    STP 1301 is the first publication of its kind to present a complete compilation of research on testing methods of potential use in orthopedic implant product development.

    18 comprehensive peer-reviewed papers are divided into 3 key categories: Clinical Relevance; • Issues of Concern; • and State of the Art in Properties Testing.
