Particle analysis - ISO 17853, ASTM F1877

ASTM F1877 - Standard practice for characterization of particles

ISO 17853 - Wear of implant materials — Polymer and metal wear particles — Isolation and characterization


The ASTM F1877 standard practice describes procedures for characterization of the morphology, number, size, and size distribution of particles.

The ISO 17853 international standard specifies methods for sampling wear particles generated by joint replacement implants in joint simulators and specifies the test methods to isolate and characterize polymer and metal wear particles.
