Parathyroid Autofluorescence Detection Device

Page Type
Product Code
Definition
An autofluorescence detection device for general surgery and dermatological use is an adjunct tool that uses autofluorescence to detect tissues or structures. This device is not intended to provide a diagnosis.
Physical State
The device has a patient contacting fiber optic probe connected to a console with a coherent excitation light source in the near infrared spectrum. The device is used to capture autofluorescence signals of the target tissues. Imaging contrast agents are not required for autofluorescence detection.
Technical Method
The device is a patient contacting device that quantifies the ratio of autofluorescence of parathyroid to thyroid tissue using a coherent excitation light source in the near infrared spectrum.
Target Area
Parathyroid glands.

CFR § 878.4550 Autofluorescence detection device for general surgery and dermatological use

§ 878.4550 Autofluorescence detection device for general surgery and dermatological use.

(a) Identification. An autofluorescence detection device for general surgery and dermatological use is an adjunct tool that uses autofluorescence to detect tissues or structures. This device is not intended to provide a diagnosis.

(b) Classification. Class II (special controls). The special controls for this device are:

(1) In vivo testing under anticipated conditions of use must characterize the ability of the device to detect autofluorescent signals from tissues or structures consistent with the indications for use.

(2) The patient-contacting components of the device must be demonstrated to be biocompatible.

(3) Performance testing must demonstrate the electromagnetic compatibility and electrical, mechanical, and thermal safety of the device.

(4) Software verification, validation, and hazard analysis must be performed.

(5) Performance testing must demonstrate the sterility of patient-contacting components of the device.

(6) Performance testing must support the shelf life of device components provided sterile by demonstrating continued sterility and package integrity over the labeled shelf life.

(7) Performance testing must demonstrate laser and light safety for eye, tissue, and skin.

(8) Labeling must include the following:

(i) Instructions for use;

(ii) The detection performance characteristics of the device when used as intended; and

(iii) A shelf life for any sterile components.
