attending the 2011 BIOMEDevice Exposition and Conference in San Jose, Dec. 6-7, 2011 at exhibit booth #1120. Topics will include test trends for hemocompatibility, how to avoid contamination for newly manufactured devices and recent trends from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regarding reusable device cleaning validations.

Neilson will be at the Innovation Briefs Theater, exhibit booth #801, to conduct a Cleaning Evaluation Validations and Recent FDA Trends presentation on December 7 at 12:30 p.m.

Each time Nelson Laboratories presents a topic, it is with the goal that manufacturers will be able to save time and money, says Jeffery R. Nelson, president and CEO of Nelson Laboratories. It is imperative manufacturers understand the reusable device validation process in order to prevent delays with their FDA submissions and ensuring timely release of new products.

Neilson is Nelson Labs' hospital reprocessing section leader,  who specializes in cleaning, disinfection and sterilization of reusable medical devices. As section leader, he is responsible for managing personnel, resources and business strategies for reprocessing validations that are performed at Nelson Labs.
