Documentation: All our spherical tantalum markers are tested by independent, specialized laboratories and certified that they adhere to the highest standards (see right). Documentation for these analyses is provided in the product certificate, which accompanies the product shipment.
Standard Shipping: Products are shipped worldwide within 3 days of order using FedEx. The glass vials, held securely within foam inside a hard-case, are shipped in bubble-wrap envelopes inside a robust corrugated fiberboard carton.
The material used in the production of the beads is tested by an independent ISO 17025 accredited laboratory to confirm that all materials satisfy the requirements of the relevant industry specification, i.e. medical grade tantalum composition in ASTM F560 / ISO 13782 (UNS R05200).
The following chemical composition is guaranteed:
|Oxygen||Max. 150||Nitrogen||Max. 100|
|Hydrogen||Max. 15||Niobium||Max. 1000|
|Iron||Max. 100||Titanium||Max. 100|
|Tungsten||Max 500.||Molybdenum||Max. 100|
|Silicon||Max. 100||Nickel||Max. 100|
The actual values are provided in the certificate we ship with all our Tantalum markers.
Ensuring optimum biocompatibility of X-medics beads is a primary focus of ours. We therefore have product purity validated by an ISO-17025 accredited laboratory and provide independent ISO 10993-5 cytotoxicity tests.
ASTM F86 cleaning and passivation is standard on X-medics tantalum beads, carried out by a specialized ISO 13485 certified facility for medical device cleaning in Switzerland. A certificate from the cleaning facility accompanies all products shipped.
As required by the U.S. Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, X-medics has committed itself to only accepting materials from smelters that are registered as participating in the Conflict-Free Sourcing Program initiated by the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) and the Global e-Sustainability Initiative. For tantalum received by X-medics from August 2014 or later, the delivery date as well as the conflict-free smelter ID Number will be provided on the product certificate.
