Beginning August 2014, Sono-Tek Corp. will make available its first Class 10,000 rated cleanroom laboratory for customers to conduct testing using Sono-Tek coating equipment. The facility is located in Guangzhou, China, and is operated by Sono-Tek’s China Distributor, Unitak.
The laboratory will primarily be focused toward Sono-Tek’s medical device coating systems, such as stent and balloon catheter coating equipment, as well as many nano-research applications.
“The new China-based facility is our first cleanroom rated laboratory. The rapidly growing demand for high quality medical devices in China has made this a logical place for expansion of our worldwide laboratory capabilities,” says Sono-Tek President Steve Harshbarger. “Sono-Tek already has a very large customer base in China for stent coating systems. This new site will allow China-based customers easy access to test our next generation stent and balloon coating machines, as well as our latest thin film coating equipment.”
Sono-Tek presently has six worldwide testing labs located in Germany, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, China, and its corporate headquarters in Milton, N.Y.
