definition of medical device
Definition of Medical Device
  • An “instrument, apparatus, implement, machine, contrivance, implant, in vivo reagent…including any component, part or accessory”


intended for use in the diagnosis or treatment of a disease or condition OR

Intended to affect the structure or function of the body


definition of medical device10
Definition of Medical Device

Which does not achieve any of its primary intended purposes through chemical action within the body


Which is not dependent on being metabolized for the achievement of any of its primary intended purposes

device classification
Device Classification
  • Completed in 1970’s through FDA rulemaking with input from advisory panels
  • Classification lists are in 21 CFR Part 800

Medical Device Classification

medical devices licensed as biologics or by drug center
Medical Devices Licensed as Biologics or by Drug Center
  • Some devices proceed through different pathways and are reviewed by CBER not CDRH

Generally in vitro diagnostic devices used to test blood supply; some cell and tissue products [test kits to test for blood type or HIV]

Devices for blood collection

  • Devices that are considered biologics
combination products
Combination Products
  • Need to determine which product application to submit and which FDA center will have primary review responsibility
  • Decision based on primary mode of action
  • Addressed in FDA Intercenter Agreements
  • Sponsor may submit a “Request for Designation”
  • FDA Office of Combination Products established in December 2002
  • Examples: drug-eluting coronary stent or antibiotic bone cement
paths to market
Paths to Market
  • Class I devices generally exempt from pre-market clearance by FDA
  • 510(K) clearance from FDA – show that class II device you want to market is “substantially equivalent” to another marketed device. SE comparison based on intended use, materials, performance.
  • PMA (Pre-Market Approval application) approved by FDA – show that class III device has reasonable assurance of safety & efficacy. Requires clinical testing data from humans.
