What is Biocompatibility?

Biocompatibility relates to a material's lack of interaction with living tissue or a living system by not being toxic, injurious, or physiologically reactive, and not causing immunological rejection. Basically, it means the material chemical components will not cause the patient harm. No single test may be sufficient to define biocompatibility. Two common test regimens are commonly used to measure biocompatibility, United States Pharmacopoeia (USP), and ISO 10993, International Organisation for Standardisation, tests for biological evaluation of medical devices.
