BMEG260: Introduction to Medical Device Design

Resources for Standards and Patents

This guide was created to provide students who are taking BMEG260: Introduction to Medical Device Design with a place to search for Standards and Patents.

This guide is by no means comprehensive; rather, it is intended to serve as a starting point for your research and assignments. For further assistance on finding Standards, contact William Simpson, or Sabine Lanteri, for assistance on finding Patents.

The Library does provide online access to the complete set of ASTM Standards through ASTM Compass. To determine if individual standards from other organizations are in the collection, a title search in DELCAT, the library catalog, is the best option. If you only have the standard number, then you can use the ANSI Webstore (located on the "Standards Aggregator Databases" tab of this Guide) to search by the standard number and obtain the title of the standard. 

"As the U.S. member body of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), ANSI has been authorized to provide, upon request, complimentary access for students and faculty to selected standards currently available in the ISO collection. If needed, certain standards from the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) also be made available." Source: standards-university-outreach
