Dynatek Labs attended the 2017 TCT (Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics) show in Denver, held Oct 30 through Nov 2 this year.
Drs. James Conti and Elaine Strope, owners of Dynatek; Kendra Conti, Global Sales Manager; and Chris Conti, Sr. Engineer, attended for Dynatek. The Acute Particulate Tester (APT), and the M6 Heart Valve Durability Tester, were showcased at this year’s exhibit.
Still haven’t seen Dynatek’s Acute Particulate Tester?
Make plans now to attend TCT 2017 and stop by our booth 4002, Oct. 30- Nov. 1, 2017.
Also featured will be our M6 accelerated durability tester for surgical and catheter-delivered heart valves as well as vascular occluders.
We look forward to seeing you there to discuss how Dynatek Labs can help with your vascular device durability and particulate testing needs!
From the company that was first to develop technology for acute particulate testing, Dynatek’s custom tortuous pathways designed for vascular devices such as stents, stent-grafts, balloons, occluders, and delivery systems is now available as a stand alone product in silicone or glass. Designed to meet ASTM and ISO regulations.
Dynatek Labs ships another order of its flagship tester, the M6 Heart Valve Tester. The industry standard for over 30 years, the M6 tester has had more approved heart valve designs tested on it than any other tester.
Dynatek’s products are designed to fulfill current and anticipated international regulations. Learn more about how our machines satisfy the following standards:
ASTM F2394 – 07(2017)
- ASTM WK60510
- ASTM WK60511

Dynatek rolls out a real Fatigue to Fracture solution
Dynatek Labs has always cast an eye forward to the needs of the future. Although the fundamentals of Fatigue to Fracture are well established, the real innovations center on experimental protocols that result in successful predictions of endurance limits and sites of future failures. Dynatek has developed an instrument, testing protocols, and testing envelopes that address properties of all implantable tubular elements such as stents and endovascular prostheses.

Acute medical particulate testing device patent awarded to Dynatek Labs
An acute medical particulate testing device for determining particle shed from a medical device during implantation. The device includes a closed loop system through which a solution is forcibly passed. An inlet port allows a catheter-mounted medical device to be incorporated into the flow loop. At least one tortuous passage is provided to replicate the vascular pathway and tortuosity which simulates the turns and bends and rubbing that affect particulate release from an implantable medical device as it is passed through the vasculature.

Acute Particulate Testing in our lab is growing fast
Acute Particulate Testing demand is growing and Dynatek is scaling up to meet the demand.
No one tests faster than we do!
Test at accelerated speeds? Yes!
Test at physiological speeds? Yes!
Test at high temperatures and expanded pH levels? Yes!
Verify stent deflection using high speed photography? Yes!
ISO, ASTM and FDA regulations require the testing of stents and stent grafts for at least 380 million cycles. At physiological speeds of 72 beats per minute (1.2 Hz), it would take one month for 3.1 million cycles of testing, or literally 10 years to meet the regulatory requirements. To meet the regulatory requirements of 380 million cycles, regulatory agencies allow testing at accelerated speeds, leading to shorter test periods, and significantly lower testing costs.
Dynatek’s testers feature proprietary Hyper Drive motors that are capable of over 60 Hz or 3,600 rpm, far in excess of physiological conditions. Assuming the intravascular device can tolerate such speeds, 380 million cycles can be completed in 10 weeks!
Dynatek can assist you in developing a test protocol that will offer you the fastest possible speed for accelerated durability testing of stents, stent grafts and intravascular devices.
In addition to accelerated speeds, some customers have chosen to test at higher temperatures and expanded pH levels, as part of their test-to-failure protocols. Contact us to find out more about such testing protocols.
Verification of stent deflection using high speed photography is the most accurate way to measure deflection. Dynatek routinely performs accelerated durability testing of intravascular devices using high speed photography.
No one tests faster than we do!
Correct sizing of mock vessels is crucial to the validity of a cardiovascular stent test. Dynatek mock vessels are tested and certified for compliance and wall thickness.
