FDA Mobile Medical App Guidances should be released by the end of the year
To continue the topic about FDA draft guidances related to software and information systems, the FDA put in its top list the release of the Guidance of Mobile Medical Apps.
Guidance of Mobile Medical Apps is in the "A-list" of FDA and should be released by the end of 2013.
In hot topics, we have also a warning letter sent by the FDA to Biosense Technologies. The mobile App named uChek Urine Analyzer and developed by Biosense Technologies, falls into the category of medical devices, says FDA. Biosense claims on its website that the App turns the smartphone into a medical lab.
With such claim, it's not surprising that the FDA wants Biosense to submit a 510k!
