New Guide for Cardiac Microphysiological Systems

1. Scope

The scope of the Committee shall be the development of standardized nomenclature and definitions of terms, test methods, recommended practices, guides, specifications and performance standards for medical and surgical materials and devices. The Committee will encourage research in this field and sponsor symposia, workshops and publications to facilitate the development of such standards. The Committee will promote liaison with other ASTM Committees and other organizations with mutual interests.

Rationale

For this field to continue to grow there needs to be consensus on minimum requirements and best practices for cardiac MPS. This will serve to make conversations between different stakeholders easier. Similarly, it will make the science of cardiac MPS more accessible to the larger tissue engineering field. Finally, it will help journals and reviewers aware of the main stakeholders consensus. These things taken together will create safer and more accessible use of cardiac MPS, while simultaneously growing the confidence in the technology and field.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
