Make complex device searches easy

Embase takes the pain out of creating the complex search strings needed for high-recall, high-precision searches. A medical device search form and preset terms take the guesswork out of search.

Minimize the risk of missing adverse events

Our team manually indexes full-text articles, so you can search by device, concept, manufacturer, procedure, device trade name, FDA-approved Global Medical Device Nomenclature (GMDN) terms and more.

Email alerts ensure you receive the latest in published information, including preprints and conference proceedings.

Embase filters for adverse device effects

Conduct a thorough State of the Art (SOTA) search

The lack of a SOTA search is one of the top reasons for MDR/IVDR non-conformance findings.

Use Embase’s search command to keep up to date with relevant SOTA content in accordance with regulatory guidance.

Demonstrate adequate coverage of European literature

For MDR compliance, databases must show sufficient European reach.

Embase covers all the content contained in MEDLINE and has unique coverage for Europe, including conference abstracts and European journals.

"One of the most amazing things about Embase is that the entire article is indexed for terms and product names. For medical devices, being able to locate information on a specific product is a huge plus."
