Specialized Testing from time to time the environments a product or device will see or have failed in are not defined or not well defined by any existing standard test methods (ISTA, ASTM,

         ANSI, ISO, MIL-STD) for these cases EDI’s has worked with clients to develop meaningful and

         realistic tests.

              A specific case study was a medical device that was used in rural areas of undeveloped

              countries.  For this product EDI developed a method to test product operation and function

              after being dropped in wet to very wet mud and sand.
