Beginning August 2014, Sono-Tek will make available its first class 10,000 rated clean room 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. Stated by Sono-Tek President, Steve Harshbarger, “The new China-based facility is our first clean room 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. 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 the US, at their corporate headquarters in Milton, NY. Visit Sono-Tek’s website at http://www.sono-tek.com/lab-facilities/ to learn more or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
