Medical Gown Testing
Intertek offers comprehensive gown testing capabilities for manufacturers, distributions and retailers for your non-surgical gowns, surgical gowns, isolation gowns, surgical isolation gowns, procedural gowns, operating room gowns and medical aprons.
Medical gowns of all types are widely used all over the world as hospitals and healthcare institutions continue to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. In the U.S., our capabilities include functional, physical, chemical and penetration resistance testing according to ASTM F2107 and the consensus standard ANSI PB70 recognized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. We can also provide guidance about industry requirements for gown product design, testing, labeling, supply chain, facilities operation, staff training and more.
In the EU market, we can test to EN 13795-1, EN 14126 and others to conduct penetration testing, verify cleanliness qualifications, and perform other physical and chemical testing. Our capabilities also include GB testing to ensure compliance with China market requirements for quality protective clothing production.
In addition, Intertek now offers a Full Life Cycle Assessment for Surgical Gowns service to help manufacturers determine the shelf life of their surgical and isolation gowns, as well as the number of use cycles for reusable gowns.
