Problem: Aus Systems had developed a disposable rectal biopsy system that needed FDA approval for use in the USA. The company needed to show that different sterilisation procedures didn’t change the structure of the plastic components.
Solution: The AMMRF ToF-SIMS Flagship instrument at University of South Australia was used to show that the structure of the plastic did not change. These results led directly to FDA approval. Aus Systems now exports the devices to the USA from their manufacturing base in Adelaide.
