Accelerated Stress Testing can be simply defined as: applying high levels of stress for a short period of time to a device under test assuming it will exhibit the same However, this must be evaluated in a separate study and is not related to accelerated aging. Accelerated aging factor: To be specified. Please enable cookies on your browser and try again. An accelerated ageing test for medical devices is used to simulate real time shelf-life ageing, in order to validate shelf-life claims. You will be redirected once the validation is complete. Note that the aging factor of 1,521 corresponds to 10 years, while the aging factor of 1,541 corresponds to only six days of testing. Unrealistic or extreme temperature and Conditions may be of interest in overall sterile barrier system performance. Life - birth to death (Cradle to Grave!) 4.5 When conducting accelerated aging programs for establishing expiry dating claims, it must be recognized that the data obtained from the study is based on conditions that simulate the effects of aging on the materials. In accelerated life tests, when a component has been tested for a number of hours under the stressed condition, we want to know the equivalent operation time at the use stress condition. However, a stress at the use condition is usually random, so how can we calculate the equivalent acceleration factor for a random stress? Temperature cycling testing is another method of accelerated life testing for products that are exposed to temperature variations during use in normal operation. www.evaluationengineering.com is using a security service for protection against online attacks.
