The biocompatibility testing referenced above cannot assure the biocompatibility of final or intermediate products made from Covestro products or the suitability of such products for their use in a medical application, i.e., the test data cannot be used to conclude that any medical devices manufactured from the Covestro products meet the necessary requirements of ISO Standard 10993-1. It is the sole responsibility of the manufacturer of the final end-use product to conduct all necessary tests (including biocompatibility tests) and inspections and to evaluate the final product under actual end-use requirements.
