- Certification and Traceability
- Quality, Security and environmental policy
MicroFrance® instruments meet European regulatory requirements for medical devices, materialised by the affixing of the CE marking.
Furthermore, we have NF EN ISO 13485:2016 and MDSAP for the activities of design, manufacturing, inspection, and marketing of active and non-active instruments, including electrosurgical instruments.
These certificates also cover repair activities and thus ensure you that the work will be of the same quality as it would during manufacturing.
Update : January 2021 (Integra MicroFrance®)
The quality, safety, and environmental policy of Integra MicroFrance has been consistently adopted and implemented. It fully adheres to and integrates:
- Integra’s values.
- Integra’s quality policy.
- Designing, developing, producing, and providing our clients with instruments that are the most suited to their needs, particularly in terms of environmental requirements.
- Generating a reasonable profit from our activities so as to be able to meet our obligations, maintain our rate of growth, and reach our goals while also making sustainable development a priority.
- Recognizing the worth of employees and creating a satisfying work environment that provides security, the possibility for promotion, and participation in the company’s success.

Pierre DE TAILLANDIER,
The manufacturing site for Integra ® MicroFrance® instruments in Saint Aubin le Monial uses the Datamatrix ECC200 GS1 code for the traceability of certain MicroFrance® references.
The DataMatrix code is a high-density, two-dimensional barcode symbol that enables representing a large amount of information over a small area. The DataMatrix code is in the public domain, which means that it can be used in any application without being royalty liable. The “square” DataMatrix is the most commonly used and the one that encodes the most data according to ISO/IEC 16022 standard :
The GS1 system is characterized by the use of DataMatrix ECC200 coding which provides the maximum level of security. The DataMatrix code requires camera reading technology.
What is encoded at MicroFrance®:
- GTIN: MicroFrance® reference number
- Lot number
- Serial number
Thanks to this technology, the serial number :
- is not marked on the instrument in a “legible” way;
- allows the instruments to be identified in a unique fashion;
- can be used by the sterilization centers to differentiate instruments in the same batch.
