Percent Solid Area
The reference area is the full cylindrical side surface area for the stent expanded to the labeled diameter (∏ X outside diameter X length at labeled diameter). The solid area is estimated by CAD software. The solid area is determined on unexpanded stents and assumed not to change significantly during expansion. The percent solid area is the ratio of the solid area to the reference area and is reported as a percentage.

ViVitro Labs Advantages
Many companies look to academia to handle their testing needs due to the reduced cost. With ViVitro Laboratory Services you gain the following advantages:
Test Method Validation
The FDA and Notified Bodies around the world are requiring evidence of Test Method Validation. ViVitro Labs has invested significant resources to validate the most common test methods that are not ISO 17025 accredited. We continue to work closely with device manufacturers and share the burden with our clients to validate other specific test methods that are less in demand.
We understand how critical your timelines are. Our expertise and experience ensure your schedule is met and our commitments are delivered on time.
Free Initial Consultations
All of our studies are scoped via no-cost, no obligation, collaborative consultation.
We happily provide Non-Disclosure Agreements for all services, including initial consultation.
