For the analysis of collageneos materials, tests are established according to ASTM-Standard F 2212 „Characterization of Type I Collagen as Starting Material for Surgical Implants and Substrates for Tissue Engineered Medical Products (TEMPs)”. These tests are required for approval of collagenous medical products by a notifyed body.
